LONDON -- Eden Hazard can become the best player in Europe if he adopts the mentality of an elite goalscorer, according to new Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri.
The Belgian has not broken the 20-goal barrier in any of his six Premier League seasons, with Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte among the former Chelsea head coaches who have claimed he could reach the level of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo if he becomes more ruthless in the final third.
LONDON -- Unai Emery has no doubts that Arsenal strikers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette can co-exist on the pitch, even though he opted to start the latter on the bench in the season opener.
Emery faces a quandary when it comes to making the most of his attacking options as he has two two strikers in Lacazette and Aubameyang and two quality playmakers in Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
In Sunday's loss to Manchester City, Lacazette was sacrificed in favour of a 4-3-3 formation...
Mauricio Pochettino says he would never knowingly take a risk with Harry Kane's fitness, and that up to 30 members of staff are consulted before he selects a player, after Kevin De Bruyne's injury.
Manchester City's De Bruyne suffered a knee injury in training this week, having played until the last weekend of the World Cup with Belgium and then, less than a month later, featured in Manchester City's opening Premier League fixture at Arsenal.
Nine of Spurs' top internationals were also involved...
