Sarri rules out two players ahead of Crystal Palace game

Eden Hazard and Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri

Links with a move to Real Madrid for the Belgium worldwide have persisted, with the winger recently refusing to be drawn on whether he would commit long term to Chelsea and extend a contract that expires at the end of next season.

The Belgian superstar's current deal with the Blues expires in the summer of 2020 and despite ongoing efforts to extend the 27-year-old's stay at Stamford Bridge, it has been to no avail.

Spanish winger, Pedro picked a hamstring injury in the Blues 2-1 away win against Watford at the Vicarage Road on Wednesday and will be out of action for 10 days.

The Chelsea boss said, as quoted by the Guardian: "I think that it's time to decide".

"I am not the president, I am not in charge of the market, I am the coach".

Moses beamed with nostalgia: "It was unbelievable - I thought it was going to go to extra-time and then he took on three players and they thought he was going to cross the ball, and then he just let it go!"

Sarri added: "I think it's right that the club knows the future and has the chance to programme [plan] the future". In the future, he can play also as a winger, of course. "I am really very happy with him in this position because he is very able to score and to open spaces for the team-mates".

Responding to suggestions Chelsea have little control over the situation, Sarri told reporters: "I don't think so".

Spain forward Pedro's hamstring concern could now leave Chelsea short-handed at the top end of the pitch for Sunday's Premier League trip to Crystal Palace. "So I think it's very hard to play here, but I think it's fantastic".
