Eden Hazard insists it is far too early to be confident that Maurizio Sarri will be capable of emulating Antonio Conte at Chelsea.

The former Napoli manager replaced Conte, who the Premier League and FA Cup during his two seasons at Stamford Bridge, in the summer and has made an encouraging start.

Chelsea did, however, surrender their 100% start to the new season following a frustrating goalless draw against West Ham on Sunday and Hazard, who had previously been in spellbinding form, benefiting greatly from his new managers attack-minded approach, believes it wont be until his side suffer a poor run of form that Sarris suitability to the job can be judged.

We try to keep the ball. When you are an offensive player you just want to keep the ball. We create a lot of passes and chances, he Hazard told Sky Sports News.

We had a bit of trouble [against West Ham] but I think the beginning of the season was great.

He is a great manager, but its easy to say when you are winning games. We will see in a bad moment. For sure he is a great manager, and he showed that to the world.

Chelsea face two games in the space of four days against Liverpool and Hazard is hopeful he will return to goalscoring form against the early Premier League pacesetters.

Next weekend we play Liverpool at home. I hope we can keep this momentum and keep winning games, Hazard said.

Everyone can score goals and create chances, so thats why we have been good.

We need to keep playing like this and we have confidence at the moment to do so.

Liverpool is the kind of game where you want to shine, so we will I hope.
