Chelsea news: Maurizio Sarri must motivate these two players to succeed - Eni Aluko

CHELSEA will only succeed this season if Maurizio Sarri can keep Eden Hazard and David Luiz happy.

That’s according to former Chelsea Ladies star Eni Aluko who reckons maintaining morale is key.

Former Blues boss Antonio Conte had a fractured relationship with his squad.

Aluko reckons Sarri will only flourish at Stamford Bridge if the players continue to embrace his philosophy.

She wrote in The Guardian: “He’s had a great start, with four wins in four games, and there are clear signs of him imposing his fantastic, forward-brand of football at the club, but in part it’s working because the likes of Hazard and David Luiz are buying into what he is trying to do.

"They had problems with Conte and have now decided, with a new man and a new way of playing, to go again.

"How long that will last is hard to say.”

Despite a relatively modest summer in the transfer market, Chelsea have started the season well.

Sarri’s brand of attacking football has been well received and the Blues eased to a 2-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

Hazard - who was heavily linked with Real Madrid during the summer - and Pedro were both on the score sheet.

Speaking after the clash, Sarri said: "I'm very happy with 12 points in four matches.

"But I always think we can do more. We can improve.

"I think now for us it's better to think of the next match.

"Because the gap at the beginning was 30 points.

"I think it's very difficult to cover this gap in only one season."

Chelsea will host Cardiff at Stamford Bridge after the international break.

The Bluebirds are yet to win a game having been promoted from the Championship.

They lost 3-2 to Arsenal during their last match.
