Cape Town - Chelsea forward Eden Hazard insists manager Maurizio Sarri's coaching style suits him better than Jose Mourinho's.

The Blues coach is under pressure following his side's 6-0 defeat against Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday.

Chelsea have now lost three of their last four league games and they have slipped out of the top four as a result.

With Chelsea struggling, Hazard's future is up in the air as he continues to flirt with a move to Real Madrid, but the Belgium international insists Sarri’s style suits his game.

He told the club's official website: "All the managers I've played for have given me something. From when I started with Claude Puel at Lille, to now with Maurizio Sarri.

"They all see football in different ways which is why I'm the player I am. They have all given me important advice.

"Jose Mourinho was special, but the way Sarri and Rudi Garcia [former Lille coach] like to play is more like my philosophy of football, but they've all given me a lot."

Chelsea are next in action on Thursday when they travel to Swedish club Malmo for a Europa League last 32 first leg tie.
