Hudson-Odoi scored his first senior goal for Chelsea in a 4-0 win over PAOK in the Champions League last month but afterwards Sarri cautioned that he is not yet ready for the Premier League.

Olivier Giroud is also in contention should Sarri opt to move Hazard out wide, while there could also be an adjustment in midfield with Ross Barkley potentially coming in for Mateo Kovacic. "I know very well that it's not easy, but I think we can do a new deal for both".

The versatile attacking midfielder once again shone for the Blues during their 2-1 victory against Watford on Wednesday as he went on to bag a brace.

The former Napoli manager, however insisted that he prefers to play Hazard in the false nine position. "He is able to play in the centre of the pitch", the Italian said, according to FourFourTwo.

A large selection of Chelsea fans are desperate to see academy products Hudson-Odoi and midfield teammate Ruben Loftus-Cheek develop into key players at Stamford Bridge. This will help him to play more consistently at the highest level and it will also help the Blues hierarchy to gauge whether he is genuine first-team material.

Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports, Sarri said, "I like to play in the Christmas days". Ruben Loftus-Cheek has played in eight league matches and five Europa League contests; Callum Hudson-Odoi has also been given a chance to show what he can do.

'We do a lot of tactical work, and you can see on the pitch we have improved a lot from past year; we have adapted to the new system, ' said Hazard.

'Sometimes it's tough, for seven years I have got kicked all the time, ' Hazard told Chelsea's official club website.
