Bournemouth boss Howe: Chelsea and Hazard will keep improving

Chelsea were again impressive for their 2-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

Pedro and Eden Hazard struck Chelsea's goals for their fourth consecutive win.

Cherries boss Eddie Howe said of his opponents: "I think they'll improve as the season goes on. Maurizio Sarri's team is a really difficult one to play against. We prepared well for the match but they're an organised side.

"We tried to make it difficult for individual players to hurt us and we knew that we'd have limited opportunities to score and play on the counter-attack.

"Hazard has individual brilliance and at times you have to accept that, but Chelsea have a number of these players so you have to make sure your team is prepared."
