Chelsea vs Newcastle: Maurizio Sarri's fear of a slow start at Chelsea may have been unfounded but the head coach insists his side are still very much a work in progress.
However, Hazard is still getting up to full speed as Chelsea look to record a third win on the spin when they travel to Newcastle on Sunday.
Like Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard, Cahill returned to pre-season training later than some of his colleagues having been a member of the England squad that reached the World Cup semi-finals in Russian Federation.
"We gave everything to Sarri and in three years we have not won anything", De Laurentiis said on Friday.
Newcastle, meanwhile, is 0-1-1 in the Premier League thus far, securing its first point of the season last weekend at Cardiff.
"I play a little bit more forward", the 27-year-old Kante said.More news: Bama, Clemson lead AP preseason Top 25 poll
"But I think, in this case, with this team, there are very intelligent players", noted Sarri.
"Doing things this way depends only on you".
Sarri also revealed that he thinks of Pep Guardiola very highly, while lavishing praise on the Catalan coach. "So I think that Eden will stay with us for all the season". In the other way you depend on the movements of the opponent.
"I have to say thank you to Rafa because when I arrived in Naples I had a feeling the team was nearly ready to play my football", he said.
Azpilicueta forced Dubravka into a smart save five minutes after the restart with the Magpies retreating deep into their own half, but with Benitez's men repeatedly squandering possession, there was little respite.
The next decent chance only came in the 73 minute when Antonio Rudiger created space of himself on the edge of the box, but the Chelsea man's shot came back off the crossbar.
