Chelsea predicted XI vs Southampton: Sarri to make big decision in attack

"Hopefully [Chelsea] won't be as good at converting chances as Eden Hazard is at the moment because of the form he's in".

"Maybe tomorrow it's time to see Loftus-Cheek, I think", the Italian manager added.

"I wish he came a bit earlier to be honest, it's a little bit late now in my career". But the young midfielder has remained on the fringes of first-team action at Chelsea.

Talking to SPORTbible, Hazard claimed that he's happy as long as he was playing well and Chelsea are winning: 'If I score I'm good, if I don't score and I'm playing good, for me it's flawless.

The Spaniard was voted man of the match as Chelsea battled to a 1-0 win over Hungarian champions Vidi in the Europa League group stage on Thursday evening, making only his third start of the season at the base of midfield.

So I see less of my daughters, that's why I prefer morning training.

And under Maurizio Sarri, the Blues have grown in leaps and bounds and a number of fans are putting money on them to pick up the trophy at the end of the season. I had it last week after we drew at Chelsea, when I turned to Maurizio Sarri and he was smiling, and he looked at me and said "you enjoyed that, eh?" and I was like, "Yeah, actually I do".

"I've been very happy for the last four years and a half".

Highly-decorated Cahill, 32, has won every domestic honour in the game with Chelsea but has admitted he is considering quitting the club in January in search of regular first-team football.

For many Chelsea fans, and others besides, the Brazilian's comments are being seen in an nearly treasonous light.

"We all think we're in a good situation in terms of performance", he said.

Southampton manager Mark Hughes thinks his side will go "very close" to beating Chelsea if they play their cards right on Sunday.

Southampton boss Mark Hughes has admitted it is going to be very hard for his side to stop an in form Eden Hazard when Chelsea travel to St Mary's tomorrow afternoon.
