Hazard will be hoping Chelsea maintain their undefeated record in the league this season as they travel to Southampton on Sunday.

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. It's what I like and how I see football. I've been very happy for the last four years and a half, we've had great success, won many things.

"I wish he came a bit earlier to be honest".

The Italian said: "I am surprised".

Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard has failed to dampen speculation linking him with Real Madrid, with the Belgian stating he is happy at the Blues now - but this is subject to change.

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

Sarri made eight changes for the Vidi clash, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek making his first start of the season on the day he missed out on a place in the England squad.

The Belgium global, who led his country to third place finish at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation struggled last term - scoring just 12 goals in 34 Premier League appearances.

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

Hazard is not playing Champions League football this season and it is clear that the Chelsea man wants to feature at the pinnacle of the sport.

Hazard has flourished under Sarri with the former Napoli boss demanding a possession-orientated style of play from his side.

Yet Hazard himself isn't as interested in individual awards: 'But what for you is the best player?
