5 in 4… Giroud should be confident ahead of Chelsea v Southampton

Eden Hazard’s knee slide celebration is a thing of the past

Hazard looked nearly certain to leave Chelsea in the summer transfer window after dropping several "come and get me" pleas.

"I'm learning it, I'm very passionate about it as it's very interesting".

Chelsea opened their Europa League campaign with a 1-0 win at PAOK in Greece and new manager Sarri is targeting victory in the competition, which would give entry to the Champions League.

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

"I felt I could have helped in the West Ham game and Liverpool in different type of things, but the manager tried another option and I respect that", he said.

"Everything goes through me - his is what I like - touching the ball 100 times, all the play going through me or Jorginho". It's very important for him to score, but I think it's very important for him to play a good match. It's what I like and how I see football. He was stressing out a bit, so the goal will do him a lot of good.

Humbly, Hazard quickly moved on to talking about his teammates and continued to shower praise on Kante: 'France won the World Cup because of N'Golo, two years ago we won the league because of N'Golo and Leicester won the league because of N'Golo.

Chelsea fans need to start seeing more from Giroud - who earns £120,000-a-week, according to spotrac.com - and Southampton could be the ideal opponent for him to rediscover his goalscoring touch.

The Italian said: "I think in this moment for the player it's better to stay in Cobham. He's a very important player for us". "He was unlucky in the last three weeks, after the national team (break)".

"I'm really looking forward to working for a long time with him".

The Belgian winger has scored six goals in his seven league appearances so far this season but he says that scoring isn't his main priority. I'm very lucky to have players of such quality and we're very lucky to have this positive start because of the players.
