Mark Hughes: Time will tell where Eden Hazard sits in Chelsea’s history


"Sarri went on to single out Jorginho out for special praise, adding: "[He's] really suitable to the way I like to play.

"I feel sensations under Sarri that I never thought I would feel again", said Fabregas, who has played under Arsene Wenger, Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte in the past.

But with Chelsea hoping to do well in all competitions this season, Fabregas can have a key role.

Chelsea FC are in third place in the Premier League table and two points behind Liverpool FC and Manchester City in the title race. We lost the best goalkeeper in the world but I think the team is better this year than last season and we can see it every weekend'. I'm very lucky to have players of such quality and we're very lucky to have this positive start because of the players.

"He's got that stardust that all the top players have, even if they are not functioning as a team collectively then you know that in one second he can change the game, even if as the opposition team you've done everything correctly". "To be the honest the club have not said anything".

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.

"And he can improve if he becomes a little bit more aggressive and gives the best of himself".

"Debates of that type of probably better made when he's a bit older and he's got grey hair like me and everybody can discuss the merits once everybody's finished, but he's an outstanding player".

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

So I see less of my daughters, that's why I prefer morning training. I've been very happy for the last four years and a half, we've had great success, won many things.

"At the end of the day I have eight months left and at the moment I'm gone".
