Fabregas commits future to Chelsea and reveals he wants a new contract

Hazard, who helped Belgium to reach the World Cup semi-finals in Russian Federation last summer, has already netted six goals in five Premier League games to hit the ground running in the current campaign. "To play against him last Saturday, I can tell he is one of the best and he's still young also". He doesn't get influenced by the media and what happens around him.

And the World Cup victor is the latest Chelsea star to declare he is revitalised after the departure of Antonio Conte - even if he now wants to play more in the playmaker's role.

"As long as he's having fun and he plays. You look at his stats this year and he's had an impact in nearly every game he's played in", Hughes told his pre-match press conference. "And he can improve if he becomes a little bit more aggressive and gives the best of himself", he added. I think I have a good understanding with the fans and players.

"I'm very open about it", Fabregas said. As I see the team tried, we put pressure up front and really tried our best. Touching the ball 100 times, all the play going through me or Jorginho, is a very important role for him, I'm learning it, I'm very passionate about it as it's very interesting.

"He's an example on the pitch and outside the pitch and he can be an example for his team-mates".

Unafraid to introduce an altogether different playing style than that which was employed by his fellow countryman, Sarri's Chelsea have demonstrated an attacking verve that leaves them looking a decent outside bet for Premier League success.

The Blues won the FA Cup at Wembley after Hazard netted the victor from the penalty spot in a 1-0 victory over Manchester United.

The Blues travel to St Mary's, live on Sky Sports Premier League, and Bertrand will be leading his side out in the specially created Nike boots.
