Chelsea continued their unbeaten start to the Premier League season as they cruised past Southampton at St.Mary’s
And yet again, it was their star man Eden Hazard who inspired the Blues to a comfortable 0-3 victory. The Belgium international opened the scoring after 30 minutes with a crisp finish past McCarthy. Hazard was involved yet again as he set up substitute Alvaro Morata for Chelsea’s third in stoppage time.
The Belgian has now scored 8 goals in 10 appearances this season, 7 of which have come in the Premier League. He has been directly involved in 11 goals this season.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said,
“We are enjoying playing well and scoring goals, The first half was not so easy. They missed big chances and then we have had a bit of luck for our first goal, but we controlled the match in the second half.”
“I don’t know if I’ve played better [than I am at the minute], I’m just playing good football because we [Chelsea] are playing good football. I want to keep doing it and keep everyone happy.”
“I don’t think about personal targets, I’m happy as long as we win. Maybe I need to think about that, some people only think about goals.”
“Ross Barkley is playing well. He scored and made an assist. He is doing well and working hard on the training ground.”
Hazard, despite their impressive start to the season, played down Chelsea’s title chances,
“It’s too early to be thinking about the title, we know it is tough to win, But it is good to be up there. We’ll maybe watch Liverpool and Man City on the bus.”
Next up, Chelsea host Manchester United at the Stamford Bridge after the international break. It is all set to be a thriller as Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho visits his old stomping ground.
