English Premier League Report: Southampton v Chelsea 07 October 2018

Fabregas is yet to play in the Premier League this season but started in Thursday's 1-0 Europa League win over Hungarian champions Vidi.

"Everything goes through me - his is what I like - touching the ball 100 times, all the play going through me or Jorginho".

"Debates of that type are probably better made when he's a little bit older and got grey hair like me and then everybody can discuss the merits", he said before the game.

Brazilian-born Italy global Jorginho starred for Sarri at Napoli before following him to Stamford Bridge in the summer. It's what I like and how I see football.

Southampton manager Mark Hughes says his side will aim to limit Eden Hazard's opportunities when they face Chelsea on Sunday.

A knee injury interrupted Fabregas' start to the season, with the former Barca and Arsenal star saying: "I just came back from a hard injury".

The clean sheet was Arrizabalaga's fourth of the season and second in two weeks after the goalless draw against West Ham. I just need to keep winning games.

Asked if he would sign a new contract if Chelsea were to offer him one, Fabregas replied: "Yeah I'm very open about it".

"I'd love to stay at the club", he said. 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'. In a shared interview with Hazard and Jorginho with the Times, Willian explained why a change in training schedules has not left the best impression on him.

A feeling of resignation threatened to engulf Southampton, although at least they tried to drag themselves back into the game at the start of the second half.

A perfectly reasonable response one would feel, Willian did add that he is playing with "pleasure", and enjoys the fact that Chelsea are now playing "proper football".

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