Eden Hazard is potentially in the best form of the career having spearheaded Chelsea's attacking rebirth under manager Maurizio Sarri.

"I feel, given what I've already seen, they will have a strong season and go very close".

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.

Meanwhile, Sarri went on to say he's thrilled at how quickly his squad have gelled together since his summer arrival.

Talking to SPORTbible, Hazard claimed that he's happy as long as he was playing well and Chelsea are winning: 'If I score I'm good, if I don't score and I'm playing good, for me it's flawless. "I think he did very well in the last 30 minutes in Greece and very well for 90 minutes against Liverpool", Sarri said.

"And he can improve if he becomes a little bit more aggressive and gives the best of himself". This is part of the game, it's still early for me.

"I'd love to stay at the club", he said.

Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea visit St Mary's live on Sky Sports Premier League, hoping to bounce back to the top of the table ahead of Liverpool's clash with Manchester City. I'm very lucky to have players of such quality and we're very lucky to have this positive start because of the players. I'm learning it. I'm very passionate about it as it's very interesting.

"I will keep training on the pitch and we will see what happens, if I score then it is fine, if I don't but I play well then that for me is fine, I only need to keep winning games".

Yet Hazard himself isn't as interested in individual awards: 'But what for you is the best player?

He confirmed there had been no talks about a new Blues deal, adding: "I have eight months left and at the moment I'm gone".

"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".
