Chelsea have continued to show resilience and consistency in the current league season. The Blues returned to winning ways in the league on Sunday afternoon with a win at Saint Mary’s stadium to extend their unbeaten run to 8 games. The performance of the London club has attracted attention from the media, with several football correspondents tipping the Blues for the title in May.
Eden Hazard has been in form for the Blues in the current league season with the Belgian netting seven times with two assist to make himself the most sought out attacker on the continent. The Belgian also contributed to the clubs victory over Southampton with a goal and an assist.
Despite the form the Belgian is enjoying in the current season, he has insisted that Chelsea at the moment is not considering the title.
“It’s too early to be thinking about the title – we know it is tough to win,” Hazard told Sky Sports. “But it is good to be up there.
“We’ll maybe watch Liverpool and Manchester City on the bus.”
On how he is finding life under Sarri, the forward added: “We are enjoying playing well and scoring goals.
“The first half was not so easy [at Southampton]. 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 – I’m just playing good football because we are playing good football. I want to keep doing it and keep everyone happy.”
Ross Barkley also put up an impressive performance which he capped off with the crucial second goal, and Hazard was pleased with his contribution.
“[Barkley] is playing well, he scored and made an assist,” Hazard said. “He is doing well and working hard on the training ground.”
