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

Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata in action against Vidi in the UEFA Europa League on 4 October 2018

'A lot of the team have already achieved the success of winning the league and that's a goal of mine.

Kante (6): the diminutive midfielder made some passes in the first half but didn't do much in the second half, he played a defensive game.

Southampton last games against Chelsea came in a double header last season, as striker, Olivier Giroud inspired a league comeback from 2-0 down against the Saints to win 3-2 last season.

They were made to rue that miss as Chelsea went ahead two minutes later as Barkley dispossessed Hojbjerg before playing in Hazard, who curled the ball beyond Alex McCarthy.

There was no way back for Southampton and Chelsea wrapped-up the win in stoppage time as Alvaro Morata lifted the ball over McCarthy to make it 3-0 after being send clear by Hazard in the 93rd minute.

Willian delivered the resultant free-kick deep into the area and Giroud - on his 200th Premier League appearance - acrobatically fired across goal for Barkley to tap in his first goal for the west London club. "Definitely I'm very happy with him".

"We are enjoying playing well and scoring goals", he told Sky Sports.

"We're winning almost every game now and Chelsea are one of the best clubs so there are going to be top players in the starting XI", said Loftus-Cheek, speaking in an interview with Sky Sports before Sunday's trip to Southampton. I'm very happy for the players - but we can do more.

"He is doing well and working hard on the training ground".

Chelsea have overcome a number of tough tests in the early stages of the season, and have proven their title credentials by going unbeaten in the first eight matches of the competition.

They will return to Premier League action after the worldwide break when they take on Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on 20 October in front of their home fans. "We'll maybe watch Liverpool and Man City on the bus".

They will look to carry their fine form on following the domestic pause when they take on under pressure Jose Mourinho's Manchester United.
