Eden Hazard admits he is torn between Chelsea and Real Madrid

Cesc Fabregas and head coach Maurizio Sarri

Cesc Fabregas has made four appearances for Chelsea so far this season

Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard has chose to reaffirm his desire to join Real Madrid, once again, publicly.

Chelsea dominated for large parts of the opening 20 minutes and they were camped in the Southampton half, but they were unable to register a clear attempt at goal. So I will see.

The Italian said: "I think in this moment for the player it's better to stay in Cobham". I don't want to say that I am not talking with the club or the owner. It is a hard decision.

The Belgian marvel has taken his game to another level under the guidance of Maurizio Sarri this season, playing with less restriction and devastating precision as he sits atop the goalscoring chart - with seven in the league. "I am 27 and I will turn 28 in January". "We can do better, especially defensively", Sarri was quoted by Metro UK as saying at post-match.

"I don't want that", Hazard said.

The victory sends Chelsea to the top of the Premier League table ahead of Liverpool's heavyweight clash with Manchester City at Anfield this afternoon. He had some bad moments past year with injury, but I think he can reach a fantastic level because he is a fantastic player.

The 27-year-old has been central to Chelsea's impressive form this season, with Maurizio Sarri's side second in the Premier League on goal difference after eight games going into the worldwide break. "I want what's good for me, but I want what's good for the club because the club has given me everything".

The 31-year-old Spain worldwide played under Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, Pep Guardiola at Barcelona and Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte at Chelsea.

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

He said on Twitter: "I will do some individual training sessions during the int. break and I'm confident to be back soon".

"I wish he came a bit earlier to be honest, it's a little bit late now in my career".

"I know that he suffers as he cares a lot".

Saints striker Ings, who has hit four goals since his summer switch from Liverpool, then somehow directed a close-range volley high over the bar following fine build-up play between Redmond and Ryan Bertrand.
