"Sarri went on to single out Jorginho out for special praise, adding: "[He's] really suitable to the way I like to play.
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. As I see the team tried, we put pressure up front and really tried our best.
"I wish he came a bit earlier to be honest".
The Italian said: "I am surprised". Definitely I'm very happy with him, I'd love to stay at the club. 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'.
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".
Alvaro Morata was on target for only the second time this season in Thursday's win, having earlier missed a number of chances.
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. "We are delighted and hopefully this is the first of many".
Hazard has played in over 300 games for Chelsea since joining the club in 2012 and was one of the stars of the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.
"At the end of the day I have eight months left and at the moment I'm gone". Instead, it will be Olivier Giroud, who has scored five goals in his last four matches against Southampton in all competitions, who will lead the line for Chelsea.
Hazard, who helped Belgium to reach the World Cup semi-finals in Russian Federation last summer, has already netted six goals in five Premier League games to hit the ground running in the current campaign. "So I think this case, for that kind of player, it's better to play for 35, 40 minutes than to have training".
