Chelsea will always be Premier League challengers, says Southampton boss Mark Hughes

Eden Hazard and some other key players are likely to be rested as Chelsea host MOL Vidi at the Stamford Bridge in London in a group L game of the UEFA Europa League 2018-19 on Wednesday, October 4, 2018.

And Alvaro Morata looked like he couldn't buy a goal, but through sheer perseverance and great movement he kept on plugging away and eventually got his goal. Luiz has played every minute of the Premier League so far and the London-based club has made a decision to reward him with a contract extension.

"For Alvaro Morata, it's very important to score and very important to play well too for the team, like he did in this match".

Eden Hazard is untouchable in Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea side, according to German defender Antonio Rudiger.

It was just Morata's second goal of the season - his first was in August's Premier League defeat of Arsenal - and Sarri reiterated the striker's importance to the team. In addition, the subscribers of BT Sport will be able to stream the match live on the mobile app or via online video player.

Chelsea scraped a 1-0 victory courtesy of Alvaro Morata's goal 20 minutes from time. "I was anxious about the fact that we have conceded three goal opportunities to the opponent, for our mistakes".

"I think he has played very well, better than the last period and I think he can restart from this performance".

"I don't want to talk about the opponents".

Over the years I haven't really been coached much but I'm at an age now where I understand football a lot more and I know how important it is to take different tactics from different managers on board. "He is improving week by week", said Sarri.

"This match we have changed eight players".
