Chelsea wish to offer Hazard a new contract but he does not appear keen on signing anything at the moment, with two years left on his current deal.

Prior to May's FA Cup final, with Chelsea's absence from this season's Champions League confirmed by their fifth-placed finish in the Premier League, Hazard said the delay was because he was "waiting for good players".

He said: "The two players I wouldn't let go is Willian and Eden Hazard". I think it's better.

After scoring his first goal of the new season in Chelsea's 3-2 win over Arsenal on Saturday, Morata revealed that he is in the process of buying a house near the club's Cobham training ground and is committed to proving his doubters wrong as he raises his young family in the English capital.

"Those two are brilliant and how Willian didn't play more games is beyond me. I would thank to all fans that support me and I will make sure I pay them back on the pitch".

Kerala floodwater starts to recede, as fear of disease spreads
As of Sunday, the toll from the torrential rains and the subsequent floods that have ravaged Kerala since August 9 stood at 370. Pathanamthitta received nearly 8 times the normal rainfall on August 16 while Ernakulam received 4 times.

Morata is enthused by the success Sarri had with the likes of Gonzalo Higuaín, Dries Mertens and Lorenzo Insigne at Napoli and feels confident that under the 59-year-old's guidance he too can become a consistently potent centre-forward.

"He works with the ball always and when you always have the ball you have more chances and the strikers have more chances", Morata said of Sarri. Alvaro Morata only scored one more Premier League goal than Aubameyang last season despite the Arsenal man making his debut in February. "I hope that we are able to play 90 minutes like the first 25".

Chelsea head to St James' Park next Sunday to take on Newcastle United.

Offering minimal protection to an Arsenal defence who were desperately looking for some help, the Blues breezed past him with every attack and, after being heavily criticised during their 2-0 loss to Manchester City last weekend, it seems that Unai Emery's patience might just have run out. "I am going to stop smoking", he said. "Just for one or two years, then I will start again". I am working fine and improving.
