"I was very impressed by them but we expect ourselves to be able to cope with that better than we were able to show".
After opening up about his future, Hazard was keen to reassure fans that he will give his all to earn Sarri a trophy this season.
Asked how good Barkley can become, Sarri replied: "I don't know, but potentially, he is a great player". So I am just thinking about this season.
"I don't want to say, "yes, I am signing a new contract" and then in the end I don't end up signing", the 27-year-old told the media. "I feel sensations under Sarri that I never thought I would feel again".
[Andy] Robertson looks confident, [Joe] Gomez, Trent Alexander-Arnold, [Dejan] Lovren's come in - they've got good options. This is a big team. We drew against West Ham.
"So you need to be aware of this". No mistakes at the back.
The Saints should have gone ahead in the 28th minute with their first chance of the game, but Danny Ings somehow placed his effort over the crossbar. "I think it is possible but it is not in my mind". "But I just want to enjoy things on the pitch, like I am at the moment".
"In my head, sometimes in my head I wake up in the morning and think I want to go". He had some bad moments last year and two years ago with injury but I think he can reach a fantastic level because he is a fantastic player. When I can pass, I pass.
"I don't want to talk about this every day".
"Hopefully, he will carry the team until the end [of the season] and we will see".
It's no secret that playing for Real Madrid is Hazard's childhood dream.
It is a philosophy which Eden Hazard has been most obviously relishing, but this was also a reminder of how Ross Barkley is emerging as one of the main beneficiaries of the new regime. "I could talk now (about the new contract)". "No, that's the truth".
"I think he is a great manager".
"If tomorrow we are losing games then the speech will be different". He is very good. Even though they were 1-0 for so long, I did feel like they were really struggling to stay in the game - but doing well in the game at the same time. He jokes a lot.
"It is also when you have a dream and you want to make it happen".
"As the season goes on I am sure I'll continue to improve and show people what I am capable of". He is a amusing guy but he likes to work.
