Ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Southampton on Saturday, Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino says his whole team will be tasked with containing Eden Hazard on Saturday as the Belgian is too good to be man-marked.

“We don’t usually do something special when we play against important players,” Pellegrino said.

“But we will try to defend him in zones. If you do man-to-man marking, this type of player can move in different places and it will be difficult for us.

“We have to be focused – don’t leave him to receive too much where he can be really dangerous.”
