The European transfer window has closed and Eden Hazard is, despite the wishes of Real Madrid, still a Chelsea player.
But, unlike his fellow Belgian, a certain Thibaut Courtois, Eden hasn’t taken to sulking and refusing to turn up for training, instead, he’s showing his love for our club to serve up some sublime performances and with a beaming smile on his face.
After participating in the 2018 World Cup until the latter stages, with Belgium, Maurizio Sarri chose to use Hazard carefully in the opening two fixtures, bringing him on for cameo roles.
But, even that was enough for those watching the game to choose Eden as their man-of-the-match.
In the third game, against Newcastle United, Sarri started with Hazard and the jewel-in-or-crown, produced another sublime performance, coolly netting from the spot and shrugging off numerous attempts to maim him.
On Saturday, against Bournemouth, he started again and was, in my view, by far the best player on the pitch producing a performance that culminated in him scoring the second and decisive goal.
But, although the season is in its infancy, it is interesting to note that Hazard already leads the way when it comes to being involved in goals scored this season. Eden has been involved in 4 goals, scoring 2 and netting 2.
Eden is often accused of not doing enough, throughout a season, to be acknowledged as being on a similar level to Ronaldo and Messi, could that be about to change this season?
