CESC FABREGAS keeps telling Eden Hazard to be more selfish, more ruthless in front of goal. Be more greedy – and you can be better than Lionel Messi.

I hate Eden Hazard because he hasn't already scored 200 goals for Chelsea and he because was bought for £32 million and because other people like him and because other people hate him and because he h

Big kudos to Fabregas. Has encouraged Hazard nonstop and been like a mentor. One only hopes the latter do it consistently in the long run.

Cesc is a leader.

Is there a chance he could get the FWA player of the award this year?

Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for Kante bagging the PFA award (really deserves it, and you don't often see players in his role get it)....but I'm hoping Eden gets some extra recognition this season. (I would also say the same for Diego as well, who was left out of the PFA team of the year..he's going through a bad patch now but his form back in fall 2016 was one of the main reasons why we were able to build up a strong lead at the top of the table)

(i) 2013/14 vs PSG 1st leg (away) - Hazard plays well despite barely seeing the ball (a classic problem he and all our forwards had under Mourinho). Scores a goal and hits the post with a volley. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/26811631 

(ii) 2013/14 vs PSG 2nd leg (home) - Barely plays for 30 mins and goes off injured. Shouldn't have played at all really but Mourinho shoehorned him into the side. Out for 3 weeks.

(iii) 2013/14 vs Atletico Madrid 1st leg (away) - Did not play. Still injured.

(iv) 2013/14 vs Atletico Madrid 2nd leg (home) - 1st game out for 3 weeks which is a big problem at that level. Still rusty, playing in the most defensive XI ^^^ I've ever seen at the Bridge.

(v) 2014/15 vs PSG 1st leg (away) - One of the most embarrassing defensive displays I've ever seen under Mourinho. Hazard played as a left back all game. Willian RB. Costa barely got a sniff. Pathetic tactics.

(vi) 2014/15 vs PSG 2nd leg (Home) - By far the best player in blue on the day. The only player with any game changing quality at the time trying everything vs top class defenders who were particularly defensive because they were down to 10 men. Mourinho's inability to train high quality coordinated attacks also didn't help us in that game as well.

So where are the so-called big games in the CL Hazard has apparently not performed in for us? It's just a bunch of bullshit. You can argue his scoring record in the competition is not great, but 

(1) That was not my initial point of argumentation. I stated he was the best big game performer in CFC history (at least I've seen) alongside Drogba. with Didier being (1) and Eden being (2). I think that's fair comment to make.

(2) You started talking about his CL record which is neither here no there. It's just numbers with no real meaning without any context. 

So imagine in a hypothetical scenario Hazard goes to Madrid next season, does anyone really believe he won't be one of the most dominant players in the tournament? It's just an inane stick to beat him with at this point. 

first of all every game in the champions league is a big game. (only exception is 6th game in the group stage if you've already clinched top spot)

The standards I hold him to, Hazard has to be a lot better on the biggest stage. He's been plagued with letting the game pass him by in the champions league, he needs to elevate his game and be the dominant player on the pitch regardless of who we are playing. Whether it was PSG or Atleti or Galatasaray or Schalke Hazard needs to be the brightest light on the pitch... he's fallen short on more than a few occasions

That's quite a simplistic view, "he needs to be the dominant player on the pitch regardless...". Did you see how we were playing in those big games under Mourinho? Even Messi can't do it alone when isolated without support and played as auxiliary full-back. Let's see how he fares in a proper team shape.

Interesting list, this time done in a sensible manner weighing success rate.

wp185_dk.svg Willian, Moses, Pedro and Hazard all make the list. According to this, Hazard and Traore are by far the best dribblers in Europe.

what a finish that was from him for the opener. making it lookso easy but booy he hit it perfectly and it was just inside the post. quality strike. he is so good, it doesn't even surpise you when he does things like that. however it also does not suprise you that he squard the ball into nowhere when he had a free shot.

"There is no sign of a new contract for the moment. I am focused on the last month, and we will talk later," he told

Sky Sports.

"It's not in my mind now. I have two or three years left. I just want to finish the season well and we will see afterwards."

SORT IT OUT, CHELSEA!!

Rightly so they shouldn't be pressing Hazard with contract talks atm. That can happen in the summer.

We should go for Traore.

Let's say those reports about him going to RM is true and he eventually end up there at the end of the season, who is going to replace him? Sanchez is 28 years old and there is probably no big chance for Chelsea to sign him. Mbappe could be an option but he will probably sign for RM. Griezmann wants to stay atleast one more year in Atletico Madrid. Dybala is unrealistic target. Coutinho is the inconsistent genius but I think he will leave Liverpool only if there is a chance to join Barcelona. James isn't the type of player that Hazard is, Bale is injury prone. This is really fucked up situation...

Losing Hazard would be such a terrible blow. I don't really trust the board/Emenalo to replace him with a quality forward. Since he's arrived we've never even made a quality forward purchase anyways. We'd probably take one of Madrid's benchmen in the deal as well which would make it even worse. Considering the players United is reported to be signing in the summer our team would be much worse than theirs. Conte might go too then. Remember what he said about not being able to eat in a 100$ restaurant with 10$.
