Eden Hazard became the first player across Europe’s top five leagues to record 100 successful take-ons this season after his 10 during Saturday's 3-0 derby victory against Arsenal.
Hazard attempted and completed all 10 of his take-ons against the Gunners, a total that was twice as many take-ons as any other player at Stamford Bridge. The Belgian's performance was highlighted by his 10th goal of the season, as he beat Laurent Koscielny twice and Francis Coquelin on the dribble before slotting a brilliant finish past Petr Cech. In addition to his notable statical achievement, Hazard completed 22 of his 27 passes in the attacking third and made nine ball recoveries. The midfield has been one of the best options in fantasy this season, and should have another successful outing when Chelsea travel to Burnley on Sunday. Feb 6 - 7:34 PM

Chelsea's 13-match win streak came to end as they were beaten 2-0 by Tottenham on Wednesday.

While Chelsea looked dangerous at the start of the first and second half, the Blues were undone by a pair of headed goals by Dele Alli at White Hart Lane. Eden Hazard was handed the first chance of the match but pulled his left-footed effort wide in the fourth minute, while the visitors lacked the final ball to make Tottenham pay throughout the first 20 minutes of the match. Their inability to find the net saw them conceded just halftime, as Christian Erisken's pinpoint cross found Dele Alli to head Spurs in front 1-0 in stoppage time. Chelsea came out firing after the restart but Hugo Lloris did well to deny Diego Costa, while Hazard headed a close-range effort wide. Tottenham would seal the final 2-0 scoreline in the 54th minute when Erisken again found Alli to head home at the far post. The lose means Chelsea remain at the top of the table, on 49 points, and sit five points ahead of second-placed Liverpool.

Eden Hazard will remain at the clubs training complex despite Antonio Conte giving his players time off following their eleventh consecutive Premier League win.

The Belgian superstar was absent for the midweek trip to the Stadium of Light [GW16] after taking a kick to his knee during the hard fought 1-0 win over West Brom just three days earlier. However, Conte revealed prior to the Crystal Palace clash that Hazard had re-joined the main group in training although he was uncertain whether he would start. Hazard did, but he was still feeling the after-effects of the injury and while his teammates jet set around the world making the most of their mini-break, the 25-year-old will continue his treatment at Cobham to ensure his availability on Boxing Day. Conte also moved quickly to allay Diego Costa injury fears after he was replaced on Saturday due to tightness in his hamstring: "The injury is nothing important. Now he has more days to rest compared to his team-mates." Costa is suspended in GW18 but will return against Stoke on New Year’s Eve.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte confirmed that winger Eden Hazard is set to return for the weekend after recovering from a knock.

The Chelsea playmaker missed the club's narrow 1-0 win against Sunderland on Wednesday but Conte said he expects him back for Saturday's trip to Crystal Palace. "Yeah, I think he’s fit," the manager said. "He trained today with us. Then, I have to see if I decide to put Eden in the starting XI - not only him, but also for the other players. I have tonight to decide. It’s not easy to play three games in six days." Willian started in place of Hazard on Wednesday and it remains unclear whether Hazard will regain his spot in the starting lineup on Saturday.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has confirmed the injury that ruled Eden Hazard out of Wednesday's match against Sunderland is not a serious one.

Hazard missed the match due to an injury picked up during Chelsea's win over West Bromwich Albion, according to multiple reports, and was replaced by Willian in the starting XI. When Conte was asked if the injury to Hazard was serious, Conte told Sky Sports: "I don't think so. For this game he couldn't play." While Conte added that Hazard should be fit again soon, he did not provide an exact timetable for the Belgian's return. This puts Hazard's availability in question ahead of Saturday's trip to Crystal Palace and as a result could see Willian handed another start.

Chelsea will travel to Wearside on Wednesday without the services of Eden Hazard who has been omitted from the match day squad.

Hazard limped off during the latter stages of the game against West Brom but when asked about player availability in Tuesdays’ press conference, Antonio Conte said his squad would be checked in training: "I'm not sure at the moment." Hazard was not with the group at check-in [team hotel] and his absence in GW16 has now been confirmed. Conte could look to the likes of Cesc Fabregas who impressed during the 3-1 win at the Etihad while it was his pass, which Gareth McAuley failed to deal with, that Diego Costa punished to make it nine consecutive wins. The Spanish midfielder has experience of playing as a 'false 9'. Willian is another option at the Stadium of Light having lost his place to Pedro in recent weeks. The severity and precise nature of the injury is currently unknown but Conte will hope Hazard can be ready for the early kick off at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Roberto Martinez moved quickly to ease fears that Eden Hazard had suffered a serious injury during Sundays World Cup qualifying cake walk over Estonia.

The Red Devils demolished their Group H counterparts 8-1 yesterday, but the night was marred by the sight of their influential playmaker - Eden Hazard - signalling to the bench to be replaced with less than 20 minutes remaining. But, fantasy owners and Chelsea supporters alike can breathe a huge collective sigh of relief after Martinez confirmed: "It’s just a knock to the calf," which means his involvement at Middlesbrough this weekend shouldn’t be in doubt. Chelsea have experienced a difficult break and Antonio Conte will be keen for his international players to return fit and healthy after Diego Costa [groin] and Ruben Loftus-Cheek [hamstring] were added to the treatment room recently. Willian is available after recovering from illness and Kurt Zouma is back in contention after playing 90 minutes for the development side.

Eden Hazard scored the opening goal and it proved to be all Chelsea needed as they outclassed Burnley in a 3-0 romp.

It was classic Chelsea today, who displayed a fluid attack from start to finish with great play on the wings by Hazard and Willian. Hazard grabbed his second goal of the season by making a run from midfield and struck with his right foot into the bottom far corner in clinical fashion. Willian then got into the act with a brilliant one-on-one move against his defender and buried a low scorcher into the net. They could have scored five or six goals in this one but Tom Heaton did well to keep it from being an embarrassing scoreline. The Blues but the game to bed in the 89th minute when one substitute, Pedro led a charge and fed Victor Moses, another substitute with the latter banging it home. This is clearly not last year's Chelsea and Hazard has returned to the form that made him Player of the Year two seasons ago.

Eden Hazard has continued to impress fans in Chelsea's pre-season matches as he scored today in Chelsea's 4-2 win over Werder Bremen.

Hazard has played well since Mourinho benched him for a few weeks towards the end of last season and it looks like he needed the rest and a change of environment. The winger has been his old self lately, scoring multiple times in the pre-season. Kante's arrival looks to benefit him as well, as it allows him to be more involved in the attack. Draft Hazard in the first round of fantasy leagues this season.
