Eden Hazard was brilliant in Chelsea's 1-1 draw against Southampton.
The Chelsea winger was causing havoc for the Southampton defense the entire match and came up with a goal to give Chelsea the 1-1 draw. It was Sadio Mane that opened up the scoring on a breakaway in the first half, but Chelsea rebounded well and pushed Southampton. Hazard then received a long ball, beat two defenders, and scored right before halftime. The second-half was scoreless and both teams earned a point. Chelsea are now just four points ahead of Manchester City, but with a likely win for City today, their lead will be cut down to one. Buckle up, the title race is in full effect. Dec 28 - 11:06 AM

Eden Hazard had been deemed doubtful to play on Boxing Day due to a knock he picked up last week but was able to get fit in time and start against West Ham United.

Hazard not only started but shined in the Blues' 2-0 victory. He assisted the second goal of the match to Diego Costa and played the entire 90 minutes. He is still at risk to be rested and Sunday's match against Southampton could be the one. Make sure to have a backup available if you are playing him during this holiday season.

Eden Hazard is doubtful for Chelsea's match against West Ham United on Friday with a foot injury.

Hazard picked up a foot problem in Chelsea's 2-0 win over Stoke City and is currently being assessed before Friday's match against the Hammers. Mourinho has also said that no player is likely to play all three matches over this holiday period, so it sounds likely Hazard will be rested on Friday. With Oscar being rested last time out, one can expect him to start against West Ham and be a strong fantasy option.

Eden Hazard scored in the 7th minute and Diego Costa added another in the 68th minute in Chelsea's 2-0 win over Hull City.

Hazard scored his eighth goal of the season in the seventh minute, and Hull midfielder Tom Huddlestone was dismissed on the hour after being shown a second yellow card for a reckless studs-up challenge on Filipe Luis. Hazard then turned provider in the 68th as Costa scored his first goal in five games to seal the win. Chelsea remains three points ahead of Manchester City, which won 1-0 at Leicester.

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard missed a penalty in the Champions League on Tuesday as the Blues drew Maribor 1-1.

Hazard's penalty miss shouldn't be taken as anything too serious as the winger has played very well this season. In fact, Hazard exploded last weekend for 20 fantasy points and was the top scoring midfielder in the Yahoo! game, as predicted by Nik in his Player Picks last week. The Belgian star is the sixth best midfielder in the Yahoo! game and is a fantastic fantasy option going forward.

With Chelsea hosting QPR we are recommending Eden Hazard as the pick of the premium midfielders.

Wing-wizard Hazard was a top midfield pick in this column last week, but unfortunately he didn't perform well enough against Manchester United to justify his expensive price, returning a disappointing eight fantasy points. However, a home game against QPR is a different proposition altogether and we're backing Hazard to repay the faith shown in him by fantasy managers by delivering a match-winning display in Week Ten.

Eden Hazard is the premium fantasy midfield choice, as Chelsea visit defensively-fragile Manchester United

After watching what West Bromwich Albion were able to do to Manchester United's full-backs on Monday night, you fear for them against Hazard and the Chelsea machine this weekend. Hazard appears to be clicking in to top form and notched a further two goals in the midweek Champions League thrashing of Maribor in a frighteningly-sharp display. The Belgian trickster comes with the added bonus of penalty duty, so he's our pick of the premium attacking options this week. If you can afford him, splash the cash.

Eden Hazard doesn't believe he's a top five player in the world but thinks he is close.

Hazard is one of the young superstars in soccer right now and is amongst the best Premier League players, but he doesn't think he belongs in the top 5 yet. When asked who is ahead, he mentioned Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Franck Ribery, and Arjen Robber. Hazard believes that those players make the difference in each and every game while he has to still work on bringing the consistency against the top teams. We agree with him.

As expected Belgium easily brushed Andorra to one side on Friday as the Red Devils cruised to victory but the build-up to the game and post-match was dominated by talk of injury.

Thibaut Courtois [mild concussion] and Eden Hazard [toe] arrived for national team duty carrying problems following Sundays’ derby win over Arsenal; however the pair were able to train with the main group during the week although coach Marc Wilmots decided against risking the Chelsea midfielder on the advice of his backroom staff. It remains to be seen whether Hazard who was said to have a "blue toe" [heavy bruising / no fracture] will be utilised for Mondays’ tricky encounter in Bosnia. Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany also confirmed his early withdrawal during the qualifying win was a precaution having struggled with a niggling knee problem prior to the match.

Chelsea were far superior to Arsenal in today's 2-0 win with goals from Eden Hazard and Diego Costa.

The Blues were the better team from start to finish in a match highlighted by physical play. In the 27th minute, Eden Hazard made a fantastic run down the middle and was brought down by Laurent Koscielny in the box. He converted the penalty with ease. Chelsea controlled the match from then on but weren't causing too many chances in front of goal. In the 78th minute, Cesc Fabregas played a brilliant through ball to Diego Costa, who chipped Wojciech Szczesny to make it 2-0. The Blues now have a five point lead on second place Manchester City.

Chelsea star Eden Hazard is expected to be fit for the Blues' home match against Swansea this weekend after recovering from a minor injury.

The winger has been playing great this season as the load off of him has lessened with the arrival of Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa. The Belgian midfielder is free to roam and attack the goal whenever he gets the chance. Despite that, his price exceeds his value in the Yahoo! fantasy game. The Yahoo! game doesn't reward players for chances created and Hazard just doesn't score or assist enough to match his price consistently. Use him in plus match-ups but avoid using him as a weekly starter. The Swansea match at home is a plus match-up.

Belgium's penchant for scoring late in World Cup 2014 finally caught up with them as an early goal from Argentina would wind up being the only score of the match in a 1-0 final.

Despite entering the quarterfinal with a perfect 4-0-0 record, Belgium showed today that perhaps they were not as good as their results dictated. While relying on late goals didn't spoil the party against the likes of Algeria or South Korea, pulling off the same feat against the likes of Argentina proved too difficult to achieve. Chances were aplenty and they were the better side in the 2nd half, but no magic today. Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku were especially disappointing in this tournament.

Belgium XI: Courtois, Vanden Borre, Van Buyten, Lombaerts, Vertonghen, Defour, Dembele, Fellaini, Mertens, Januzaj, Mirallas

Belgium appear to feel comfortable enough to hand several key players a rest, including Chelsea's Eden Hazard. They should be right too, South Korea have looked perhaps the weakest team thus far in the tournament and with the table the way it is now, they should already be licking their chops to take on the United States in the Round of 16.

Russia XI: Akinfeev, Kozlov, Ignashevich, Kanunnikov, Glushakov, Kokorin, Berezutskiy, Shatov, Samedov, Fayzulin, Kombarov

Several changes for the Russia XI that drew with Korea Republic, but one name that is surprisingly not there - Aleksandr Kerzhakov, who came off the bench to score their only goal in the draw off the bench.
