While admitting that he is not thinking about the future, Eden Hazard hinted that he could be interested in playing for another club.
Hazard has enjoyed a return to form with 14 goals this season, which has led to a Player of the Year nomination along with rumors linking him with a summer move to Real Madrid. The Belgian international didn't do much to stop the links, saying he might consider leaving the club in the indefinite future despite being happy at Chelsea: "When it's not PSG, it's Real Madrid, then maybe it's Bayern Munich... strangely last year there wasn't anybody. I may also have personal ambitions to play in other clubs. But I'm trying to focus on the present, end up in Chelsea this year. I have a contract until 2020. For now, I'm here and good here."

Chelsea overcame Bournemouth 3-1 at the Vitality Stadium to reimpose their 7 point lead on Spurs at the top of the PL table.

The Blues raced into an early two goal lead. The breakthrough strike came in comical circumstances. Diego Costa received a low cross from Moses, pivoted and let rip, slicing the ball fortuitously so that it deflected off the face of Bournemouth defender Adam Smith for an own goal. Eden Hazard's finish for Chelsea's second was a lot classier. He broke free of the Bournemouth defence to receive Kanté's pass, rounded Boruc and slipped the ball into the net. The Cherries weren't dominated completely though, nearly leading on through a Luiz OG after only two minutes. They also hit the bar through an Afobe volley before Josh King grabbed one back with the help of a deflection before the interval. It proved to be a consolation though, as Alonso confirmed Chelsea's win with a sublime second-half free kick.

Chelsea bounced back from their weekend defeat to Crystal Palace with a crucial victory over Man City at Stamford Bridge.

The game was decided by three first half goals. The first came from the boot of Eden Hazard, who delivered a masterclass. The Blues opened Man City's defence with ease, Azpilicueta cut back for Hazard who calmly slotted the ball beyond Caballero. The shot deflected off City captain Kompany who has returned from his latest injury. In defence Chelsea were compact, pulling eleven behind the ball often. However, City drew level through Sergio Aguero after Thibaut Courtois made a mess of a kick out. Hazard got the the second on 35'. His poor penalty was saved but the Belgian made no mistake from the rebound. City pinned Chelsea back to no avail, though Stones should have done better from two opportunities from set pieces.

Antonio Conte said he is confident Eden Hazard will not only start tomorrow but also "play well", amid speculation the player maker would miss Saturday's home game against Crystal Palace.

Conte confirmed Hazard would be available for Saturday when he spoke to the media on Friday. The vote of confidence comes after Hazard suffered a "minor muscle problem" that forced him to miss Chelsea's trip to Stoke City two weekends ago, and both of Belgium's matches during the international break.

Belgium manager Roberto Martinez confirms Eden Hazard could spend between 10-15 days on the sidelines because of injury.

The Chelsea play maker failed to travel to Stoke after feeling discomfort in his calf during the final training session on the eve of the game. Antonio Conte revealed Hazard had suffered a "minor muscle problem" but it now looks like 26-year-old is rated as touch and go for the visit of Crystal Palace on April 01. "Eden has suffered an injury before the match against Stoke, it does not look so serious," Martinez said. "But he will not play against Greece. We are going to follow the injury." His absence at the Bet365 Stadium handed Willian a rare Premier League start, and the Brazilian served a timely reminder of what the Chelsea fans had been missing as he fired home a trademark free-kick past the hapless Lee Grant after only 13 minutes.

Eden Hazard has pulled out of the Belgium squad due to a calf injury that forced him to miss Chelsea's 3-1 victory over Stoke City on Saturday.

After the match, Antonio Conte said: "Hazard in the last training felt a bit of a problem in his calf and for this reason I preferred not to risk him." Although the injury is believe to be a minor muscle problem, Hazard will miss World Cup qualifier against Greece and friendly against Russia. He will have 12 days to recovery ahead of Chelsea's next Premier League match, a home fixture with Crystal Palace on Saturday, April 1.

Chelsea edge nearer to the Premier League title after another impressive and hard fought win on the road.

News broke late on Friday evening that Eden Hazard had not travelled with the squad to Stoke and many supporters were fearing the worst without their talismanic play maker. However, Chelsea battled their way to another three-points and took a step closer to becoming Champions in a highly charged and competitive match at the Bet365 Stadium. "In the last training, Hazard felt a bit of a problem in his calf," said Conte. "And for this reason, I preferred not to risk him." His absence handed Brazilian teammate Willian only his third league start of the year, but 28-year-old proved his worth by opening the scoring on 13 minutes and setting Chelsea on their win to a crucial 2-1 victory. Hazard will be assessed over the next 24-48 hours and the Belgium FA have been notified of the possibility that he could be withdrawn from the upcoming internationals.

Eden Hazard and Diego Costa scored as Chelsea cruised to a 2-1 derby win over West Ham on Monday.

While West Ham controlled the match early on, Chelsea needed just one sight of goal to break the deadlock. In a clinical counter-attacking move, N'Golo Kante intercepted a pass and feed Eden Hazard. The Belgian played a one-two with Pedro and blazed through the Hammers backline, before tucking away his finish after rounding Darren Randolph. Chelsea would then go on to seal the victory through Diego Costa, who tapped in from close-range to score his 49th career PL goal in the 50th minute. Despite West Ham pulling one back late, Chelsea held on to go 10 points clear at the top of the table.

Antonio Conte has revealed Eden Hazard has a minor injury but stated the Belgian will be fit for Monday's trip to West Ham United.

Speaking at his pre-match conference, Conte said Hazard picked up an injury after a collision during training but was confident the problem is not serious. When asked if there were any fresh injury concerns, Conte said: "Nothing important, apart from a little problem for Eden Hazard. He got kicked when we began training again on Wednesday but I think it is nothing serious." This is great news for fantasy owners as the 26-year-old has been a top performer this season, scoring 10 goals and assists in 25 appearances so far.
Mar 3 - 11:50 AM

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.

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.
