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. Oct 15 - 11:24 PM

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.
Jun 22 - 11:08 AM

Belgium XI: Courtois; Alderweireld, Van Buyten, Kompany, Vertonghen; Witsel, Dembele, De Bruyne; Hazard, Chadli, Lukaku

Romelu Lukaku was a injury doubt as was Kevin De Bruyne, but both pass their fitness test and are included in a very strong XI. Thomas Vermaelen is somewhat surprisingly excluded but is available off the bench as are fellow Premier League stars Marouane Fellaini, Kevin Mirallas and Adnan Januzaj.

Eden Hazard has once again dismissed rumors of him moving to Paris Saint-Germain and has confirmed he's staying at Chelsea next season.

There have been rumors surrounding Hazard after he and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho exchanged some words at the end of the season but both the player and the manager have dismissed all rumors surrounding his departure. Hazard seems primed to have another great season at Chelsea and he will continue being a great fantasy option for managers. The arrival of Diego Costa should only increase his productivity and you can expect his assists to increase. Use Hazard with confidence in both World Cup and Premier League fantasy games.

Eden Hazard will wear number 10 for Chelsea next year, switching from his current number 17.

Amidst rumors of a possible Hazard departure, Chelsea are doing everything in their power to keep their star man happy. They're giving him the prized number 10 which is now available after the departure of Juan Mata in midseason. Hazard wears number 10 for Belgium and stated he's very happy to be wearing the number next season. It sounds more and more likely that Hazard will remain at Chelsea as we've expected all along.

Eden Hazard continues to be linked with a move to French giants Paris Saint-Germain.

Hazard had a bit of a falling out with Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho and that is only giving more fuel to the fire. Hazard is Chelsea's best player and it would be crazy for Chelsea to sell him, especially considering they don't need the money. The Blues already sold David Luiz for a hefty fee, ensuring they don't violate the UEFA transfer rules. Despite the rumors, Hazard says he is only looking forward to the World Cup and is not paying attention to the media. Teammates are chiming in that there is nothing between Hazard and Mourinho and our guess is that Hazard will be wearing blue next season.

Eden Hazard has won Chelsea's Player of the Year award after leading the Blues to an impressive season.

Hazard was Chelsea's leader in attack all season long and is proving to be one of the best players in the world. Despite his success, he was reminded by Jose Mourinho that he needs to work even harder next season. Hazard had lapses where he struggled in defense, most noticeably in Chelsea's semi-final loss against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League. His blown defensive assignments led to two goals that resulted in Chelsea getting eliminated. Considering his fantastic attacking skills and Mourinho's ability to influence players, we expect Hazard to continue being one of Chelsea's number one choices next season.

After starting the day on the bench, Eden Hazard was subbed on to begin the second half for Chelsea, but the Blues could not find a goal and settled for a 0-0 draw with Norwich City, all but ending their title hopes.

The draw means one of Liverpool or Manchester City need only win one of their remaining two matches to eliminate the Blues title chances, which is a virtual certainty. Chelsea will come up short due in large part to their surprisingly poor form lately at Stamford Bridge, where they mustered just a single point in their final two home games against relegation battlers Sunderland and Norwich. Mourinho decided to keep Hazard out of the starting lineup which may be due to what the manager has hinted as a recent disappointing display from the all-world winger. Andre Schurrle spearheaded the attack in the first half and had some chances, banging one shot off the post. It was Hazard's show to begin the second half, as his influence clearly boosted their threat, nearly drawing a penalty at one point, but in the end there was no finished product to be had.

Eden Hazard has been deemed fit for Chelsea's Champions League match against Atletico Madrid tomorrow.

Hazard has missed the last few weeks through injury but has been participating in practice and is available for selection against Atletico tomorrow. Jose Mourinho clearly stated that John Terry will start but when talking about Hazard, he said "Hazard is ready, it's my decision if he starts but he's ready." That leads us to believe Hazard is not guaranteed to start but from what we've seen this season, Hazard is Chelsea's best attacking player and Mourinho trusts him. We don't see an option where Hazard doesn't start tomorrow's match.
