Eden Hazard and N'Golo Kante were statistically dominate in Chelsea's 3-0 victory over Leicester City, according to an article posted on Chelsea's website on Monday.
Topping the charts was Eden Hazard, whose performance included a goal on five shots, four take-ons and 20 successful passes in the final third. Hazard's goal was his third this season but his first since GW3 against Burnley. Former Leicester City midfielder N'Golo Kante was also a top performer, as the summer signing completed more successful passes (75) then any other Chelsea player. Their combined efforts helped Chelsea controlled 55 percent of possession in a 3-0 victory that saw Thibaut Courtois earn his second consecutive clean sheet. Oct 17 - 3:43 PM

Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and Michy Batshuayi all featured as Belgium defeated Gibraltar 6-0 in a World Cup qualification match on Monday night.

Hazard, who skippered the Red Devils, scored for the second consecutive match and also provided an assist for Christian Benteke. Courtois completed the full game and recorded his third straight clean sheet in WCQ, while Batshuayi started on the bench but ended the match on the pitch, replacing Benteke in the 80th minute. Belgium now sit level with Greece, on nine points, at the top of Group H. The trio will now shift their focus back to the Premier League and begin preparations for Chelsea's GW8 fixture against Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

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.

Marc Wilmots has confirmed that he expects Eden Hazard to be ready to face Wales on Friday despite picking up a thigh injury during the rout over Hungary.

Hazard deservedly took all the accolades for a scintillating performance in Toulouse last Sunday as Belgium swept the unfancied Hungarians aside with consummate ease. A dazzling solo effort on 79 minutes capped an excellent night for Hazard although there were concerns following his withdrawal just moments later. "Hazard felt a kind of thigh contraction at half-time against Hungary, that's why I replaced him in the second half," Wilmots said. However, the bad news for Wales is that the Chelsea star will be ready for the quarter-final clash this week: "I think he will be back in training on Thursday. He is in the care of the physios and is working with them. He is recovering well enough that he should be 100 per cent the day before the match."

Eden Hazard moved quickly to allay injury concerns after the Belgium playmaker sprained his thumb during Saturdays win over the Republic of Ireland.

The Chelsea attacker could wear a protective splint to prevent further damage in tomorrow’s final Group E game against Sweden: "There's no panic," he said. "You play with your feet, not your hands. It's not too painful." However, Marc Wilmots is unlikely to risk Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele who was forced off in the same game due to an ankle problem, although the 28-year-old was upbeat earlier this week: "We will see, I may be healed after two days." The Red Devils only need a point to secure their progression to the knockout phase of the competition.

Eden Hazard is expected to be fit for Belgium's clash against Italy today.

Hazard suffered an injury in Friday's training session but has since recovered and is expected to feature against Italy. The clash between the two is an important one, and Hazard believes it will decide Group E. The Chelsea winger will need to be a big part of breaking down Italy's notoriously good defense, so he'll have his chance to bring his team victory.

Belgium are expected to be at full strength for their European Championship opener against Italy on Monday despite Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard limping out of training on Friday.

The 25-year-old injured his foot 50 minutes into a practice match and played no further part in the session, but coach Marc Wilmots was quick to allay any concerns regarding his captains fitness: "I don’t think it is serious, just a knock." There was more good news when the Belgium boss revealed Barcelona defender Vermaelen had recovered from a calf injury which had threatened his involvement in France: "Thomas has done well in training over the last days and is completely ready for the battle. He has no more problems." His availability means Nicolas Lombaerts has left the squad and returned home. The Zenit St. Petersburg centre-back was travelling with the group on standby.

Eden Hazard said he's very excited to play against his former boss Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho took over at Manchester United a few days ago and despite rumors that Hazard might be leaving Chelsea, the winger seems excited to stay at Chelsea. He is focused on the Euro Championships at the moment, but we will have more on his future as rumors develop. For now, he seems to be set to stay at Chelsea, and if he does, he will be a good fantasy target next season who should come a bit cheaper than usual after a poor season.

Eden Hazard continued his resurgence with a brilliant goal to put Chelsea ahead but Liverpool would find a late equalizer as the two sides played to a 1-1 draw.

Where he will play next season remains a mystery, but Hazard is officially back to his old self again, scoring his fourth goal in his last four matches. After the two sides traded blows in the opening half hour with Liverpool looking the likelier to score, Hazard turned up with a fantastic individual effort in the 32nd minute. Dribbling around the outside of the box, he created the space to put the ball on his right foot while entering the area and delivered a strike into the far corner with precision accuracy. Baba Rahman was credited with an assist. Asmir Begovic did well during the match to keep out some efforts sent forth by the Reds but made a mistake in the final minute that cost the Blues two points, failing to palm away a cross effectively, allowing Liverpool to score an easy equalizer. Chelsea will wrap up their season next weekend hosting Leicester as last year's title-winners will take on this year's.

Chelsea overcame a two goal deficit with Eden Hazard scoring the equalizer to earn a 2-2 draw with Tottenham, ending their rival's hopes of a Premier League title.

With so much on the line and the deep-seeded rivalry between these two clubs, tonight's match was as dramatic as expected. The Blues showed cracks in their defense that had been haunting them all season and let Tottenham build a two goal lead that was taken into halftime. Chelsea would pull one back when a Willian corner fell into the path of Gary Cahill and the center back used his leg instead of his head to fire past Hugo Lloris. Hazard started the game on the bench despite having scored a brace the previous week, but he provided an immediate spark when he came onto the pitch and leveled the score in the 83rd minute, finishing with a beautiful curling effort after being set up by Diego Costa. It has been an overall disappointing season, the worst season for a defending champion in PL history, but Chelsea will be very pleased to be the club to dash the hopes of their arch-rivals from obtaining a league title.

After a season lost in the wilderness, Eden Hazard scored a brace as Chelsea cruised to a 4-1 victory.

The Belgium international had yet to score in the Premier League this season but he put that streak to rest in style with a brace as the Blues went up early and blew away the Cherries 4-1. Pedro opened the scoring and Willian joined him with Cesc Fabregas assisting both.

Eden Hazard will miss three to four weeks with a hip-injury.

Hazard is dealing with hip and groin problems and Guus Hiddink has stated he will miss at least three weeks. Hazard has been horrific this season and has failed to provide a spark to Chelsea's attack. He is one of the primary reasons the Blues are in mid-table instead of the title race, and the injury will only force Willian to take on even more responsibility of leading this team in attack.

Guus Hiddink believes Eden Hazard is doing everything he can to recapture the form which earned the Chelsea playmaker last seasons’ Professional Football Associations’ player of the year award.

Hazard was singled out for criticism on Wednesday as Chelsea exited the Champions League at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain for the second successive year. So bad was his performance that teammate Branislav Ivanovic claimed Hazard was ‘carrying a knock’ insisting the 25-year-old should be commended for his ‘commitment.’ The fact that Hazard swopped shirts with Angel di Maria at half-time – when trailing by a goal – enraged supporters who have questioned his desire to remain at the club. Hiddink paints a slightly different picture suggesting recent injuries have hampered his progress but hints that Hazard could be on his way back although the Dutchman will be careful not to over-work his Belgium starlet.

Eden Hazard was only deemed worthy of being a second half substitute as Chelsea came back to draw with Manchester United while he was on the pitch.

Eden Hazard's return from a hamstring injury has been more protracted than one might expect for last season's Premier League Player of the Year. Despite being fit enough for a spot on the bench over Chelsea's past two matches, the Belgium international hasn't been tapped to start either by Guus Hiddink. Rather he has been cast in the role of second half change of pace by the Dutch interim manager. With Chelsea's play improving and Hazard contributing little during that period of improved play, it is reasonable to wonder if the arrangement will stand despite Hazard being fully fit.
