- Chelsea have won their opening five games to a Premier League season for the fourth time after 2005-06, 2009-10 and 2010-11 - more than any other team in the competition.
Responding to his manager's desire for more goals, Hazard said: 'The manager just wants Chelsea to keep the ball, and then when we can find a solution we need to find good passes between the lines, like Jorginho, Kovacic and Fabregas can do. "I think that he can spend less energy than now at 50 or 60 metres to the opposite goal". Since then, Eden Hazard has made more than 250 appearances for the Blues scoring almost ninety goals and has even managed to win two Premier League titles, even being named in the Premier League team of the year on four separate occasions. "So his actions, it shows he spends a lot of energies, and can have more energy in the last 25 metres".
The boss thinks he wastes too much energy in the defensive half of the pitch. "I think that at this moment Liverpool and Manchester City are another step [ahead] than us". I am very open with him because he is the history of the club. To close that gap in only one season is very hard.
"We knew they were unsafe on the set-pieces and we are not ready to answer".
