Eden Hazard So Hard To Play Against, West Ham Star Admits

Eden Hazard So Hard To Play Against, West Ham Star Admits

Madrid appear to be closing in on a deal to sign Hazard this summer, though Chelsea are thought to be holding out for a £100million fee.

But the Italian was finally able to relax in stoppage time when Hazard was given acres of space to control Ross Barkley's pass and produced the finish to match his performance.

But the 28-year-old's recent displays could give Chelsea a bargaining chip if Real Madrid make an approach this summer.

Hazard really is superb to watch when he performs like he did against West Ham and he's now up to 19 goals across all competitions for this season.

The Belgian has netted league goals at a steady rate since joining Chelsea from Lille in 2012, hitting double figures in five of his seven seasons at Stamford Bridge.

Maurizio Sarri's men made it three wins in a row in the Premier League for the first time since September after registering a convincing 2-0 win over West Ham on Monday at Stamford Bridge.

Hazard could yet swap Chelsea for Real Madrid in a £100million summer transfer, but for now insists he remains focused on driving the Blues towards a top-four Premier League finish and Europa League glory.

"So in the world you can't find another player like that".

Chelsea are fifth in the Premier League but can move up to third if they beat West Ham at home on Monday (20:00 BST kick-off).

"I came here and I wanted to stay".

West Ham are in a run of bad form, and can't even muster shots on target when setting up in an attacking formation. "It's very odd. I think they could have done more for the English teams in Europe", he said.

"I think they could have done more for the English teams in Europe. And I hope that I can stay here [next season]".

"OK, sometimes we lost, but the way he wants us to play is the same way I want Chelsea to play, so that's why we have a good relationship".

Speaking to Otro, Suarez said: "We qualified for the UEFA Europa League but the season ended badly".

"Of course he is not a defensive midfielder but, as you know, in that position I prefer a very technical player".
