EPL: What Chelsea assistant coach, Zola said about Hazard

Eden Hazard

The Belgian has been in stunning form for Maurizio Sarri's side this term and is the Premier League's joint-leading goal scorer after netting a hat-trick in last week's thrashing of Cardiff.

"I also watch other players to see what I can do better".

Hazard was heavily linked with a summer move to Real Madrid as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo but a transfer failed to materialise as Chelsea dug their heels in.

"But for now I'm really happy with Chelsea".

But deciding on the wearer of the armband is not exactly high up on Sarri's list of priorities at Stamford Bridge.

Salah is coming off the back of a season in which he bagged 44 goals and 16 assists in 52 games in his first year with Liverpool, although ultimately it didn't result in trophies for the Merseyside giants.

"Yet, if it was a straight choice between him and Eden Hazard, I'd take Hazard".

"Every player has to be himself - but for me Scholes was one of the best ever", the Croatia worldwide told The Sun.

In the last three season, Kovacic has scored only eight goals for club and country and he admits this is an area he needs to improve. I don't know. I don't remember. The one that seems to be thriving with Eden Hazard is Giroud.

"He was incredible. I still enjoy watching his videos on YouTube".

"Hazard is the closest thing to them out there at the moment".

More modern examples of players whom Kovačić looks to emulate include Luka Modrić, with whom he has played at Real Madrid and with Croatia, and Andrés Iniesta, who spent 17 years at Barcelona.

Kovacic, who joined Chelsea on a season-long loan deal in the summer, rates United hero Scholes as the best midfielder ever.

In Cahill's absence, several players have sported Chelsea's captain armband this season but the club's new manager doesn't pay much attention to the captaincy issue.

"It's fine now, with them winning and attacking, but if Chelsea are a bit off and they get a bit strangled or isolated up front, then you could see him wanting to shift to a more central role".
