Hazard's sparkling early-season form, which has produced seven goals in nine games, has prompted debate about his place among the Blues' best footballers. His performance in Chelsea's first Europa League game in Greece was roundly criticised and his manager had looked exasperated by the number of chances he missed. "It's very important for him to score but also very important to play a good match".
A series of talismanic displays have delivered seven goals across all competitions, with the 27-year-old now leading the likes of Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot.
"I take those memories and think to myself, "I want to do that again".
"If I score I'm good, if I don't score and I'm playing good, for me it's ideal".
"We have to try to stay very close in the table with the top-level teams".
"To avoid the counter-attacks of the opponents, we have to do better". "I was anxious about the fact that we have conceded three goal opportunities to the opponent, for our mistakes".
"I am not anxious if we don't score for 45 minutes". I tried to introduce our team (at the pre-match media conference) that we are a warrior team, that we would try to compete here against Chelsea. "At the moment I'm good - if I'm the best, fine, If I'm not I don't care", Hazard told SPORTbible.
"We need to learn to kill matches", said Rudiger.
"They have a new manager and it seems that when Chelsea change a manager that initial season seems to be the one that they are really strong in".
