Eden Hazard has been on fire since Antonio Conte switched to a 3-4-3 system, and talks of Ballon D’or (that has long died) are back again due to his formidable form.

Ex Chelsea player Tony Cascarino has suggested that Eden Hazard is too good to be left alone, and if teams must stop him, he should be man-marked.

He wrote in The Times: “Everybody knows that Antonio Conte is giving Eden Hazard a free role at Chelsea, so it drives me mad that opponents aren’t getting a player to stick on the Belgian and follow him everywhere.

“Martin Keown was like a rash for Arsenal, he just used to stay with people, no matter where they went on the pitch. He was brilliant at it.

“Why is nobody trying to man-mark Hazard? Mousa Dembele at Spurs could. He’s quick and strong, and it would take that type of player to do it. No teams try it, no manager says: ‘We’ll sacrifice x to stop y.’”

Do you think Hazard will be less effective when he’s man-marked?

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
