It has been confirmed that Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard will be out for 3 months after getting injured in training while on duty with Belgium. News of this sudden occurrence must have hit hard on blues fans globally and could have a telling impact next season.
Here are 3 reasons Chelsea will miss the Hazardous Hazard:
Eden Hazard is the second most successful dribbler in Europe’s top five leagues over the past two seasons, just behind Barcelona star Lionel Messi based on statistics in a two year period. Hazard, with 254 successful dribbles, is one of only two Barclays Premier League representatives in the top 10. He is also the most successful dribbler, skilled and most fouled player in the English Premier league. For sure his skill and flair will surely be missed.
GOALS AND ASSISTS CONTRIBUTIONS:
The Belgian is not really known for his goalscoring feat, but has done well in this regard for Chelsea. With 174 appearances made, 57 goals scored and 35 assists created, the mercurial midfielder plays a vital role in his Chelsea attacking and overall team play.
“…I favour Hazard. I feel you should always look to a player who can score goals and get you on the edge of your seat. The Belgium forward has done that consistently,” said Jamie Carragher. His game influence cannot be more emphasized as his magnificent goal against Arsenal last season should provide enough proof as well as oppositions deployment of man-marking tactics just to quell his influence on games. Surely he’s a lethal weapon in Chelsea’s armoury and will be missed.
Let’s support true blues. Cheers!
