Frank Lampard played with Eden Hazard for two years before leaving Chelsea and the Blues legend believes that playing Eden Hazard in a free role just behind Alvaro Morata is the way to get the best out of the 26-year-old forward.

“He’s not shy in saying how he wants to be No 10,” Chelsea hero Lampard said on BT Sport.

“He wants to be behind Morata which I found interesting.

“When Eden Hazard came to the club I think his talent was very evident straight away.

“For the first couple of years he played off the left.

“I think what he’s getting at there is that maybe he was constrained slightly on the left, he could be easily marked.

“Whereas in this free role where we see him, particularly on Wednesday night, he was popping up all over the pitch.

“He can do a lot of damage there and we saw the ability.

“He’s been injured early season but his sharpness and freshness on Wednesday showed he’s back to where he wants to be.”
