Eden Hazard had a brilliant game against West Brom on Saturday. He scored a brace and got an assist in the 4-0 win, as he won the man of the match.

Hazard was the target of some aggressive play from the West Brom players, which got him angry as he turned the game on and produced a five-star performance.

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill has warned opposition team that kicking Hazard will only make them see his dangerous side.

“He’s obviously not one that is going to get hit and shy away from it so if that’s a tactic it’s not going to work,” Cahill said.

“It spurred him on and I thought he was terrific.

“He’s little but he’s robust and he picks himself up. He’s very difficult. It’s very difficult to get near him when he’s on form like he is and when he’s on form he’s great to watch.

“I think he has a pressure on his shoulders to deliver and produce a high calibre performance because he’s in that bracket where he’s a special player, not just in the Premier League but in world football and in Europe and the Champions League.

“Everyone is aware of his ability and want to see him perform so a lot of the time he does.

“Today [Saturday] he looked like he was having fun and enjoying himself in a good way.

“When he’s on that sort of form it’s beneficial but I must stress the team all around the pitch was collectively very good.”
