Eden Hazard moved to Chelsea from Lille in the summer of 2012, and the Belgian has gone on to make 199 Premier League appearances for the Blues.

Hazard has admitted that his Belgium teammates Vincent Kompany and Marouane Fellaini influenced his decision to move to the Premier League, as not too many Belgians were in the Premier League at the time.

“I think maybe 10 years ago Vincent came and then Marouane Fellaini,” Hazard said of his decision to move to the Premier League.

“We saw the highlights of the Premier League every week and then we started to realise we all want to go in the Premier League because the Premier League is so special.”

Hazard has won two Premier League titles, the Europa League trophy and the League Cup since joining Chelsea.

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.
