Chelsea star Eden Hazard was linked with an exit from the club during the summer, with Real Madrid keen on signing the Chelsea superstar.

Hazard eventually remained at the club and is playing a crucial role in Mauizio Sarri’s system that has seen the Blues win our first four league games of the season.

Chelsea had to leave it late to get the three points against a difficult Bournemouth side, and Hazard played a huge role in the victory before eventually sealing the win with a goal on the 85th minute.

Sarri has hailed Hazard’s influence in the team and believes the superstar is an important player for the Blues.

“I don’t know if we are able to win something this season, but Eden Hazard is very important to us,” said Sarri after the game.

“In the first half it was very difficult to play – we needed to move the ball at a higher speed – but it wasn’t easy. We needed more movement without the ball, but I think we did well.

“I’m really very happy with my players at the moment. I don’t want to think about the last four matches – it’s better to think about the next one.”
