Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has urged his Chelsea teammates to share the scoring burden with Chelsea star Eden Hazard.
Hazard has started the season brilliantly and the Belgian captain scored two goals against Liverpool in the space of four days, one in the Carabao Cup win and another in the 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.
Rudiger has urged other Chelsea players to step up and score goals.
Rudiger told Standard Sport: “We need to learn to kill matches. It’s not only on Eden’s shoulders. We need the other players to help him with scoring.
“He has been doing his job very well again, but the other guys must score too – Giroud, Morata, Willian have to score. As a team all of us have to provide more goals, the defenders as well.
“At the end of the day the best scorers are Hazard and Pedro, but with the quality of players we have on the pitch, it’s (the lack of goals from elsewhere) not too good.”
Hazard has shown his importance to the team this season with the Belgian scoring six goals and providing two assists in just seven Premier League games.
