Hazard: I am 200% fit

Eden Hazard has said that he is 200% fit, despite being left out of Chelsea’s midweek Europa League clash against PAOK.

The Belgian didn’t travel to Greece, with Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri saying that the Blues playmaker had told him that he was tired, although he was restored to the starting XI for their 0-0 draw against West Ham on Sunday.

However, he has denied that he is already suffering from fatigue, telling Sky Sports: “I feel 200 per cent!”

“(Sunday) was hard; I missed a couple of passes, dribbles but I feel good. Confidence is up so I hope we can keep up our momentum to win games.”

Despite having the Lions share of possession at the London Stadium, Chelsea were unable to break down a resilient West Ham defence, and Hazard said his side should have done better:

“We knew it was a difficult place to come and win,” he added. “You can try and play behind the lines – and with the quality we have we should do better – but it’s hard when they have men behind the ball.

“We could have won because we missed a lot of chances but we also could have lost because they missed a lot of chances.

“We’re not happy with the draw because we just want to win games but when you see the chances they’ve had, I think we can be happy. A draw is a fair result.”
