Eden Hazard has said that Chelsea want to continue playing in the way they played today against Huddersfield – the way that Maurizio Sarri wants the team to play.
It has been a topsy-turvy few weeks for Chelsea, who have dropped a boatload of points, including in the 4-0 humiliation at the hands of Bournemouth on Wednesday night.
They got back to winning ways at Stamford Bridge against relegation fodder Huddersfield Town, beating the West Yorkshire side 5-0, with goals coming from Gonzalo Higuain (2), Eden Hazard (2) and David Luiz.
Speaking after the game, Belgian playmaker Hazard said it was one of the best performances of the season.
“I always say when we lose a game, we need to win the game after and we did well today. We played one of the best games of our season and scored five great goals,” Hazard told the BBC.
“The fans were not happy on Wednesday and now they are so we are happy. We want to keep playing like this – like the manager wants.
“I think he (Sarri) will be happy, because he was wanting a reaction from us and we gave him one.”
Having made his Premier League debut against Bournemouth, Hazard said that he can see the quality that new Chelsea number 9 Gonzalo Higuain brings to the Blues.
“We try to work with each other, Higuain is a new player but he knows what the manager wants. He is a great striker and he can score a lot of goals. England is different than Italy and Spain but he has that ability. If Giroud or I play as striker we always try and help each other.”
Chelsea travel to Manchester next week to face reigning Champions Man City, and Hazard can’t see a reason why they can’t get a result against the title challengers once again having beaten them 2-0 in December.
“After this game our confidence is better than two days ago but we play the champions so we know it will be difficult. We beat them at Stamford Bridge so why not again?”
