Hazard: When Chelsea fight together we are a top team

Chelsea recovered from their shock home loss against Leicester last weekend by beating Watford 2-1 tonight at Vicarage Road.

A double from Blues talisman Eden Hazard was enough to seal the three points for Maurizio Sarri’s side.

Hazard became just the tenth player in Chelsea history to score 100 goals for the club and speaking afterward the Belgium international praised his sides ability to bounce back from the disappointment of last weekend.

“It means a lot, especially because we won today. 101 goals with this amazing club is something I will never forget but now the fans, staff and players want more. I want to score more for this club and then try to be a legend like Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba and John Terry.” Hazard told Sky Sports.

Hazard joked that he can also play at centre-back after he was asked about his new role as a central striker.

“I can even play at centre back. My target is to score goals and to try and win the game, as a winger or a striker. I missed a couple of chances today, especially in the first half, but I scored two so it’s important to keep focus.

“We showed great character against Man City after defeat by Wolves, and today we did the same thing after a defeat to Leicester. When we fight together we are a top team.”
