Eden Hazard expects to do 'something great' with Gonzalo Higuain

Maurizio Sarri needs to be given time to implement his philosophy at Chelsea according to Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink

Paper Round's view: As David de Gea has shown at United, having a good relationship with a club sometimes aids a contract renewal when it might make more sense to leave.

Hazard has netted 12 times in the Premier League this season, a tally which is just four short of his best ever return for the Blues - he scored 16 goals in the 2016-17 campaign.

While Sarri is ambiguous over what he expects from Hazard over a potential new contract, former teammate Cesc Fabregas is more confident.

"He is already 28 years old and this would be the flawless moment to leave, it would be a very personal decision though".

"He's never going to fight Chelsea to go, it's a big club and he's won everything in England".

'I've only played two games with Higuain and I know we can do something great together, not only with him but also with the other strikers, the other winger.

"Let's see what he decides to do".


Despite the boost of Higuain's arrival, Chelsea suffered a frustrating January with successive Premier League defeats. "But in the end they are very personal decisions".

He has always said that he has dreamt about playing for the Spanish giants and when Zidane, his favourite player, was the manager of Los Blancos, it looked like there was nothing to stop him from moving to Bernabeu.

Kovacic joined Chelsea on a season-long loan to soften the blow of Courtois moving to Madrid for £35m.

'Chelsea is not about Higuain and Hazard, it is about 25 players. "The way I am can be a weakness to be the best player in the world", he said. "I still believe that", he said.

"Frankly, I don't know what Eden will do", Fabregas told Cadena SER.

"When you look at what he's done in the short space of time that he's been there".

The 60-year-old Italian has lavished praise on Hazard, declaring him Europe's best player on Friday, but does not feel a player who captains his country is a leader.
