Former England international, Glenn Hoddle suggests that Eden Hazard’s form this season has been so poor because he is unhappy at Stamford Bridge. The former manager disclosed this while talking to BT Sports after Chelsea played out a goalless draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford. Hoddle believes the Belgian gave another below par display at Old Trafford because the 24-year old is unhappy at Chelsea.
Guus Hiddink chose to use Hazard in the striker role on Monday night as Chelsea were without the trio of Diego Costa, Radamel Falcao and Loic Remy. Hazard didn’t impress as he once again failed to break his goal jinx. Hazard have not scored in his last 26 matches and also have not supplied an assist in his last 11 league matches.
Glenn Hoddle said about the reigning footballer of the year, “I don’t know if he is 100percent happy at Chelsea, his problems seems to be in his head.”
Hazard recently recovered from a hip injury and was a second half substitute in the 2-2 draw with Watford on boxing day. He was however restored to the starting eleven on Monday night but once again failed to impress.
Hazard has been largely criticised for his performances this season and the player has also shown signs of frustration at the team’s decline in fortune. In the 30th minute of Chelsea’s match against Leicester, Hazard went down under a heavy challenge from Jamie Vardy and subsequently limped off, the manager obviously wanted him to play on, but he dismissed his manager with a curt waft of the hand, showing his frustrations.
Hazard who scored 14 league goals last season is yet to score a single goal this season and has a miserly 3 assists to his name in all competitions so far.
