Eden Hazard had no fear about becoming a target for English football's hatchet men following his dream Barclays Premier League debut for Chelsea.

Hazard made a stunning start to life in England's top division on Sunday with two assists in the first seven minutes of the European champions' 2-0 win at Wigan.

The Latics immediately resorted to desperate measures to stop the £32million man, with captain Gary Caldwell booked for a late challenge on him just four minutes later.

But Belgium star Hazard shrugged off his treatment afterwards, insisting it was no worse than he had suffered playing for Lille or against Manchester City in last weekend's Community Shield. And he said: "I already had a taste of these kind of tackles in the Community Shield."
