Eden Hazard's comments after Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal will raise eyebrows

Eden Hazard could be a frightening prospect under the leadership of Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea.

The Belgian is yet to start a game under the new manager after his exploits at the World Cup, but he's made a huge impact in his two substitute appearances.

Hazard has played just 43 minutes of Premier League football under the Italian, but has managed two assists and looked like a real menace.

His cameo in the 3-2 win over Arsenal on Saturday was just jaw-dropping, turning the game in the favour of the Blues and setting up Marcos Alonso's winner.

He's got a serious case to be labelled the best player in the Premier League, with Kevin de Bruyne, Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane the only players who can really test that claim.

It was no surprise to see Hazard heavily linked with Real Madrid throughout the summer, a club that certainly does appeal to the Belgian superstar.

It seems like he's staying put at Chelsea for the time being, however, his quotes after the Arsenal game will raise a few eyebrows.

Speaking after the win, Hazard said: “Everybody knows what I have said after the World Cup.

“But I’m happy here. I don’t want to talk about it yet. A lot has been said, but at the moment I’m happy. I have two years left on my contract and we’ll see what happens. Leaving this year? I won’t go.”

Not the most convincing of quotes from Chelsea's talisman.

And Belgian football expert Kristof Terruer tweeted another comment from Hazard which again, will do little to prevent Chelsea fans from worrying about his potential exit.

Hazard said: “We have seen today that the fans quite like me. I’m good where I am. Let’s see what happens in one or two years.”

The Belgian has two years left on his Chelsea contract and he seems in no rush to renew.

If the situation is the same in a year's time, things will start to get very interesting.
