Eden Hazard says he wants to be a 'legend' at Chelsea after 2-1 win vs Watford


Eden Hazard has been simply out of this world for Chelsea in 2018/19.

Under the guidance of Maurizio Sarri, the Belgian superstar has notched 10 goals and recorded nine assists in just 18 Premier League games.

Without him, the Blues would probably not be in the hunt for the top four.

In the 1-0 loss to Leicester last time out, Chelsea noticeably struggled when Hazard was not at the top of his game.

Thankfully against Watford last night, the Belgian was at his fearsome best in the 'false nine' role, scoring both goals in a priceless 2-1 win.

The victory over the Hornets means Chelsea are now two points clear of Arsenal, with the Gunners facing a daunting trip to Liverpool on the weekend as well.

While the title appears out of reach, a return to the Champions League could prove pivotal in Hazard extending his contract at Stamford Bridge.

And the forward seemed to offer an incredibly positive update on his future when speaking after the game.



Hazard says: "101 goals with this amazing club is something I will never forget. Now me, the fans and this club want more. I will try to be a legend like Terry, Drogba and Lampard."

That doesn't sound like a player desperate to ditch Stamford Bridge for Real Madrid anytime soon, so you can understand why Chelsea fans are pretty happy.

Hazard has previously flirted with Los Blancos in previous interviews and it's common knowledge that it is the club he dreams of.

However, in Sarri's attack-minded style and the return of Champions League football beginning to look more likely, Hazard may wish to cement himself as a Chelsea legend rather than leave.

The Blues are already prepared to offer him a huge wage increase and there is also the promise of Sarri adding some new players to help with his workload.
