Eden Hazard received lots of accolades due to his impressive performance against The Reds.
Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink also praised the “terrific” Hazard after his superb show in the 1-1 draw at Liverpool. The Belgian’s stunning solo effort put Chelsea ahead after 32 minutes, before Christian Benteke’s injury-time equalizer denied The Blues
all three points. Hiddink says Hazard has improved his physical fitness in recent weeks, and said the midfielder has suffered with a stop-start season.
Hiddink told Sky Sports:
“He was terrific. He’s already some weeks growing also in his physically fitness, which is important for him and nature gives him a lot of skill.
“It’s a matter of being fit and fresh for him, and he’s showing that already in the last few weeks.
“Last year he had a beautiful year, and this year he had to suffer a lot regarding his injury, being back and then getting injured again, and that’s why we made a special programme for him.”
Hiddink says his team should have been home and dry in the second half, with Simon Mignolet denying his side on numerous occasions despite the consistent attacks from the Blues’ strikers.

Belgian left winger, Eden Hazard, is set to continue with his place at Stamford Bridge despite his disappointing season at Chelsea. They player won the won the prestigious PFA Young Player of the Year award in the 2013/2014 season with The Blues before going on to win the very coveted PFA Player of the Year award.
This season the Belgian rising star has experienced a shambolic season and it is testament to how far he has fallen that many Chelsea fans wouldn’t be too sad to see him leave Stamford Bridge. The player’s influence used to be very heavy in games and this helped them lift the English Premier League just last season. This season he doesn’t even have a Premier League goal to his name. He didn’t score in the UEFA Champions League as well until they were knocked out by PSG. So far, he has only two FA cup goals this season and they remain his total goals in all competitions this season for Chelsea.
The talented player signed from French club, LOSC Lille in 2012/2013 season played 5 years of impressive football at the French outfit before his 40 million Euros move to the Bridge. During the last summer, after his performance, Real Madrid and PSG were interested in signing the player but with his current run, they will surely think twice before going ahead with any deal.

The €12.5 million summer signing of Liverpool, Nathaniel Clyne is struggling trying to find a consistent spot in the team of Roy Hodgson and the manager of the English national side said that he will not give Clyne a starting role in his team just because of a good season.
Roy Hodgson prefers using Phil Jones in the right-back position of England and Clyne was restricted to play only a few minutes in England’s latest 2016 Euro’s qualification which was played against Slovenia and ended with England claiming a 3-2 victory.
During England’s match against Slovenia, Phil Jones had to leave the pitch in the 2nd half after picking up an ankle injury and even with this injury, Nathaniel Clyne was not selected.
This decision to utilize Phil Jones is something that has caused debate in the world of football as Phil Jones has been going through a fairly underwhelming season at Old Trafford but he still manages to get selected ahead of other players who have been performing better in recent times.
Roy Hodgson expressed his support towards Manchester United’s Phil Jones as the veteran manager said: ‘’Phil Jones is a top-quality player. We have great faith in him and we are very happy with him. We think Nathaniel Clyne is a very good player but I would be disappointed if anyone thought that on the basis of a good season with their clubs they can walk in and demand a place’’

Chelsea boss José Mourinho says that the English culture of football will probably prevent the world from seeing the best of Eden Hazard.
The Chelsea winger managed to win the PFA and the football writers Player of the Year award. He has had a sensational campaign in which he has contributed almost 30 goals from 44 appearances in all competitions. Mourinho reckons thatHazard is only behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi when it comes to the best player in the world. Messi and Ronaldo have both been scoring lots of goals in the last five years, but Mourinho reckons that this largely because of playing in Spain.
The Spanish league is largely dominated by Real Madrid and Barcelona, who managed to win most matches during a season. It has not been so surprising to see these two teams achieve 100 points over the course of a campaign. Along the way, this domination has also helped Messi and Ronaldo achieve improbable figures when it comes to scoring. Mourinho reckons that it is almost impossible for Hazard reach the same levels when he is playing his football in the English league, which is far more tougher. The Belgian wizard has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich and Madrid in the last few weeks.
