Eden Hazard wins Belgian footballer of the year

  Eden Hazard wins Belgian footballer of the year Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has been announced as the ‘best Belgian footballer playing abroad in 2017’. Former winner Thibaut Courtois surprised his countryman at Stamford Bridge with the award for the winger. Goals and Assists were something very frequent for Hazard towards the back end of last season, resulting in him winning this award. Hazard has been playing well for Belgium of late and his from for club and country has picked up just in time for the World Cup. When asked about playing for his country he said: “I’m aiming to win the World Cup or the European Championships with Belgium.” He was the scorer of a consolation goal in Chelsea’s 4-1 defeat away to Watford on Monday evening and leaves Chelsea in fourth, battling to finish in the top four. With a fairly easy game at home to West Brom up next for the blues, they will want to forget the Watford result and try and pick up three points against the baggies.

Chelsea secured a well earned 3-0 win over West Brom on Monday night. Chelsea player ratings : Courtois 7; Azpilicueta 8, Christensen 8, Rudiger 7; Moses 7, Kante 8, Fabregas 7, Zappacosta 6; Pedro 7, Hazard 9, Giroud 7.

Chelsea claimed a much needed victory in the Premier League as they beat West Brom 3-0 at Stamford Bridge.

A brace from Eden Hazard and second-half strike by Victor Moses was enough to keep the three points in West London.

The victory brings Antonio Conte’s side back into the top four at the expense of Tottenham following two loses in recent weeks to Bournemouth and Watford.

It was a comfortable night for the Blues who took control once Hazard gave the hosts a deserved lead in the first-half.

The Baggies struggled to live with the brilliant Hazard for large parts and it was a struggle for them to keep pace with the Premier League champions, although they’ll look back on two glorious chances that went begging when the game was still in the balance.

Conte: I'm a disaster in the transfer market

  Conte: I'm a disaster in the transfer market Antonio Conte still feels he has a lot to learn in his approach to asking Chelsea's hierarchy for players in the transfer market.Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte labelled himself "a bit of a disaster" in his approach when it comes to convincing the club to sign players.

Chelsea recorded a much-needed 3-0 victory over West Brom as an Eden Hazard brace, sandwiched in between a rare Victor Moses goal, earned all three points for the Blues.

West Brom reportedly reignite interest in Okay Yokuslu .
West Brom were heavily linked with a move for Okay Yokuslu in the summer and it seems they are prepared to reignite their interest. According to a report from the printed edition of Turkish news outlet HaberTurk, as covered by Sport Witness, the Baggies remain keen on securing Yokuslu’s services in the near future. It’s stated that Trabzonspor, despite holding the midfielder in high esteem at the club, could be willing to offload Yokuslu in the summer, as well. They are already well stocked with options in the centre and with the 23-year-old’s stock continuing to rise, they may well look to receive a considerable sum from his sale. According to the report, West Brom are ready to test the water with an €8m bid in the summer. This, somewhat bizarrely, is the same amount that they are claimed to have previously offered when they went in their initial pursuit of Yokuslu. The promising midfielder is an established Turkish international midfielder and if he is to leave Trabzonspor at the end of the season, it’s likely that he’ll have plenty of potential suitors to choose from.
