Eden Hazard Blames Milner for His Average Performance

Eden Hazard had pulled one of the best individual performances in our 1-0 win in Manchester last season. Yesterday again, the Belgian wizard played his part in the 1-1 draw by assisting Schurrle to the first goal of the match.

Eden Hazard Blames Milner for His Average Performance

Eden Hazard was fouled by Argentinean Pablo Zabaleta (who eventually went ahead to collect a red card thanks to the fouls he was trying to commit in the whole match), and he was then heavily involved in setting up a goal by Andre Schurrle.

Despite taking the lead, we couldn’t hold on for the three points, and Hazard noted one difference from the corresponding match in 2013/14.

‘Last year we played the perfect match,’ he said. ‘This year [James] Milner defended more on the right-hand side. That made it more difficult for me to attack.

‘Having said that I thought we played well. It’s never easy to play at City. The first half was complicated; we didn’t have much time on the ball.

‘We defended well though and then we scored another good team goal, which we have been doing a lot this season. We need to continue like that and keep working hard.

‘We stay first in the league, too. Five matches played: four wins and a draw – it’s not a bad start.’

‘It was a nice counter-attack. I played the ball across from the right to Fabregas. Then it went to Iva and then Diego Costa who found me again. I centred it and Andre was in the right place to score.

‘We have many class players here and you don’t have to explain football to them. We understand each other well on the pitch and the goal showed that.’
