Eden Hazard has warned Chelsea’s Premier League title rivals that they ought to be worried because he is back fit.
The Belgian missed the start of the season after breaking his ankle in May on international duty.
It meant that the Chelsea star missed pre-season as well and has been fighting to get match-fit since his recovery.
But the 26-year-old put in a world-class performance against West Brom, grabbing two goals and an assist in a 4-0 win at the Hawthorns.
And he has revealed that there is more to come.
“I am in good form. Since I came back from the injury I have been feeling good,” he said.
“When you miss football for two months, you just want to be back on the pitch, especially when you watch the players and your team is playing and doing well.
“It’s a bad thing to be injured, but I also think it was a good thing for my body to recover. I have played as a professional for ten years now and I’d never had a big injury like this.
“It was the first time and it gave me two months’ recovery time. I’m feeling good now, the injury is in the past and I can concentrate on the future.
“The players help me a lot on the pitch and give me a lot of balls. I’m just happy with what I, and we, do.”
Manchester City are currently roaring ahead in the Premier League, eight points clear of second-placed Manchester United.
They have gone unbeaten all season in the league, having drawn just once.
The Blues, on the other hand, have had a tougher time in their title defence.
Injuries have struck several key members of the squad and they are third, nine points behind Pep Guardiola’s side.
They face Qarabag in a crucial Champions League tie in Baku tomorrow before a tough away trip to Anfield this weekend.
