Eden Hazard admits he’s aware that Jose Mourinho could use another special tactic to stop him in Chelsea’s clash with Manchester United on Sunday.
When the two sides met in April, the Belgian was effectively frozen out of the game due to a diligent man-marking display by Ander Herrera, which allowed United to run out 2-0 winners.
Ahead of Sunday’s clash at Stamford Bridge, Hazard has been in excellent form but the 26-year-old is aware that Mourinho is likely to have another plan for him.
‘I don’t know, depends on the strategy that they can have, I remember last year at Old Traffor, maybe yes,’ Hazard told Sky Sports.
‘But if that happens I need to find a solution to shine. That’s my reason.
‘Last year at Old Trafford we didn’t find [a solution].
‘So I hope on Sunday we can find something good, not just me but the eleven players on the pitch to win this game.’
Asked if he is already thinking about Mourinho’s strategy to stop him, Hazard replied: ‘I’ll just react on the pitch in the moment.
‘Because you never know the strategy before the game.
‘So when you are focused on the game you are thinking about scoring goals or creating a chance, you see what happens.’
