Chelsea star Eden Hazard makes Man City transfer claim after slamming team-mates

CHELSEA star Eden Hazard has claimed Manchester City are only missing him in their side after lamenting his team-mates’ lack of movement.

The Blues take on the Premier League champions at Stamford Bridge tomorrow but have hit a blip in their season.

Chelsea were in fine form under new boss Maurizio Sarri and at one point were the only unbeaten side in Europe’s top five leagues.

But a heavy defeat to Tottenham at Wembley brought the west London outfit back down to earth.

A 2-0 win against Fulham helped put them back on track but a shock 2-1 loss to Wolves on Wednesday has brought them back under the microscope.

One star who was in terrific form at the start of the season was Hazard, but the Belgian has now not scored in the league since early October.

Ahead of the City clash, the Belgian has cheekily suggested that Pep Guardiola could do with him in the squad.

He said: “I think City find more solutions in their play than we do.

“The only thing they don’t have is Eden Hazard! That is the difference.”

Hazard has been a key member of Chelsea’s squad over the past six years, but he hinted he is becoming tired of being the difference-maker this season.

He added: “Chelsea have plenty of possession, but we often have to rely on individual actions to score goals.

“City are all about team play. You can see a lot of movement from them that creates spaces.

“They get their crosses in and they create more chances, score more goals and have more answers.”

The 27-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid this season.

Chelsea have reportedly offered him a mammoth contract of £300,000-a-week but he is ready to wait until the European champions come in with a bigger offer.
