Eden Hazard has told Chelsea fans that he is now fully fit and ready to help the Blues challenge for major honours this season.

The 26-year-old missed the first few games of the new season after suffering an ankle injury on duty with Belgium at the start of the summer and requiring surgery to correct the problem.

Hazard has been back to his best in recent games and he was named as the man of the match as he scored the winner in Chelsea’s 1-0 victory over Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.

And the playmaker has now revealed that he is ready for a regular run in the first team with Chelsea as the hectic festive schedule looms large.

Hazard told BT Sport after Saturday’s game: “Yeah for sure, definitely [I’m fully fit].

“I’m training hard, the injury is the past. I’m fully ready for the next game, I just want to play.”

Chelsea return to Champions League action on Tuesday night with a crunch clash against Roma in Italy.

The Blues will then switch their attentions back to their crunch Premier League clash against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge next weekend.

Chelsea are currently in fourth place in the Premier League table and nine points behind leaders Manchester City after 10 games of the new season.

The west Londoners are aiming to defend their title after winning the trophy under Antonio Conte last season.
