Eden Hazard makes confident Chelsea declaration ahead of Liverpool FC clash
The Chelsea forward reiterates that he feels in peak fitness ahead of Saturday's trip to Liverpool FC
Eden Hazard has revealed that he feels in peak fitness ahead of Chelsea’s long trip to Liverpool FC in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
The Belgium international scored 16 times in Chelsea’s title-winning campaign under Antonio Conte before he suffered a serious ankle problem on national team duty at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.
Hazard made his return from his injury setback in September and the 26-year-old has started to produce some world-class form over the past month or so in the Champions League and the Premier League.
The former Lille man scored two goals and made one assist in a 4-0 win against West Brom at The Hawthorns last weekend before he broke the deadlock in Chelsea’s 4-0 victory at Qarabag in the Champions League mid-week.
Hazard will come up against a Liverpool FC defence that conceded three goals in the second half of their Champions League draw with Sevilla in Spain on Tuesday night.
Indeed, the Reds have conceded 17 times in 12 games in the Premier League this season, although Liverpool FC have kept five clean sheets at Anfield this term,.
But Hazard has warned Liverpool FC that he is feeling confident after a return to full fitness and match sharpness.
“I’m feeling good,” Hazard told Chelsea’s website.
“I am 100 per cent. After injury sometimes you are not feeling 100 per cent, but I am ready to play every game.
“Of course when you are winning games it does help. Confidence is high. We are playing well at the moment, we want to keep playing like this and keep winning games.”
