Frank Lampard reveals what Chelsea star Eden Hazard is really like
Frank Lampard opens up about Eden Hazard after his recent good performances for Chelsea
Frank Lampard believes that Eden Hazard is simply focused on playing good football for Chelsea following his strong form for the Blues this season.
The 26-year-old Belgium international was once again impressive as Chelsea came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw against Liverpool FC at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.
Hazard missed the first few games of the season as he continued his recovery from an ankle injury, but the playmaker now seems as if he is hitting top gear for the west London club.
Lampard knows Hazard well, having played alongside the Belgian during the final few years of his career at Chelsea.
And the former England star has delivered a fascinating insight into what Hazard is really like behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge.
Speaking to BT Sport after Saturday’s draw at Anfield, Lampard said of Hazard: “He’s Chelsea’s main man – and it’s great to be the main main at Chelsea. They rely on him.
“I know him personally – he’s not one for the big show. He doesn’t like going out, he’s got three young children and a wife. He’s been settled from a very young age.
“I don’t think he needs all the fanfare. He just wants to play good football.”
Hazard will be expecting to feature for Chelsea when the Blues return to Premier League action on Wednesday night with a home clash against Swansea City at Stamford Bridge.
The west London side are aiming to try and keep themselves in the title race as the hectic festive period in the Premier League looms large.
Chelsea won the title in Antonio Conte’s first season in charge at the club last term.
