Eden Hazard sends ‘united’ message to Chelsea FC supporters
The Chelsea FC forward reiterates that the Blues squad is united following Monday night's 3-0 win over West Brom
Eden Hazard has reassured Chelsea FC supporters that Antonio Conte’s squad remain united despite a difficult Premier League run.
The Blues ended a two-game losing run on Monday night thanks to Chelsea FC’s 3-0 win against 20th-placed West Brom at Stamford Bridge.
Hazard broke the deadlock in the first half after Olivier Giroud produced a delicate assist to tee up the Belgium international.
Nigerian full-back Victor Moses doubled the home side’s lead before Hazard scored the goal of the night after the forward beat Ben Foster at his near post.
Chelsea FC hoisted themselves back into the Premier League’s top four ahead of Tottenham Hotspur thanks to their morale-boosting win at Stamford Bridge.
Conte has been contending with relentless speculation surrounding his future at the west London club amid talk of Luis Enrique replacing the Italian coach.
However, Hazard has reiterated that everyone at Chelsea FC remain united despite recording just two Premier League victories in 2018 so far.
“Sometimes it happens, you win and sometimes you lose,” Hazard told Sky Sports.
“Last year we were champions. The most important thing is to be together and work together. That’s what we did and [on Monday night] we showed great character. It’s good.”
Chelsea FC will take on Championship side Hull City in the FA Cup fifth round at Stamford Bridge next weekend.
The Blues can move level on points with second-placed Manchester United if the defending champions beat the Red Devils at Old Trafford in their next Premier League game.
