Eden Hazard turned to snowballs for target practice at Cobham training ground ahead of Chelsea FC’s trip to Manchester City on Sunday.

The defending Premier League champions will make the long trip to Manchester for the second time over the past week.

Chelsea FC lost 2-1 to second-placed Manchester United last Sunday despite Willian giving the Blues a first-half lead.

Hazard was withdrawn in the 70th minute shortly before England international Jesse Lingard scored a winner with 18 minutes to go.

The Belgian forward struggled to have an impact in their last two games after a 1-1 stalemate with Barcelona and a 2-1 loss to Manchester City.

The 27-year-old has netted 11 times and made three assists in 24 appearances in the Premier League this term.

And Hazard enjoyed some impromptu target practice with Cesar Azpilicueta his victim at Chelsea FC’s training ground amid freezing conditions.

Hazard wrote the following caption on his Instagram page to accompany the above photo:

“Target practice for the strikers, the defence holding firm! Sorry @cesarazpi 🎯 #cfc”

Chelsea FC lost 1-0 to Premier League leaders Manchester City at Stamford Bridge following Kevin De Bruyne’s second-half winner in west London back in September.

The Blues won the Premier League title with two games to spare last season in Antonio Conte’s first campaign in charge last term term.
