Eden Hazard admits that Chelsea are beginning to feel the effects of a gruelling season as the campaign approaches its climax.

The Blues are still competing for the Premier League title and are aiming to book their spot in the Champions League quarter-finals this term.

We need to concentrate on training to work on our recovery and stay focused

Hazard has been one of Chelsea’s standout performers and has already made 39 appearances for the west London side this season.

And the Belgium playmaker has stressed the importance of the Blues squad staying fit as they approach a crucial stage of the season.

“I think the team are tired but it’s normal because we have played a lot of games,” Hazard told the London Evening Standard ahead of Saturday’s trip to Aston Villa.

“Now we need to concentrate on training to work on our recovery and stay focused. I hope at the end we’ll see that we are on top.

“We have a good team of physios and doctors. We don’t train hard every day because it’s difficult to play a game and do training. We want to stay fresh and be 100 per cent.”
