Eden Hazard has been a key player for Chelsea this season. However, the speculations surrounding his move away from the club have grown significantly over the past few weeks.
However, this has hardly impacted Hazard’s performances for Chelsea, as he continues to be among the goals and assists for the side.
Chelsea are in the race for a top-4 position, which has grown incredibly intense after Manchester United conceded a shocking 2-1 defeat to Wolves at the Molineux Stadium last night.
With Chelsea and Manchester United set to take on each other at Old Trafford later this month, both the teams cannot afford to drop points.
