After setting the Premier League on fire with a Sensational Debut. How would you describe Hazard in 1 sentence?

!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);;js.src=”//”;fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,”script”,”twitter-wjs”)Oscar nearly stole the headlines with an impressive touches and silky passes in his late cameo. Had his confident shot on goal entered the net, it could have been difficult to pick between Hazard and Oscar for the man-of -the- match award. The elegant ball-playing midfielder increased the pace of our play with his touches and one-two passes in his debut late cameo but at the end of the day the jury settled on the two times French footballer of the year Eden Hazard as the man of the match.

The 21-year-old Belgian sensation electrified and set the DW Stadium ablaze as he wowed the critics and the rest of the EPL fans alike with a dazzling performance which quickly earned him a great assist in the opening two minutes of the game for the Chelsea’s first EPL 2012-13 goal through Ivanovic. Just after five minutes, Hazard again showed his quality with an incredible pace, tricky and swift feet which again provided us with a decent penalty earning him the second assist according to EPL rules and was banged in the net by Frank Lampard, his 37th penalty goal out of 40. After the match, the legendary EPL midfielder Lampard, showed his admiration of the performance of his new team mate, Hazard through an interview with Sky Sports.

Lampard: “He (Hazard) was brilliant. It’s a young age to come into the Premier League, no matter how good of a player you are. He had the quality he has with the spin and the ball to put Ivanovic through and he showed great speed to get away from his man for the penalty. He was great and is what the fans have been crying to see… it was a great start to the game…”
According to Roberto Di Matteo; “Hazard was outstanding, he produced a lot of quality. He was a big threat and was difficult to mark. He managed to get away from his man and it was very pleasant to watch him today. He combined well with his team-mates. He was exactly what we were looking for. He has got great technical ability, a burst of pace as well to get away from players; he can play with his back to goal. He has a lot of characteristics which he’ll bring to our team.” When Di Matteo was asked if he feared Hazard would be butchered by defenders, he remarked “these kinds of players, they’re difficult to mark; they are good on the ball, they move…I don’t think teams will try to.” 

Hazard himself was delighted with his performance and the performance of the team and after winning the Man-Of-The-Match award he expressed his delight at the performance of his debut League match picking up the MOTM award and the performance of his team as a whole.
For most fans who have followed Hazard from the French league, you will know this is just the beginning of what we are going to see from Hazard. He makes a real difference to any team and some have us who cried his name throughout before he was signed can be vindicated. I believe the critics and all the rival fans who wanted to play down his importance to Chelsea will begin to eat back their word one by one. His telepathy and great understanding he has quickly built up with Mata will continue to threaten every team in the world. The only way he can be dispossessed off the ball was when he was fouled and I believe he needs a real protection from referees since he is always going to be at the receiving end of vicious tackles from EPL defenders. After Hazard was substituted on the 64th minute, he was given a    standing ovation and a rousing applause by the fans.

So Lampard has described Hazard’s performance as “brilliant”, Di Matteo has described it as “outstanding” performance. How would you describe the performance of Hazard in one sentence? Do not forget about the elegant performance of Oscar in his short cameo as a Chelsea player.

    Hazard was sensational. Good start from him brought in the assist and PK. Victor Moses is next in performance as he gradually entered into the game. So unlucky not to have at least an assist, but now we all know why. Torres was next for me and I still don't know why he doesn't take PK's and yet he wants to compete with Europe's top scorers. The others; Oscar, Ivanovic and Lampard did well but the later two helped increase Moses ratings along with Ashley.

    Yes I agree. We're still not playing to Torres' strengths that's why it isn't easy scoring in a Chelsea shit. I didn't see him getting enough through balls like he'd want to but mostly balls where his back is at the goal,meaning he should do all the hard work by turning and dribbling past defenders. I'm not saying he can't do it…it's just not the way he'd like to play. I'm glad you can see past the negative.

    Lol I meant that's why it aint easy scoring in a Chelsea shirt. Not a Chelsea shit.

    Unfortunately, Torres is too lazy to lead the revolution, we need a striker that can score playing with his back facing goal, good shooting and heading. Torres wants to eliminate competition in a big team as Chelsea and such monopoly would lead to sub standard performance from him. We need a striker that can really hit the ball, especially from distance.
