Chelsea star, Eden Hazard has expressed his delight in the partnership he has formed with his teammate Alvaro Morata. Both players have been amongst the goals recently with the most recent coming in their 3-1 defeat of Newcastle United. The Belgian scored twice while Morata netted the other as The Blues made light work of their opponents at Stamford Bridge.
Speaking after the match he said;
“We are working in training, because the manager wants us to do tactics, defensively and also offensive. So we are trying to find each other every time, I know where he is. We’ve only played together for two or three months but he’s clever.”
Chelsea Manager, Antonio Conte has in recent matches switched formation to a 3-5-2 system with Hazard playing just off the main striker (Morata). On the new system Hazard continued;
“It’s different from last season. Last season I was playing more on the left wing and now with Alvaro we try to have this link together. I drop more than him, I can go deep, but we have a good relationship on the pitch, with Cesc (Fabregas) also and Danny (Drinkwater), so we are just happy to play together.”
With his brace against Newcastle, the Belgian international has now had a hand in 11 goals in his last 10 matches in all competitions, scoring 8 goals and registering 3 assists.
