GETTY Chelsea news Eden Hazard is set to start for the Blues at West Ham

'He had everything, he was the modern midfielder - scoring goals, defending well, tackling.

"It's different and you can see we press very high, the defensive line is very high but that's what we want".

"I think he just lost his confidence, Morata, and he probably needs a run in the side".

"I know Eden, we came here together and I played against him in France so I have seen him for a long time but, yes, I'm sure he can be the best", Azpilicueta told MailOnline.

Ever since joining from Lille in 2012, Hazard has consistently been regarded as one of the Premier League's elite players.

"[Giroud] seems to link up better with Eden Hazard".

Giroud may have yet to open his Chelsea account this term - he did however score what turned out to be the victor for France against Holland earlier this month - but his overall contribution means he's a valuable asset to have. His teammate and World Cup victor Giroud seems to link up better with Hazard.

Hazard reveals who he voted for — FIFA Best Player
Salah received the Puskas award for the best goal, for his effort against Everton in the Premier League at Anfield last December. Though a female has yet to win the award, Irish professional Stephanie Roche was shortlisted to the top three in 2014 .

Nevertheless, picking Hazard, stating that he believes he's better than Neymar and could emerge as the best player in Europe this season by hitting the 40-goal target set by his boss Maurizio Sarri, it's certainly an article that is going to get people talking.

But Giroud got his chance against Cardiff and Hazard made no secret of his admiration for his teammate, after the Frenchman laid on two goals for him.

Salah is coming off the back of a season in which he bagged 44 goals and 16 assists in 52 games in his first year with Liverpool, although ultimately it didn't result in trophies for the Merseyside giants.

Gary Cahill is now Chelsea's official skipper but the defender has yet to make an appearance for Sarri this season. The Spaniard deliver 15 goals last season, but struggled for consistency and has been unable to rediscover his spark.

With the Blues, he has completed a clean sweep of the three major domestic trophies - the Premier League, the FA Cup and the EFL Cup - as well as the Europa League.

That effectiveness eventually wore off, in part due to the tactical response of opposition managers, but also because of the two players' respective limitations.

Chelsea have kicked off the new season in a great way.
