It is only a few weeks ago Eden Hazard was hailed as the best player in the world following a string of fine performances for Chelsea and Belgium that attracted rumors that he is on his way to Real Madrid next summer.
He applied words to the displays on the pitch that suggested he was keen on the move.
The 27-year old’s form in the summer for the Red Devils was that of a topmost player in the world. During the World Cup, Hazard distinguished himself as one of the best players at the tournament alongside Luka Modric and Kylian Mbappe. He continued to shine in the Blues shirt when the Premier League resumed and then injury struck. His form has dipped and now looks off the pace for the top scorer award.
After his seven goals in the first nine games in the English top flight, Hazard has gone on a run of ten games without a goal.
Now, even though he still holds the talismanic mantle at the club, it will be surprising if Los Blancos will press as hard as they would have, had he maintained his form all through the season. Hazard needs to step up and starting from the Wednesday night clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers, Hazard must resume scoring.
