Eden Hazard has not travelled for Chelsea's Europa League clash at PAOK on Thursday, the Blues have announced.

Chelsea did not have a particularly taxing start to their 2009/10 campaign as they faced two teams who would be relegated at the end of the season in Hull and Burnley.

Chelsea, who were without Eden Hazard, took 25 minutes to even register a shot and seldom threatened and it was no surprise when Aguero added a second from a Bernardo Silva pass just before the hour after having just spurned a clearer chance.

The 2018/19 Premier League Season has begun with a bang for two clubs, Chelsea and Liverpool.

The former Napoli manager also expressed his delights with the performance of Olivier Giroud in the last Premier League game against Cardiff City.

Liverpool showed their credentials in targeting a first title since 1990, and such was the Reds' dominance in their 2-1 win at Tottenham, the scoreline did not do Jurgen Klopp's men justice.

"It's nearly impossible to be more pleased with him (Silva) as a manager", said Guardiola.


Jose Mourinho was relaxed and contented after Manchester United held on to beat Watford 2-1 on Saturday - a million miles away from his spikiness of recent weeks.

Hazard's best return for an individual season is 16 goals after the Belgium worldwide fired Conte's side to the Premier League title in 2016-17.

"Me as a defender thinks 'can I get at him? We've got to have a good look at ourselves and go again", he said. I predominantly write about Football, Wrestling and MMA.

"He's a low-maintenance footballer, I think, Chelsea have done really well to hang onto him for the past couple of years", he said.

West Ham United manager Manuel Pellegrini is facing a selection headache for Sunday's Premier League game against leaders Chelsea as Marko Arnautovic could be ruled out with a knee problem.

"I do think he's capable of [of scoring 40 goals]", Minto told Love Sport Radio.

"Tomorrow I have to change four, five players, but it's impossible in this moment of a season to change 11 players for a match".
