"I'm 27 now and I'm starting to get old, so I have to take more care of my body", Hazard said. "I don't think so, but at this moment the average of points of City, Liverpool is very high".

Gana told evertontv: "Yes, of course, the training is changing, we train hard and you can see it in the way we play: we try to play football". I don't think so [leaving in January]'.

Only Zaha (229 in 6,476 minutes) has been fouled more than Hazard's 211 in 6,127 minutes in the Premier League stretching back to 2016, with the Belgian echoing the Crystal Palace winger's recent call for referees to clamp down on teams sharing culpability for the offences and potentially avoiding punishment.

Accordingly, the Italian football specialist has broken the record for longest unbeaten run from the beginning of a managerial career in the Premier League, with 12 unbeaten games.

Chelsea's Olivier Giroud has spent a bit of time on the bench this season but his manager Maurizio Sarri might want to keep him more busy, or risk losing him to another profession. I am very happy with this club, with the team, my family is happy here.

"In the second half we played at another speed, at another intensity, so I don't think it's a physical problem. In the last three matches, you are right".


Hazard returned to the starting line-up in Thursday night's Europa League win at BATE Borisov, featuring for 62 minutes, but he may not play a full 90 minutes until after the forthcoming worldwide break.

Hazard added: "I will do better next time".

Hazard has previously spoken of his daily quandary over his future, whether to extend his Chelsea contract which expires in June 2020, or seek a "dream" move to Real Madrid. I have to say thank you to my players and my staff.

So far the Blues are unbeaten in 18 straight matches in all tournaments.

Everton's only loss in in its last seven games has come at Manchester United. Sunday is an important game. As I said to my players, we created too few goal opportunities in relation to how much we played.
