Chelsea vs Everton, Premier League

Eden Hazard has been in sparkling form for Chelsea this season

Eden Hazard has been in sparkling form for Chelsea this season

He is being assessed at Cobham but should be fit to begin against Everton on Sunday, albeit with Maurizio Sarri and the club's medical staff monitoring his work-load with nine games scheduled for December. "I guess when I am on the floor I can win free-kicks, so every free-kick with Chelsea is a chance to score more goals".

"I know him and he's not thinking about a move right now", said Thorgan, who is currently on worldwide duty with his brother ahead of Belgium's UEFA Nations League fixtures against Iceland and Switzerland. I'm not happy [about being fouled so often], but it's part of football. So it's very hard to stay close to these teams.

"Hazard can create problems in any moment of the match". I played a lot of games [last season] but this season it hasn't been like that.

There is interest in the Lyon attacker from Bayer Munich too (h/t Sun), and Sarri wanted to know if he would have the first refusal for the player. But I'm really very proud about the record.

Right-back Seamus Coleman is going to need an extra body around him to help defend against in-form Chelsea sensation Eden Hazard.

Chelsea finally threatened when Marco Alonso's free-kick flashed just wide.

I'm happy with this derby. "We played like: "I don't want to lose the ball" but not the intention to attack or to do something". Manchester United's Juan Mata clashes with Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling towards the end of the match.

Everton were hardly tested in the first half at Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea unable to muster a shot on target until Marcos Alonso forced Jordan Pickford into action with a rasping volley.

"It was a tough match". We can't give up on him, else we'll live to regret it - again.

Eden Hazard played following his recovery from a recent injury.

When Hazard slipped a superb pass through to Willian, it seemed certain the Brazilian would break the deadlock, but he sent his shot inches wide.

Running at the Everton defence with abandon, Hazard went close again when his shot deflected off Yerry Mina, forcing Pickford to tip over at full stretch.
