Your Thursday needs these Eden Hazard highlights against Derby County

New, comments

Has Thursday got you down? Do you not know what to do with yourself on what's generally the worst day of the week? If so, I have the perfect remedy for you: Eden Hazard highlights!

No, no it's ok. It's the least I could do. You're very welcome.

There's a good argument to be made that this season has been Eden Hazard's best so far in a Chelsea shirt. With 9 goals in 24 games, he's on pace to break 20 for the second time in his career and the first time for Chelsea (and he would be on 10 already, were it not for the highly uncharacteristic penalty kick miss against NK Maribor). His 4 primary assists (I haven't tallied secondary ones yet) aren't earth-shattering, but they should get him to double digits by the end of the season just like last year. And those numbers don't even represent the strongest side of his game and the one where he makes the greatest impact.

Hazard's totals in take-ons (9th best in Europe's top five leagues, not including Continental or Cup competitions), fouls drawn (7th most in the Premier League), and tongues left wagging don't make for the biggest headlines, but they play a crucial role in creating a balanced Chelsea side. And hopefully this isn't even his final form!
