Eden Hazard has been the primary creative drive force behind Chelsea for quite a few years now, and it’s essential for him to connect with the main striker of the team and according to the Belgian, it hasn’t taken much time for him to build a good understanding with Alvaro Morata.
Last season, Diego Costa was imperious in front of goal and connected seamlessly with the left-winger on multiple occasions. His departure could’ve had strong repercussions had Morata not adjusted so brilliantly.
Eden Hazard has praised the young number 9, saying how well he’s adjusted to life in London.
“He’s a top striker,” Hazard told Chelsea’s newsletter, as quoted by Football.London.
“When good players play together, they don’t need to train two years. When we are on the pitch, we can see the movements he does and his technical ability is good so, with Alvaro – and, before, with Diego as well – it’s good.”
The Belgian also spoke about the importance of the relationship between him and the main target man of the team.
“I try to have a good connection with my striker because, in my position, it’s good to have this player who is like a target man, so I need a good connection with him,” Hazard noted.
The duo has combined to produce just a single goal up to this point – Hazard’s assist to Morata against Atletico Madrid – but going by how optimistic Hazard is, the best is most surely yet to come.
