Hazard: “I will try to score in the next game”

Eden Hazard already has his sights set on the next game following Chelsea’s shock 1-0 home defeat to Leicester City on Saturday

Jamie Vardy’s 51st-minute goal proved to be the difference as Chelsea fell to their first home defeat of the season and their third in six league games.

During the match, both Hazard and Marcos Alonso did the bar as Chelsea were unable to convert their dominance into goals at Stamford Bridge.

“I think I can do better but that is football, sometimes yes, sometimes not,” Hazard told the club website. “I will try to score in the next game.

“We just missed the shot on the goal, that is it. We hit the woodwork twice, their goalkeeper made some great saves, we were unlucky, but I keep the positives in our heads and now we move forward and try to win game after game.”

While unsurprised over Leicester’s win given the competitive nature of the English top-flight, the Belgian is now looking for a response from his teammates.

The Liverpool footballer hinted he wants to extend his Reds stay, but doesn't know what will the club decide.

“We knew it before that in the Premier League there is no easy game,” Hazard said. Every game is hard and when you are unlucky you can lose.

“They [Leicester] have the players. Vardy scored and he is a fantastic striker, their goalkeeper is a fantastic goalkeeper so they know what to do.

“We should do better but at the end they have three points and we have zero. We just need to look forward.

“We lost against Wolverhampton and we responded in a good way [by beating Man City] so we know what to do.”

Chelsea will next travel to Watford for a Boxing Day match.
