Eden Hazard has insisted that he’s more focused on Chelsea winning many games rather than on his personal records with the club.
Hazard provided an assist for Pedro and scored the second goal in Chelsea’s 2:1 win against Brighton in the Premier League at the Amex on Sunday.
The Belgian has now contributed a combined 17 goals and assists to Chelsea’s quest in the Premier League this term. He contributed a combined 16 in 34 games last season.
Hazard now has 98 goals for Chelsea but he revealed that’s he focused on the team’s progress rather than on the records he could set for himself at Stamford Bridge.
When questioned on if he had any special celebration for his 100th Chelsea goal, Hazard replied: “I don’t know!”
“I know it’s close to 100 goals for Chelsea, but that’s not in my mind, I just want to win games for Chelsea, that’s important.”
The Belgian appeared to pick a knock in the course of the game but dismissed the severity of the knock.
“I think it’s not too bad, I’ll chat with the doctor, but not too bad,” Hazard told Chelsea TV.
“I just twisted it a bit.
“It’s a long season. We want to close the gap with the teams above us so we need to win games, and step by step try to be the best team in England.
“I always enjoy my football. We have good players in the team, we understand each other more now than we did at the beginning of the season, so we just want to be on the pitch and create something.”
