There’d been no goals since the start of October, also concerns over his fitness and speculation within his future – however unusually Eden Hazard is arguably with his very best season in a Chelsea shirt.

The 27-year-old came to Sunday’s match at Brighton having not found the net in nine games, however contrary to the Seagulls he stopped that run and fulfilled his own’fictitious nine’ role to a T by creating Pedro for its opener before scoring himself.

The reports will sabotage his goal and assist in the 2-1 triumph, however maybe they should underline the very fact he’s now been engaged in more Premier League goals this season (17 in 16 appearances) than he had in the whole of last season (16 in 34 appearances).

The Belgian has also provided assists in league rivalry.

Hazard at Chelsea – greater than ever?

Former Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas said earlier this season that Hazard had been not at exactly the identical league since Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo.

That was – should these statistics change his ruling?

Well, at the time of composing (in most golf contests ):

  • Messi has scored 20 goals and provided 1-2 assists from 1 9 games
  • Ronaldo has 12 goals and seven assists from 2 1 appearances
  • Hazard has scored eight goals and created eight assists from 1 9 games

Huddersfield dispossessed

David Wagner

How do you control ownership for threequarters of a football match and lose it?

Huddersfield had 73.6percent of ownership at the 1-0 home defeat by Newcastle on Saturday – the maximum percentage of any side to eliminate a Premier League match this season.

Perhaps David Wagner’s side should look to Leicester’s 201516 title winners, that laughed in the face of ownership by winning the title with 44.8%.

Liverpool, basking in the after glow of beating archrivals Manchester United, hold the’Premier League team with the maximum ownership but wind up losing’ title having had 80.38percent of ownership inside their 2-0 defeat at Burnley at August 20-16.

Off-target Burnley continue to endure

Discussing of this Clarets, this smile at the conclusion of last season – if they ended seventh – has now disappeared.

Having let in only 3 9 goals throughout the entire 201718 premierleague effort, they have already conceded 33 days. They have handled just four so much better and handled 12 clean sheets last season.

Coupled with the truth that they do not need the most potent attack in the league and you’ve got a recipe for…

During the 1-0 defeat by Tottenham, they neglected to register one shot target. This had been the third time they’d achieved this distinction this season – no additional Premier League side has been doing so over and over again.

It will come as no shock that they hold the fewest shots on target’s honour by an English top flight team this season.

After spending nearly £90m at the summer, Everton fans should discount their eighth position inside the table and the truth that they have Tottenham, that did not spend a cent.

Any particular one goal scored against Manchester City at Saturday’s 3-1 defeat supposed that the Toffees have now scored more in the league against the Citizens than some one of their rivals, since manager Pep Guardiola chose the Etihad hotseat at 20-16.

That’s like a title, is it not fans?
