Chelsea’s Eden Hazard has lavished praise on team-mate N’Golo Kante suggesting that the France international plays with a “twin” in view of the simplicity of which he covers the pitch during matches.
Kante has been a super hit for the Blues since he joined from Leicester City in the summer transfer as he is to a great extent in charge of why Antonio Conte’s men are leading the EPL table.
It was Kante’s block attempt which was the catalyst for the move which Hazard finished for Chelsea’s opening goal in Monday night’s 2-1 win over Bilic’s led side.
Chelsea reestablished their 10-point lead at the highest point of the Premier League, with Kante on course for a second progressive title with two clubs after leaving last season EPL champions for Stamford Bridge.
The Frenchman was again getting it done on Monday night as Chelsea vanquished West Ham United 2-1 courtesy of Eden Hazard and Diego Costa’s goal.however, the attention again was on Kante who pursued down his own particular pass and retrieve the ball during the game.
Eden who helps in wonder to remember the energetic France midfielder revealed to Chelsea TV:
“I don’t need to say something about N’Golo. Everyone knows about him. He’s everywhere.
“I think sometimes when I’m on the pitch I see him twice, one on the left, one on the right. I think he plays with a twin.
“He’s a fantastic player, he helps the team a lot.”
Hazard’s 10th goal of the season was followed by Diego Costa’s 17th and, although Manuel Lanzini scored in added time, it was a deserved win for Chelsea.
Hazard insists the title is not on the minds of the Chelsea players.
He added: “We don’t think about the title. We will think about the title when we’ve got the title.
“We have 11 games to play. We will be ready for the 11.”
Belgium playmaker Hazard says Chelsea felt the need to reopen their commanding advantage over their opponents when playing in the final fixture after a weekend which saw their rivals win.
Hazard added: “(It was a) big win because Man City won, Liverpool won, Tottenham won. We had to win also.
“It’s also on the mind that the opponents win games, so if we want to keep the same gap we need to win also. It’s motivation.
“We did well, we created a couple of chances and could’ve scored more goals in the first half.
“At the end, we won the game, so that’s the most important thing.
“In this kind of stadium you want to shine. We did well.”
