Eden Hazard has been in sparkling form for Chelsea this season

Hazard has won two Premier League titles, the Europa League, the FA Cup and the League Cup since his move to Chelsea FC from Lille in 2012. "I am feeling the wear and tear".

Everton did well to restrict space for the hosts, with Jorginho particularly ineffective, and Marco Silva revealed that stopping Chelsea as a team, and not just focusing on Hazard, was the crucial factor in claiming a share of the spoils.

Andre Gomes, who arrived on a season-long loan from the Catalan giants, has started his career wit with the Merseyside outfit in fine form and continued to show his ability in the game against Chelsea.

Walker says that Sarri is not used to such a packed schedule with no winter break and he is keen for the Chelsea boss to use the current worldwide break to organise for what is to come.

The report adds that Sarri spoke with the World Cup victor about his extensive role at Chelsea and about what the future holds for the Frenchman at the club.

Free agent Samir Nasri set to join West Ham United
After the global break, West Ham entertain Nasri's former club and current league leaders Manchester City at the London Stadium. But the former France global has encountered a troubled career since, having been banned for 18 months by UEFA for doping .

He added: "It was the plan to miss the Salonika game. I was motivated to know we were facing Chelsea and it was a great game - for me, it was really important to play 90 minutes". While there have been more fouls on Wilfried Zaha (32), Will Hughes and James Maddison (both 29), that trio have all played considerably more minutes than Hazard's 693 in the top flight. He shrugged off the Italian's touchline reaction. We are working a lot in training on the free-kicks.

Hazard has been continuously linked with a switch to Real Madrid and it is understood a deal to go the Bernabeu in the summer collapsed.

He did not discuss his future on this occasion, looking only at the opportunities for Chelsea.

So far the Blues are unbeaten in 18 straight matches in all tournaments. Chelsea should be a Champions League club.

Jordan's performance is good news for England and good news for us.

There is interest in the Lyon attacker from Bayer Munich too (h/t Sun), and Sarri wanted to know if he would have the first refusal for the player.
