Chelsea ace Eden Hazard has made his want for more game time clear following his match-winning role off the bench in Chelsea’s 3-2 win against Arsenal yesterday afternoon.
This is according to The Sun, who state that the Belgian isn’t happy with the current situation surrounding his playing time.
As per the Sun, Hazard said “It is better to be on the pitch than the bench. I think he’s the kind of manager who wants to have control on the ball. I just want to play and have the ball at my feet”
The Belgian superstar was subbed on just after the hour mark against Arsenal and proved to be the decisive factor in Chelsea’s victory.
In the 81st minute after skipping past Hector Bellerin and Alexandre Lacazette, Hazard found Alonso in the penalty area who stroked the ball through Petr Cech’s legs, a goal that ended up proving to be the winner come full time.
Hazard also praised Sarri’s attacking style of play after the game in his post-match interview:
"He's the kind of manager who wants control of the ball. He's a great manager."
Eden Hazard is full of praise for the attacking style of play Maurizio Sarri has already introduced to Chelsea.
