In recent weeks the form of Eden Hazard has been simply superb.
The young Belgian has started to show, once again, just what he brings to the table.
Last night, against Spurs, there were times when his skills mesmerized the Spurs defence with their players not sure what to do when he had the ball and was preparing to run at them.
At times, to me, he looks like a young Joe Cole the way he moves the ball, but operating at a faster speed therefore making it all the more difficult to tackle / challenge him properly.
His low centre of gravity enables him to bedazzle defenders and create opportunities for others.
Therefore, watching him limp out of the game with what is being reported as a recurrence of his calf injury; fills me with dread.
If that valued top four place, in the Premier League, is to be secured and if we are to claim the Europa League trophy, next Wednesday evening, we`ll have a far better chance of doing so with a fit Eden Hazard in the side.
Let`s hope the recurrence of the injury is nothing serious and that his substitution was merely precautionary.
