thumbnail Hello,

The 21-year-old is targeting silverware after a highly impressive start to his career in England - with six assists and one goal - but insists there is still room for improvement

New Chelsea signing Eden Hazard has claimed he is happy with his start to life in the Premier League but insists there is still more to come from him as he eyes "two or three" trophies in his first season at Stamford Bridge.

The 32 million pound summer purchase from Lille has shown some scintillating early season form for the Blues - notching six assists and a goal in his first three games for the club - and hopes to continue his impressive start and land some silverware come the end of the season.

“At Chelsea you have to win every game. The objective is win, win, win. This season I think there are seven trophies to play for,” he told The Sun.

“We played the first one against Manchester City in the Community Shield. If we get two or three from the remaining six that will be great. Big clubs, whether it’s Chelsea or Manchester, are formatted to win.”

And the Belgian has been delighted with the way he’s adapted to life in the capital, insisting he is ready to make his own mark on the team.

“I’ve adapted very well to life in London. You’re always a bit overawed when you arrive at a club with so many big names,” he admitted.

“But then you tell yourself ‘They are people like me with two arms and two legs’. Of course, I have respect for the players who are already here but it is down to me to tread my own path.

“I had already changed countries when I went from Belgium to France, so I had made a similar step before.

“The game goes a bit quicker here, the reaction times are maybe a bit shorter, the challenges are stronger and the fans live for football, which is what I needed to feel.”

The former Lille man credits Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo in helping him settle into London life and praised the Italian’s approach to the game.

“Di Matteo’s philosophy is more about playing football than being physical,” he continued.

“We do a lot of ball work and pre-season was not as hard as I thought it would be. I was expecting it to be a lot tougher. But we’re well prepared because we’ve won our first games.

“What I hope for is to keep on enjoying playing and to be decisive like I have been in the first few games.”
