Hazard: I think about titles - not hat-tricks

Comments()
The Blues forward is happy not to be the centre of attention for his team, as long as they win, as they compete on two fronts this season.

Eden Hazard says he would be happy if he ended the season with zero goals, as long as he lifts a trophy with Chelsea. 

Hazard doesn't want Chelsea captaincy

The Blues forward was recently compared to Lionel Messi by his team-mate Cesc Fabregas, who called on him to be more selfish in front of goal. 

The 26-year-old has 14 goals and five assists for his club in the Premier League this season and he looks set to beat his career best. However, ahead of facing Southampton on Tuesday, Hazard said he doesn't have an obsession with scoring more goals. 

"I don't count how many goals I score, to be fair, but I know because a lot of people talk about that," Hazard told the Chelsea matchday programme. "I just want to win games - if we won 38 games but I scored zero goals I would be happy. 

"I am not on the pitch thinking to score hat-trick, hat-trick, hat-trick - this is not me. I try to be the best in my style of play and if I can score then it's good; if I score the winning goals it's better. 

"I think this is going to be a good game - on nights like this the fans are amazing, so I am looking forward to it. All the fans are reaching for the trophy and we want to reach to it too. We have six games to play and we will do a great job."
