Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has revealed his verdict on playing as the number nine striker in the 2-0 win over Manchester City on Saturday evening.
Blues boss Maurizio Sarri has opted to leave Olivier Giroud on the bench while Spanish striker Alvaro Morata was completely omitted from the squad.
However, Hazard impressed the manager and the Belgium international claimed that he was happy as the centre-forward against Man City.
“I like it, because I played it last year also, so I know what to do, but the feeling is a bit strange because you don’t touch the ball a lot,” he said.
“You just need to focus on what you need to do and I tried to do my best, we won and that is what is important.”
Hazard added: “We just want to win games and now this one has finished, we can enjoy the win. But we need to be focused for the game on Thursday and next week at Brighton.”
Meanwhile, Sarri has also confirmed he will be using the Belgium captain in the same position in future games.
“He had some problems at the beginning of the match, but I think he played really a very great second half,” Sarri revealed.
“Maybe he deserved to score. I think it’s a very good option. We will play like today in the future for some matches of course.”
Chelsea, who are currently on the fourth position in the league table, will be back in Premier League action on Sunday afternoon as they will take on Brighton at Falmer Stadium.
