Hazard has enjoyed an excellent start to life under new Blues boss Maurizio Sarri.

Everton manager Marco Silva has showered plenty of praise on duo Yerry Mina and Jordan Pickford after the 0-0 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Pickford also kept Chelsea at bay after the interval, denying Alvaro Morata after the striker had been found by Hazard.

Accordingly, the Italian football specialist has broken the record for longest unbeaten run from the beginning of a managerial career in the Premier League, with 12 unbeaten games.

Hazard has been superb this season for Chelsea scoring eight goals in all competitions, but the Belgian believes the 2018 World Cup campaign have had an impact on his games.

'I played a lot of games but this season hasn't been like that. We were a bit unlucky. I think we are in the right way. We played very well.

"We have some difficulties approaching the match from a mental point of view, maybe". I think it's not important if you score 25 or 30 goals, it's important you help the team to win. "But I think we are playing very well". So it's very hard to stay close to these teams.

"I think that, during a championship like the Premier League, this can happen to any team, a match like this".

Eden Hazard has made the frank admission the aggressive treatment that he is often subjected by his markers is starting to take its toll on his body.

Indeed, the 22-year-old has played just six times so far this term and is yet to feature for a single minute in the Premier League, and he admits that he is not happy with the current situation.

Everton set up to be compact, with Sigurdsson crucial in eliminating the space for Jorginho - who was perhaps fortunate to escape with just a booking for a high lunge on the Iceland worldwide - to operate, forcing Chelsea into a more direct approach.
