Eden Hazard: I can now concentrate on assists


Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard says new signings Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas can help the Blues get back to winning terms.

The Blues failed to lift silverware last season, finishing third in the English Premier League and crashing out to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

But with key players joining in the summer, the 23-year-old believes things can change for the better.

"It's true they're the best players. Costa can score every game and Cesc is one of the best midfielders in the world," Hazard told The Evening Standard.

"Cesc can score as well and make good assists, just like the first game against Burnley where he made a beautiful pass for Andre Schurrle.

"It's very important for the team and he can help us win."

The Belgium international scored 17 goals in all competitions during the last campaign but says he will be determined this season to provide more assists for his team-mates.

"Last season I scored a lot of goals and maybe this season I can make a lot more passes forward because Costa is one of the best and he can score.

"It's my job to score but it's also my job to make assists as well.

"I can now concentrate on assists. I'm ready to be better than last season. When I'm on the pitch, I try to give my best.

"The new players have settled in very good. I enjoy playing with the best players in the squad and I'm very happy.

"We have a very competitive team and we want more than last season. Last season we played good but we didn't win any trophies so we want more.

"We can win four trophies and I hope we can compete in the two cups, the Premier League and Champions League for a long time throughout the year."
