Eden Hazard has said the tag of champions isn’t easy to hold for chelsea, as everybody wants to beat them.
The blues have been unimpressive this term, winning just one of their four matches and garnering only four points, sitting in the 13the position.
Hazard has come under criticism. And though Chelsea sit eight points behind Manchester City, he is hopeful Chelsea wins the title.
“Itâ€™s difficult to play as a champion because everyone wants to beat you, everyone wants to kill you,” Hazard told Hypebeast magazine.
“We wear the gold badge and it’s very good.
“We had a fantastic season last season, if we could do the same this season we’d be good.”
Hazard, 24, has developed into one of Chelsea’s undisputed key men since joining them from Lille and is keen to keep proving his worth game after game.
“Every day I learn. In training, in the game. Itâ€™s good playing big games, if you play against a big player you can learn a lot. You learn a lot every day. Every day I try to reach a better level,” he added.
“This is my job, every day I try to score. Every game I try to score. I just want to be champion. I just want to be a champion and win everything like I did last season.”
