Craig Bellamy poses his concern regarding Chelsea star Eden Hazard

Sky Sports pundit Craig Bellamy has said that Eden Hazard has the tendency to show up only when he feels like doing and that could hurt the club in the long-term. The Belgium international started the campaign in fine fashion with five goals from as many matches for the Blues before they witnessed a goalless stalemate at the hands of West Ham United.

Speaking after that game, Bellamy highlighted that Hazard had the tendency to choose games where he would perform and may not turn up when he has had enough with the manager, he said: “He picks and chooses. If I was Barcelona or Real Madrid of course I’d want him but I’d be concerned about his dips in performances. Once he’s had enough of a manager, he isn’t sure whether he will turn it on.”

The Belgian appeared very much certain to leave the Blues after he admitted that he could pursue a new challenge during the World Cup but that never happened thereafter with new boss Maurizio Sarri having taken up the job with the promise that both Hazard and Willian would stay put at the club for the campaign.

Nonetheless, “Hazard’s future remains unsecure in the long-term with reports suggesting that the Blues may need to assure the attacker“ with the minimum of Champions League football in order for him to consider a new contract beyond the summer of 2020. Hazard had an off day against the Hammers last weekend where he struggled to create chances but he has the opportunity to put things right when “the Blues face Liverpoo“l in a double-header in the ongoing week.

Chelsea initially make the trip to Anfield for the League Cup third round on Wednesday night and they would thereafter return to Stamford Bridge where Jurgen Klopp’s side would visit for the Premier League game on Saturday.
