Essien hopes Hazard continues his impressive form.

Hazard registered his eighth league goal of the campaign at the St. Mary's stadium.

It’s good to have Eden Hazard at Chelsea as “he is such a great footballer”, according to Michael Essien. Essien heaped praise on Hazard, who has scored eight goals in eight Premier League games for the Blues. The Belgian was heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid all summer but he decided to remain at Stamford Bridge.

"First of all, it's still good to have him with us, he's such a good footballer," the Blues legend told Omnisport. "He had a very fantastic World Cup and he came back and he's been doing very well at the moment.

"Hopefully, he will carry the team until the end [of the season] and we will see. When you're playing well, the big clubs will start coming. As I know, he's happy at Chelsea so, hopefully, he can stay as long as he can."
