The Belgian came on as a substitute for his first game of the 2017/2018 Premier League season in the game against Leicester City at the King Power stadium where Chelsea had the better of the home side.

Alvaro Morata and Leicester City Former boy, Kante scored to give Chelsea all three points in a fiesty encounter on Saturday as the blues rose up in the Premier League standings.

But Hazard joked about Alvaro Morata goals this season saying he needs to learn how to score with his feet after he scored his third headed goal in his third start for his new club on Saturday.

Morata opened the scoring in Leicester with a header from a Cesar Azpilicueta cross, before N’Golo Kante doubled the advantage with a long-range strike.

Jamie Vardy added a penalty but it wasn’t enough to deny Chelsea three vital points at the King Power Stadium. Chelsea’s win also saw Hazard return for his first appearance since the FA Cup final in May, after he broke his ankle while away on international duty.

Hazard got to play with Morata for the first time after coming off the bench in the 78th minute and he was impressed by the link up play with his new team-mate.

“Like you saw, I saw he is a good player, I saw that he scores a lot with his head… now he needs to score with his feet,” joked Hazard after the match. “He is a top player. He can score everytime. When he scores, we win the game so I think he is good.
