Eden Hazard has been involved in 19 Goals directly, scoring 10 and assisting 9 while Chelsea has scored a total of 37. The Belgian is directly responsible for 51.3% of the Club’s Goals.
It’s safe to say at this point in time, Eden Hazard is carrying Chelsea on his shoulders. The day Hazard doesn’t perform Chelsea loses.
“no ones bigger than the club” that statement needs a huge rethink because Eden Hazard IS the club, contributed to over 50% of our goals this season the level of dependency is higher than ever before @ChelseaFC GIVE HAZARD MORE SUPPORT AND LET HIM LOOSE THE PL IS NEVER READY pic.twitter.com/rd5VDDZfhP

What makes Chelsea’s dependence on Hazard even scarier is the fact that the Belgian is yet to decide his Future and will have just a year left oh his current deal come June 2019. If the Belgium Captain decides to leave the Blues in the Summer, Chelsea could lose him for a meager fee and don’t have the funds to acquire a replacement of the same caliber. The Blues’ problems don’t end there, Maurizio Sarri has a serious Striker problem with Alvaro Morata not performing and Olivier Giroud not scoring Goals on a consistent basis. To go with the striker incompetency, Chelsea winger Willian is turning into Social Media’s new troll after a string of selfish displays and the lack of a final pass, while Pedro seems to spend more time injured than on the pitch. All these problems with Chelsea’s Goalscorers have left Eden Hazard isolated as the Blues’ primary goal source and in many instances the Club’s primary creative source as well.
Chelsea looked like serious title contenders at the start of the Season with Sarriball taking over Stamford Bridge and the team playing with a certain swagger and Charisma from both ends. New Signing Jorginho was dictating the play and everyone, including even Alvaro Morata, was looking impressive. But the past few weeks have been grim for the West London Club with losses to Wolverhampton Wanderers, Tottenham Hotspur, and Leicester City dampening not only Title hopes but also the hopes of finishing in the Top 4. Eden Hazard is the only light at the end of this dark tunnel which makes it imperative for Roman Abramovich and the Chelsea board to do everything in their power to keep the Belgian.
Maurizio Sarri’s side will go into utter ruin without Hazard and keeping the Belgian will allow Sarri to attract talented players who want to play attacking Football alongside the extremely talented Belgian. Overdependency on a player is never good but if playing alongside Hazard can improve players and attract some World Class talent to the Club then there isn’t too much of a harm. Chelsea needs to act fast and do everything in their power to keep the Belgian or things can go from bad to worse.
