Eden Hazard is buzzing after breaking the 100-goal barrier for Chelsea, and supporters of the Blues are going to love his comments following a 2-1 win at Watford on Boxing Day.

[ RECAP: Watford 1-2 Chelsea ]

Hazard, 27, ends the day with 11 goals and nine assists this season for Chelsea and another two goals in the League Cup.

While he’s flirted with Real Madrid and the transfer market for some time, he’s feeling Chelsea this festive season. Here’s his response to breaking the century mark, via the BBC:

“It means a lot, especially because we won today. 101 goals with this amazing club is something i will never forget but now the fans, staff and players want more. I want to score more for this club and then try to be a legend like Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba and John Terry.”


He even had jokes!

After playing another match as a center forward, Hazard claimed his versatility is beyond our expectations.

“I can even play at centre back,” he said. “My target is to score goals and to try and win the game, as a winger or a striker. I missed a couple of chances today, especially in the first half, but I scored two so its important to keep focus.”
