Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has brushed aside any concerns
regarding Eden Hazard's below-par performance against Aston Villa.
The Belgium international is considered one of the Premier
League's brightest talents, and was even in the running for last term's Ballon
d'Or, which was eventually won by Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, the 23-year-old was well below his best during the
3-0 win over Villa this past weekend, and while Mourinho admitted as much, the
Portuguese tactician is nowhere close to hitting the panic button.
"Yes. (I) agree. I don't know what he needs. I know he needs to play more than he did (against Villa)," said Mourinho, when it was suggested Hazard was lacking against Villa.
"He started the season well. Eden played good matches
"I think it's more an isolated not good performance
than a period.
"No dramas and (I am) not too much worried about it,
but (Saturday) was not his day, was not his performance."
