Chelsea's Hazard feeling fans expectations ahead of Nordsjaelland tie

Chelsea attacking midfielder Eden Hazard has admitted that the pressure is on for the Blues to win their final Champions League Group E match against Nordsjaelland tonight.

Rafa Benitez's side need to win against the Norwegian side, and hope that group leaders Shakhter Donetsk beat Juventus in the Ukraine.


Hopes may not be so high considering that Chelsea are winless in their last six games.


But Hazard, 21, revealed to The Sun that the players feel the pressure and expectations from the fans:


“We have to get a result from the last match whatever happens elsewhere. At Lille last season it was the same. We absolutely had to win but sadly we did not succeed.


“At Chelsea the aim is to win the competition, whereas at Lille the aim was to get past the first stage. It is also different with the supporters because here they expect you to win games. You feel the greater expectations."


Hazard, who has netted three times so far this season in the league, has been a regular starter under both previous manager Roberto Di Matteo and Benitez, and despite receiving plaudits at times this season, has played in all of the last six matches.


Talking of Hazard's start to his Blues career, Benitez has indicated that it will take time for the Belgian international to fulfil his potential:


"He is a great player but he has to adapt also to the tempo of the Premier League, it is not the same way to play [as in France].


"At Lille he knew he was the key player and the way he was playing was with this feeling - 'I am the best player and I will do what I want to do and it will be right'.


"Here you come to the maximum level in the Premier League and Champions League. You have to be always at your best and sometimes you cannot make the difference."
