Chelsea 2-1 Man City: Rio Ferdinand says Eden Hazard was exceptional

It is up to us, the players, to make them happy.

Hazard has been outstanding in Chelsea's charge towards the Premier League title this season, with the Belgian strongly tipped to be one of the favourites for PFA Player of the Year award.

Asked how Hazard had dealt with the speculation, Courtois - who has also been linked with Madrid - added: "Eden is not affected by it".

Rumours of Real making a swoop for Hazard refuse to go away and the latest suggest they will throw in long-time Chelsea target Morata as part of the deal. He is just calm.

"Yes [Chelsea need to keep him]", Courtois told the Evening Standard. As he tends to do, Hazard produced a great overall performance, including scoring both goals in Chelsea's 2-1 win.

Chelsea No.10 Hazard has been back to his brilliant best in recent months after a slump in form last season contributed to the demise of Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge.

"His penalty was from the rebound, which reminded me a bit of what occurred against Crystal Palace when we clinched the league a couple of years back".

'He knows that he is important to Chelsea, like I do.

"He is fantastic, but he works hard for the team too and did a lot defensively, which is what we need from him".

Though the Chelsea forward has rubbished speculation about a possible switch to Madrid, it remains likely that Los Blancos will continue their pursuit of one of the Premier League's top performers for the current campaign. If we just speak about football, he has signed for Chelsea for a long time and he will not have the standing he has now at any other top club.
