“We’ve all seen the glimpses of what he’s capable of and if he plays regularly and he finds a consistency and it keeps happening for him then he can only grow and mature

“He can then become the player we expect him to be and he’ll be key for Chelsea and England once he’s back fit.

“Callum Hudson-Odoi could be the missing piece that Chelsea need and the same goes for [Ruben] Loftus-Cheek. They will both be very important players for Chelsea next year.

“Hazard is a massive asset to lose but at some point players like that want to try different challenges if their team is not completely dominating.

“It’s only a short career. But I don’t think Chelsea will struggle because with all of the players who they have out on loan – I believe it’s something like 41 players – surely if they haven’t been sold they’re considered good enough for the Premier League.

“If they bring back the right ones, I think they’ll be fine.”
