Eden Hazard has been a huge part of Chelsea’s superb start to the season and Ladbrokes customers will be hoping he can continue to live up to that billing when the Blues take on NK Maribor in the Champions League.
The Belgian international is the next name attached to the Ladbrokes first goalscorer price boost and is now 11/2 – from 9/2 – to open the deadlock at Stamford Bridge.
The 23-year-old has been in fine form hitting two goals so far this season and he also has two assists to his name, including laying on the pass for Cesc Fabregas’ goal in the 1-1 draw with Schalke.
Hazard was instrumental in Jose Mourinho’s side’s 2-0 win over London rivals Arsenal, producing a mesmerising run into the heart of the Gunners’ defence before drawing a foul from Laurent Koscielny and winning a penalty.
The Belgium star picked himself up off the floor to calmly slot the ball past Wojciech Szczesny to score the first goal and send Chelsea on the way to a vital three points.
With star striker Diego Costa out injured, Mourinho and Ladbrokes punters will be hoping for a similar performance from Hazard, who will be key to Chelsea’s chances of picking up a home win against the Slovenian champions.
