The Blues won the Premier League title and came super close to celebrating the double, but according to one of their most prominent players the current squad may not be enough next season if the team really want to repeat their PL success and go far in the UEFA Champions League.
The Champions League is a very difficult competition with many good teams who are capable of reaching the semi-finals and the final. Maybe with a couple of new players to take the level even higher we can do well, but it’s not just about quality, you also need a bit of luck
Eden Hazard told Chelsea’s official website, having in mind the fact that next season the team will have to play many more games, and even harder ones, not only in the Champions League, but also in the Premier League, since next season they will be the team to beat.
As for his own performances, he attributed his great season to the new system the team are playing under Conte, explaining why is that.
I started to play a bit more centrally, like a number 10. [Marcos] Alonso was close to me so he was able to help when we didn’t have the ball, just like [N’Golo] Kante, [Nemanja] Matic and [Cesc] Fabregas. The new system helped us because we have the players who suit the formation
the Belgian star said.
