Jose Mourinho has made it clear to Chelsea star player, Eden Hazard to improve his work-rate before starting for Chelsea again.
Jose, left the Belgium international on the bench against Aston Villa on Saturday making it obvious Mourinho is still the main man to make decision at Chelsea.
Former Real Madrid, manager is satisfied with the performance of Willian and Pedro. Chelsea who are struggling to find form in the Premier League since the start of 2015-16 season are criticized heavily for poor individual performances.
Juan Mata was sold to Manchester Untied by Jose Mourinho by lack of work rate the Spaniard showed under Mourinho.
Mourinho talking after the victory said, ‘I left out Hazard because we are conceding lots of goals. We need to defend better. We need our midfielders to be just worried in the central area of the pitch, not worrying about compensation on the left or right.
‘Playing with Willian and Pedro, the midfielders don’t have to move left or right. They know those parts are controlled.
‘It was leaving super quality on the bench, but bringing tactical discipline and hoping the team could be solid.
‘I will continue that way, or he comes in our direction and tries to emulate the same work that Willian and Pedro put in.’
Diego Costa returned to Chelsea’s starting line-up and led his side to a 2-0 win over Aston Villa in the English Premier League on Saturday (October 17), easing the pressure on manager Jose Mourinho.
