. .

There’s no denying that Chelsea’s star faded when Eden Hazard finally realized his lifelong dreams of playing for Real Madrid and working with Zinedine Zidane in the US for the summer of 2019.

After lighting up an often useful Chelsea team for seven years, scoring 110 goals and 92 assists later, the bubbly Belgian was destined for bigger things (or so he thought). .

That put the blues in a dilemma; Hindered by a transfer ban, the West London club couldn’t replace its talisman for a calendar year (or so they thought). . Although the embargo was lifted in January and allegedly £ 150million was discharged, nothing has been done by the club’s hierarchy to address the obvious need to replace Hazard’s goals and creativity.

Then summer came and oh baby, Chelsea went in – especially in the attack department. As you may have read, the German couple Kai Havertz and Timo Werner followed the signing of the preliminary contract by Hakim Ziyech through the door on Stamford Bridge.

While these arrivals were predictably causing excitement, it wasn’t initially clear on paper who had the potential to emulate their predecessor. Although he shone in the Champions League, Ziyech came from the lower Eredivisie, Havertz was only 21 years old and it remained to be seen whether Werner’s style of play would match the Premier League.

Only 13 games in the latter, however, emphatically show that he has the ability to at least replicate Hazard’s numbers. The Belgian played mainly on the left – just like the former RB Leipzig this season – and scored 13 goals and 24 assists in all competitions in his first season.

Werner already has eight or. four, and while signed for his goals and unable to match Hazard’s two dozen assists, he has shown that creativity is the next best aspect of his game.

The 24-year-old has contributed at least ten assists in the last three seasons, both from a central forward role and from the left. That left flank, which Hazard himself made for most of a decade at Stamford Bridge, could prove to be his best position in Frank Lampard’s system if Tammy Abraham’s decent form persists.

The comfortable 2-0 win in Newcastle was the best demonstration so far this season, although Werner missed several opportunities that even Joelinton would have lost at the other end. However, we will not deal with it for now, we will focus on his wing play. Werner created three shooting opportunities, played three key passes, and completed 31 transfers (per FBref), but one moment in particular will resonate.

When the clock at 65. Minute in St.. . James’ Park, there seemed to be a glitch in the Matrix. One moment the ball rolled tame over the Chelsea half, the next Abraham slipped it into the back of the net. Only the slow-motion playback revealed what had really happened; Was it a bird Was it an airplane? Was it Eden Hazard from 2018/19?

Well no. True to his nickname, ‘Turbo Timo’ collected the ball in his own half before moving forward, dismantling the mere yards between Federico Fernandez and Sean Longstaff, and shooting towards the penalty area. The already gutted Magpies defense couldn’t stop him from sticking the ball in the path of Chelsea’s number nine, which was willingly with dead eyes in his target.

That’s not to say that Werner Hazard even comes close in terms of technology and the indescribable ability to bring joy through his touch and movement, but those eight seconds on the hill high above Newcastle city center will bring back fond memories mischievously best for Chelsea fans of their former number ten on his flight.

The finger has already been pointed at Werner’s subdued performances in Chelsea’s two biggest games so far this season, a draw and a loss to Man Utd and Man Utd, respectively. Liverpool where Hazard would be successful.

{Dortmund will not fill fans with confidence during his time in his home country.

When Hazard’s career at Stamford Bridge came to its natural conclusion in 2019, he had 29 goals against the « big six » in all competitions. So, work for Turbo Timo, but no challenge should seem insurmountable for a boy who would run up mountains as a boy, for God’s sake. The gigantic duel with Tottenham on Sunday offers an early opportunity to improve the record.

Werner will never be able to repeat that certain something that has beautified almost every Hazard outing, but if he continues at his current pace (and sticks to it) he has every chance to see the goals and creativity of the to imitate beloved Belgians – even when those special moments are scarce. That would be more than enough to secure its place in the hearts of Chelsea fans for years to come.
