Ahead of Saturday’s London derby, Chelsea midfield maestro Eden Hazard has given rivals Arsenal a massive clue on how to stop him.
The Belgium who has been substituted in the Blues last three fixtures and a doubt for the game let the cat out of the bag when he revealed to Gunners legend during an interview with Sky Sports that he has a very weak left foot.
Hazard tends to cut inside his right while playing on the left wing because he is vulnerable with his left foot. Arsene Wenger may look to exploit that when he plans the team strategy for the game on Saturday.
“For me it’s easier to play with my right foot. It’s simple. If I go right, I see Diego [Costa] and have different solutions,” Hazard said when asked about his dribbling technique and why he has a tendency to cut inside from the left.
“I go alone or pass to Diego or the midfield can join in. If I go the other way, the cross with my left foot is not good.”
Interestingly, Hazard has scored nine goals in 22 matches for Chelsea this season and two of those goals have come from his left foot.
