2 players that could struggle for game time at Chelsea if Hazard eventually returns

Chelsea has reportedly opened formal talks with their former star player Eden Hazard for a possible return to Stamford Bridge. The Belgian Captain who left Chelsea in 2019 is reportedly unhappy at his current club Real Madrid. So he could return to Chelsea after spending two seasons with the Madrid club.

Nonetheless, Eden Hazard has struggled to impress at the La Liga club since joining them in 2019, and he has managed just 51 appearances for the Los Blancos due to injuries.Hazard suffered a defeat with Real Madrid in last season's Champions League semi-final against his former club Chelsea.

However, he could quickly revive his career at Stamford Bridge if he eventually completes his return to Chelsea, and his presence could affect some Chelsea players as they could struggle for game time if Hazard eventually returns to his best form at Chelsea.

And judging from their recent performances, we have suggested the two stars who could struggle the most if Hazard eventually returns.

1. Kai Havertz: Kai Havertz has had a mixed start at Chelsea following his big-money transfer to Bridge in 2020. But Chelsea fans will always love him for his only goal that secured Chelsea the Champions League in May. But judging from his recent performance be might struggle to have enough game time if Hazard returns.Ziyech and Havertz will have to improve their games to have more chances at Chelsea if Hazard eventually returns.

2. Hakim Ziyech: Ziyech has also struggled to perform well consistently due to injury setbacks since moving to the Bridge. And Eden Hazard's presence could make it more difficult for him to play regularly.Hazard would create chances for Werner, Lukaku, and other attackers to score many goals if he returns.

Nonetheless, Eden Hazard is a world-class player, and his presence in the current Chelsea squad would add more strength to their attack. And the likes of Lukaku, Werner, Mount, and other attackers could benefit a lot from him.

Christian Pulisic would also benefit from his return, as he would learn many attacking tricks from the Belgian trickery winger.
