2018-19 Season

Hazard had an absolute blockbuster of a final season for Chelsea. He helped the London side to a third place Premier League finish, above their Champions League finalist London rivals, Spurs, achieving a staggering 16 goals and 15 assists.

He was instrumental in Chelsea’s run to the
EFL Cup final, scoring three times in the tournament, but was unlucky to lose
out on penalties to Manchester City in the final.

With the impending inevitability of his departure to Los Blancos looming over him, football fans everywhere understood that the Europa League final was Hazard’s last chance to win one last bit of silverware with Chelsea.

Did he deliver? His two goals and man of
the match performance in Chelsea’s win would probably indicate, yes.

After completing his move to Real Madrid, he has missed out on the first few weeks of La Liga with a hamstring injury, but returned for Los Galacticos’ 3-2 victory over Levante.

Only time will tell if Hazard can reproduce the same calibre of performances at Real Madrid, but one thing is for sure, his FIFA 20 rating reflects his incredible form from last season.

Despite of Eden Hazard’s phenomenal final season with Chelsea, his FIFA 20 rating remains the same as last year.

This is unsurprising as it’s obviously far more difficult to achieve an increase in your rating when it’s already 91. The only players rated higher than the Belgium winger are Neymar (OVR 92), Cristiano Ronaldo (OVR 93) and of course, Lionel Messi (OVR 94).

But, now Hazard has taken to the stage
where Ronaldo became a living legend of the game, can Hazard push on at Real
Madrid and carve his name in to the history of the Spanish giants?

Style of Play

At Chelsea, Hazard’s quick feet and agility allowed him to cut inside from the left wing, presenting himself with two options; utilise the advanced left back (Marcos Alonso), or enjoy the dangerous freedom he creates for himself in the middle of the park.

In FIFA 20, players can utilise him similarly.

His exceptionally high dribbling stat, partnered with the new strafe dribbling gameplay feature, means that Hazard’s agility and speed is truly devastating when used against an opposition. His speed and dribbling (combined with 4 star skills) are certainly Hazard’s greatest strengths.

Many players preferred utilising Hazard’s
talents in a central attacking role in FIFA 19, and this tactic also works very
well in FIFA 20. Again, his dribbling and agility means he can easily create
space for himself, whilst his 86 passing stat means he is more than capable of
finding that eye of the needle pass to an advanced attacker.
