Hazard: Time to start winning

Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard admits the Blues have to pick up three points away to West Brom this weekend, and is hoping to get his name on the score sheet.

The reigning Premier League champions were held at home by Swansea City in their opening match of the season, before an early clash with title rivals Manchester City ended in a heavy 3-0 defeat to leave Chelsea with just a single point after two games.

Belgian winger Hazard, one of the Premier League's best players last season, is now hoping to get off the mark to help the Blues kickstart their title defence at the Hawthorns on Sunday.

"Of course we need to change, we have just one point," he told Gillette Soccer Saturday. "We need to play our game, our football. We need to score more goals, defend very well. Everybody has to be better.

"When you play football, the most important is to score more. This is my challenge now. Every game when I can, I try to score. It's not easy to score every game.

"It's the beginning of the season, we have to work. Now we play the third game and if we want to be at the top at the end, we have to start winning games."

The Blues have been boosted by the recent signing of Pedro from Barcelona, and Hazard is eager to learn from the 28-year-old Spaniard, who has won virtually everything in his career so far.

"When you play with Chelsea, you want to play with big players. He can bring a new experience.I want to learn, I'm still young, I want to be one of the very best and I learn from the best," Hazard concluded.
