Eintracht Frankfurt reveal plan to stop Chelsea ace Eden Hazard in Europa League semi-final

Eintracht Frankfurt will ‘double up’ on Eden Hazard as they bid to thwart the Chelsea superstar in their Europa League semi-final clash. Two-time Premier League winner Hazard is enjoying another superb season at Stamford Bridge, scoring 26 goals and making 15 assists in all competitions. Frankfurt head coach Adi Hutter rates Hazard as ‘one of the top three’ players in the world and is ready to ‘double up’ on the Belgian in the Europa League encounter. ‘He is one of the best players in the world, who other big clubs want to have,’ Hutter said.

‘In duels he is great, very dynamic. You have to double up on him and you have to try to take him out of the game. ‘With his qualities he is one of the top three in the world.’ Sarri has been on the wrong end of some stinging criticism from Chelsea fans this season but, as the 2018-19 campaign draws to a close, his team are still fighting on two fronts. The Blues look well set to secure a top four finish while they could also qualify for next season’s Champions League by winning the Europa League.
