EPL: Victor Lindelof reveals how Man United can stop Chelsea’s Eden Hazard


Manchester United defender, Victor Lindelof, has revealed how his side can stop Chelsea star player, Eden Hazard, when both teams clash in Sunday’s Premier League fixture at Old Trafford.

Lindelof said that one of the ways Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men can stop Hazard from doing something great against them is by not giving the Belgium international too much space.

“Don’t give him [Eden Hazard] too much space because he will do something great, he’s a fantastic player,” Lindelof told the United Review.

“He’s shown that for a lot of years now. You have to stay close to him and don’t let him have any space with the ball facing our goal.”

Lindelof added: “They’re just a very good team with some fantastic players. Even if they have a bad day, they still have very good individual players who can create chances from almost nothing.

“They’re very good in possession so you have to be really focused when you’re defending. You can’t give them too much space. They’re a good team but we’ll be ready for this game.’

Man United are currently in sixth position on the Premier League table but will level with fourth-placed Chelsea on 67 points if they beat the Blues.
