Chelsea ace Hazard: Premier League everything I expected

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard says nothing has surprised him about his first weeks in the Premier League.

Hazard's has enjoyed an instant impact at Chelsea.

"Being on the pitch with the players is exactly the same, it doesn't matter if you are in England or in France or anywhere else," Hazard told chelseafc.com.

"The one thing that I have noticed is the stadiums and the crowds are different in England, but once you are actually on the pitch it makes no difference what country it is."

Hazard acknowledges similarities with how he played with Joe Cole at Lille last season.

"They are players who are comfortable with the ball at their feet," he says. "With players of that quality it is easy to get an understanding with them. Juan and Oscar and people like that are very intelligent players so they know when to find the best pass and the best solution. It is easy to play with players like that."
