Chelsea boss Benitez welcomes back Hazard

Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez is delighted with his returning players.

Eden Hazard was back for the 4-1 win over Wigan following his three-match ban for kicking a ball boy, David Luiz was fit again and impressed in midfield and Petr Cech shrugged off a finger injury to play.

Benitez, whose role had been questioned publicly due to just three wins in the previous 10 games, said: "Before we didn't have these options in some positions. Now it's much better because you can manage the game in a different way.

"In the past we didn't have these kind of options and it was more difficult to change the game."
