Mourinho: Hazard took charge of Chelsea for Fulham win

Eden Hazard took charge of Chelsea's halftime team talk for their victory over Fulham on Saturday.

The Daily Star says it was Hazard who stepped up to provide the inspiration to keep their title bid on track.

Jose Mourinho was so unimpressed with Chelsea's lethargic first-half display his only words to his team were understood to be along the lines of "it's your s***, so sort it out."

That would normally be the cue for a Chelsea veteran such as John Terry, Frank Lampard or Petr Cech to provide the rousing speech to shake them into life.

But instead it was Hazard who showed maturity beyond his years to do the talking - with his feet.

Mourinho said: "The fact Eden came here in the second half and felt the team needed him to make them click is fantastic.

"He felt in the second half that the team needs someone to create and he made them click and after that the team followed him."
