Sunderland's Mignolet expects Hazard to shine with Chelsea

Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is backing Eden Hazard to succeed with Chelsea.

The Lille winger is expected to soon complete a protracted £32million move to the European champions and his fellow Belgian is tipping him to prove a hit in West London.

"I think Eden has the qualities and talent to play in England," Mignolet said. "On his day, he can make the difference for his team.

"It is a big step from Lille to Chelsea and he is going to be under some pressure, especially with the money that has been spent, but I think he is a good player and if he is on his day, he can do a good job for Chelsea."
