Lampard tells Chelsea doubters: There's life after Hazard

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is adamant there's life after Eden Hazard.

Chelsea struggled without Hazard, now of Real Madrid, for Sunday's thrashing at Manchester United.

Lampard was asked about the Belgian at today's Super Cup pre-match presser.

“I agree I was a huge fan of Hazard, one of the best in world football, over his time at Chelsea one of the most productive and a leader," said the manager.

"You can't replace him individually. But the good news and the positive news is that we have a group that can step up. The answer is that as a team we have to find a way to carry on. Hazard, Terry, Drogba, move on.
