Real Madrid ace Hazard: I'd love to play for Chelsea boss Lampard

Real Madrid ace Eden Hazard believes Chelsea's players are having more fun without him this season.

The club's transfer ban has somewhat forced Lampard's hand despite netting over £100m for Hazard in the summer, with young stars Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori all earning rave reviews.

Hazard has joined the chorus of impressive admirers, telling Sky Sports: "When I watch them, [there is] no Hazard but it is a party.

"They can score a lot of goals, the fans are happy, they are third in the league, it is going to be a great season. They just need to stay there and win games.

"We all know Willian, Jorginho they are very good. Also with the young players coming through, it is great to see the club high and I hope they can stay there."

When asked if he would like to have played under Lampard, Hazard replied: "Yeah, of course."
