It was little surprise to see him start the Community Shield match against Manchester City at Villa Park.
(PRWEB UK) 25 May 2013
Digital Sports Group today announced that The PFA profile for the professional footballer Eden Hazard has been been updated. The PFA player profiles provide a unique and unrivalled insight into a professional footballers career with full career stats, news biographies and features.
Eden Hazard agreed terms to sign for Chelsea in June 2012 from Lille in France, where he had played since 2005, and became the fourth Belgian to join the club following the arrivals of Thibaut Courtois, Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne.
After impressing on his debut, which also included a goal, against Seattle Sounders, Eden continued to catch the eye throughout pre-season, and it was little surprise to see him start the Community Shield match against Manchester City at Villa Park.
A week later, he made his Premier League debut, creating two goals in the first six minutes of a scintillating display against Wigan Athletic, first releasing Branislav Ivanovic with a defence-splitting pass, and then drawing a foul from Ivan Ramis to win a penalty.
He followed that up in our next game - a 4-2 win at home to Reading - by winning a penalty which Frank Lampard converted to break the deadlock, as well as laying on the fourth for Branislav Ivanovic.
He scored his first Chelsea goal three days later from the penalty spot in a 2-0 win against Newcastle United, while his first strike from open play came in the 4-1 win against Norwich City, when he finished off a quick counter-attack by scoring from Juan Mata's pass.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say: “Eden Hazard is a fantastic player and we have been working hard to provide the most fantastic resource that is both enjoyable to use and useful. Working with the PFA provides unique biographical information and insights that can be found nowhere else online. We are proud of our partnership with the Professional Footballers Association and the unrivalled access this provides us to the players.”
DSG became the official digital partner of the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) earlier this year and have since launched a number of Player profile fan pages on social media site Facebook as well as providing official player pages on their football news site football.co.uk.
