Chelsea ace Eden Hazard has lifted the lid on the fashion failures of his fellow Belgians and Stamford Bridge team-mates Thibaut Courtois and Michy Batshuayi.

And Hazard, who came off the bench to help Roberto Martínez’s international aide qualify for World Cup 2018 midweek, revealed he has a healthy disregard for the rapper-style dress sense of Batshuayi.

Hazard, who has suffered from an ankle injury of late, is in the frame to start for Antonio Conte’s side when they go to Leicester City for a Premier League encounter on Saturday. He came on as a late second half substitute as Belgium beat Greece 2-1 in Athens to giving the visitors an uncatchable eight-point lead over Bosnia in Group H.

But the fleet-footed winger says Batshuayi and Courtois are certainly not top of the table when it comes to clothes. He said: “For Thibaut it is difficult. He is too big! It is not easy to find big clothes. Michy okay, he likes style, he likes to be dressed like a rapper. It is his own style, I don’t like it but for him, it is good.”

Meanwhile, Hazard says he is relishing the chance to play alongside Blues record signing Alvaro Morata if they pair up in attack at the King Power Stadium.

He said: “I have never played with him before but I just want to play with him. Alvaro is still young but has won a lot of things with Real Madrid and Juventus.

“He has a lot of experience and we need this kind of player, a player that can score a lot of goals. Alvaro can do that and we are happy with him. He is a good guy, he is talking in English already and we are looking forward to playing together.”
