Eden Hazard issue warning to Neymar

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has issued a warning to Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar, about the toughness of the Ligue 1 defenders.

The Belgian playmaker insists that the former Barcelona star won’t have it all his own way in the league due to the high standard of defending.

Hazard is of the opinion that Neymar will be surprised by what the defenders will offer.

He told Marca: "It's not an easy championship, all the defenders are watching you, they're waiting for you.

"But Neymar is a special player, he can do whatever he wants with the ball and he's part of a good team.

"It will be fine for him."

Hazard is set to feature for Chelsea this weekend against Leicester after missing their first two games due to an ankle injury.
