Chelsea star, Eden Hazard, believes his manager Jose Mourinho can give the Blues an edge in their Champions League quarter-final against Paris Saint-Germain.
Chelsea face the Ligue 1 champions in the last eight after beating Galatasaray and former Chelsea forward, Didier Drogba, 3-1 on aggregate in the last-16.
Hazard insists Mourinho, who has won the trophy with Porto and Inter Milan, can use his experience to prepare his side for a tight tie.
“I think the coach is strong enough to handle these kind of matches, but we must be strong defensively,” the Belgian told Canal+.
The 23-year-old compared PSG’s style of play to Arsenal’s football, and is confident Chelsea can exploit the weaknesses of the French side.
“We know PSG like to play like Arsenal – they play good football and dominate their matches but if we press them we can win,” he continued.
“Zlatan Ibrahimovic of course impresses me but Thiago Motta is a great player, as are Yohan Cabaye and Edinson Cavani and their defence is also tough.”
Hazard has been in fine form this season, scoring 14 goals and assisting nine to help Chelsea to the top of the Premier League.
However, Man City can still overtake Mourinho’s side in the league and with Real Madrid, Bayern Munich as well Barcelona still competing for the Champions League, Chelsea might end the season without a major trophy – which would be a first under Mourinho.
The Portuguese is in his second spell at Stamford Bridge, winning two Premier League titles, two League Cups and the FA Cup during his first reign at club from 2004 to 2007.
