"I feel we have not seen the Hazard we know from England yet," Wenger said.

"He was not physically fit after he was injured. He's not a player who is usually impressed by anything.

"But he looked to me that he (doesn't have) the same confidence he had at Chelsea. He's not a type of guy to be (awestruck).

"I think it was more down to physical reasons. He came too heavy, what you read in the papers.

"If you want to make a horse lose a race, you put two kilograms on a horse of 500 kilograms and it's enough."
