A lot was expected of the Belgium star following his big-money from Chelsea in the previous transfer window, but injuries have affected his time in Spain so far.

One of the criticism for Hazard has been his weight this season, and he admitted he put on five kilograms on the off-season.

“It is true. I will not hide it,” Hazard explained to Belgian magazine Sport/Foot.

“When I am on vacation, I am on vacation. I put on five kilos [11 pounds] this summer. I am one of those who puts on weight very quickly then loses it very quickly, if I pay attention.

“When I was at Lille I weighed 72 kilos but then I gained muscle and went to 75 kilos. On a bad day I can weigh 77. In the summer I went up to 80 kilos but I lost it again 10 days later.”
