It has been a tough start to the season for the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern…
With a couple of losses behind them, in both the Community Shield and the Premier League, there are concerns in the pub of a repeat of the 2015/16 season, and so the Blues desperately need a boost.
Fortunately, Antonio Conte has received exactly that in the lead-up to Chelsea’s game with Tottenham – with Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur reporting on Twitter that Eden Hazard is back in training with the Blues.

Though he’s still going to need some time to get back to fitness, the Belgian is clearly on the right track, and this is massive for the Blues.
After all, he is undoubtedly their best player, and last season he became a real catalyst for the club. If anyone is going to turn their season around, it is going to be him.
Unsurprisingly, the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have ordered another drink in celebration of this news, and the Blues on Twitter have had a very similar response.
See what they’ve had to say below…
we just need 15 min against tottenham for him to make a difference
