Belgium international Eden Hazard has said that he is capable of reaching the 20 to 25 goal mark this term after making a bright start with Chelsea. The attacker has already amassed eight goals and three assists during the ongoing campaign but he has been absent for the past two matches with a back problem.
In a report covered by Goal.com, Hazard highlighted that he does not have an obsession to score goals but he is pleased with the output provided by him during the ongoing campaign. He added that the 40-goal mark appears far-fetched for him but he can fancy his chances of reaching the 20-goal mark for the first time in his Blues career.

Switzerland international Granit Xhaka has taken the blame for the penalty conceded during the final minutes of the Premier League clash against Crystal Palace. The Gunners looked to have made another comeback after coming from a goal down but they were pegged back seven minutes from time after Xhaka fouled Wilfried Zaha in the box.
Speaking after the game, Xhaka admitted that he has no complaints regarding the penalty decision after clearly touching Zaha before the forward dropped to the ground. He told Sky Sports: “It was a clear penalty. I came too late and I touched him. We can’t be happy because for me we have lost two points. If you are 1-0 down and you change the game and come back to lead 2-1 then you must be clever at the end. We know the Premier League is difficult and we know we can’t win all the games. Palace are difficult at home, but it was not our best game.”

In 158 games as a Premier League player, Harry Kane has scored 113 goals and picked up the Golden Boot on two occasions as the division’s leading scorer. In that time, a World Cup Golden Boot has also come his way and it isn’t bad set of statistics for a player who may feel is overrated and a ‘one-season wonder.’
There will always be detractors however and now, following a positive if unspectacular start to the new season, all the talk is of burn out and the idea that the Spurs striker is simply carrying too much of a burden for club and country.

It looks like Arsenal have decided that Danny Welbeck is too valuable a resource to be allowed to leave on a free transfer next season, with the Gunners management team now discussing his new contract, and hopeful a new deal can be concluded in a matter of weeks.
The decision to keep Welbeck at the Emirates has been backed by Ian Wright, with the enthusiastic Gunners legend saying that Arsenal needed to keep players such as ex-Manchester United Danny Welbeck, if they are to compete for the Champions League spaces once more.
England head coach Gareth Southgate has revealed that Luke Shaw has not suffered any major problem and he should return to first-team action with Manchester United after the mandatory one-week break. The left-back made his first England start in nearly 18 months during the Nations League game against Spain last week and he managed to make a meaningful contribution with an assist.
Despite this, the Three Lions suffered their first defeat at the Wembley Stadium in over two years and the game also ended on a sour note for Shaw after he got concussed following an aerial collision with Spain’s Dani Carvajal. Speaking regarding the same, Southgate confirmed that Shaw has returned to normalcy after the incident and he should return to first-team action once the mandatory rest period is complete, he said: “All being well he has a mandatory six to seven-day rest period, but he should be back as soon as that is done.”
