Eden Hazard has revealed that Thierry Henry has encouraged him to shoot more often during the pair’s time working together with the Belgian national team.

The Belgian playmaker was named as the man of the match as he scored two of Chelsea FC’s goals in their 3-0 victory over West Brom on Monday night as the Blues returned to winning ways in the Premier League.

Henry has been getting to know Hazard well in his role as a coach for the Belgian national team.

And speaking to Sky Sports after Monday night’s game, Hazard revealed how Henry has been helping him to improve his finishing.

Hazard said in the post-match interview: “Thierry told me with the national team that maybe I don’t shoot enough. I try to take my chances.”

The result left Chelsea FC in fourth place in the Premier League table as they chase Champions League qualification under Antonio Conte.

The west London side will return to action on Friday night when they take on Huddersfield Town in the fifth round of the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues’ main focus will be on securing a place in the top four this season as Conte looks to guide them into the Champions League for next season.
