The Eden Hazard saga is over, with the most talked about man in football confirming that he will be joining Chelsea next season.
Since their incredible victory in the UEFA Champions League final over Bayern Munich, the Blues were always a serious contender for the Belgian star—beating both Manchester United and Manchester City to his signature.
The next question then for Hazard and Chelsea is what will his role within the team be and how will he fit within the Blues' starting side. Let's take a look as to what the Blues' starting lineup will be with Hazard. Who keeps their starting place and who falls to the bench?
Just before we begin, I'd like to point out two things. Firstly, this lineup is based on the current players that Chelsea have—and not based on who may or may not be transferred. Thus whilst the Blues are certain to sign some new stars and dispose of some current players, you won't find any of those predictions in this list.
And secondly, the squad is based on the formation used by Chelsea most this season which, according to WhoScored.com is a 4-3-3 formation.
With that out of the way, let's take a look at the starting side for Chelsea with the inclusion of new signing Eden Hazard.
