The fact that Eden Hazard has gotten off to a great start in the EPL can't be denied. Other high-priced and quality players such as David Silva, Juan Mata and Sergio Aguero all got off to great starts as well, but none contributed like Hazard has at this point.
Hazard's quick adaptation to the league doesn't necessarily mean he will run the show throughout the entire season, but it shows why he was worth all the attention and money.
Had he failed to muster anything of note in his games so far, he could have been facing ridicule similar to Andy Carroll.
Only quality players can get off to such a fast start for a new club in a league as physically demanding as the EPL. Hazard has shown that quality. When teammates like Juan Mata fully kick into gear and get even more accustomed to their new player, things could really heat up for Chelsea.
A rough patch may pop up eventually, something most likely occur around Christmas time where Hazard is normally used a break in Ligue 1, but if Roberto Di Matteo can help him navigate that period, he may not suffer a huge drop as others have.
With what he's done so far, he'll certainly have Chelsea fans thinking positively about that period and beyond.
