Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini backs the Blues new signing, who also turned down the interests of Arsenal and Tottenham, to shine

Everton star Marouane Fellaini believes that Eden Hazard will face the same strength of competition at Chelsea than he would have had at Manchester United or Manchester City.

The Blues won the race to sign the Belgian starlet, who had also been linked with Arsenal and Tottenham and the Toffees midfielder believes that he is good enough to play at the highest level.

“Eden Hazard to Chelsea?” Fellaini told Belgian radio station RTBF. “It’s his choice, I think he would have played in every major English club because he is quality,” he said.

“He is a talent, and he knows it, I think Chelsea has not cheated on him. Will there be less competition in Chelsea as Manchester United or City? In a big club, there is always competition.”
