Hazard warning: Eden can't wait to play alongside brother Thorgan for first time

Eden Hazard admits he can't wait to line-up alongside his little brother Thorgan for the first time ever when Chelsea kick-off the new season.
Older sibling Eden, 21, was joined at Stamford Bridge earlier this month by his 19-year-old younger brother, who joined the European champions just weeks after his high-profile 32million arrival from Lille.

Blues boss Roberto Di Matteo signed Thorgan for a considerable fraction of that fee from French second division outfit Lens but Eden believes he will prove to be real value for money for the west London side.
'Despite both of us having been at Tubize, we have never played in the same team,' Hazard told Chelsea's official club website.
'I hope I can play soon alongside my brother in the national team and also for Chelsea.'
Thorgan is looking to breakthrough to the senior Belgium side this year after impressing on the wings for the nation's Under 19s.

But Eden believes his brother is more adept in central midfield – rather than out wide where he expects to start the season for Chelsea.
'My brother is not the same as me because he is not someone who dribbles a lot,' Hazard added.
'He is more someone who has a passing game in midfield.
'He can play on the wings also but his best position is in central midfield, a number 10.'
