den Hazard has insisted he is not at Chelsea to "show off" or be "a star" - and prefers to set up chances for his team-mates.

But the Belgian playmaker said he will always step up and win a game on his own if he is required.

The £32million summer signing from Lille has made a stunning start to his Premier League career to help the Blues to the top of the table going into Saturday's West London derby at QPR.

The 21-year-old is also top of the assists table after creating four goals in his first three matches - and that's not including the two penalties he has also won and his goal against Newcastle.

And Hazard claimed making openings for others is his main role in Roberto Di Matteo's side.

"I love to set up my team-mates," he said. "I am not here to be a star, to show off. I am here to play for the others, but if I have to try and clinch a game then I will.

"At Lille, coach (Rudi) Garcia made me play on the wing, which I liked because it means you are more free - you do what you want offensively even if you have to defend a lot.

"People will see me at Chelsea the way I am and judge me the way they want to."
