Eden Hazard is not concerned about the physicality of the Premier League, insisting that he is used to it.

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has revealed that he is confident he can cope with the physicality of the Premier League.

Hazard was fouled more than any other player on the pitch during his impressive debut against Wigan Athletic, but the player insists that he is used to such treatment.

"It doesn't worry me, I already had a taste of these kind of tackles in the Community Shield," The Sun quotes Hazard as saying.

"I was kicked quite a bit in the first half against Wigan, but in France it was already like that for me. I wasn't aware I was the most fouled player in the match - I wasn't counting them!

"From the start of the game you could see the way I play and the most important thing is I'm not injured."

Chelsea play on Wednesday when they take on Reading in their second Premier League fixture.
