Eden Hazard was still reflecting on Chelsea’s winning start to the Premier League season on Wednesday evening after the midfielder opened his account for the 2016/17 campaign.

The Belgium international broke the deadlock minutes into the second half from the penalty spot after Michail Antonio was punished for some sloppy defending.

The 25-year-old’s opener was cancelled out by West Ham’s Wales defender James Collins but Diego Costa managed to rescue a point for the home side with a minute left of normal time.

Hazard endured a miserable 2015/16 Premier League campaign under Jose Mourinho and Guus Hiddink despite being named the PFA player of the year in the previous season.

But the Belgian forward appeared in a noticeably buoyant mood as Hazard reflected on Chelsea’s winning start to the Premier League season.

Hazard posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption:

“Great start at the Bridge on Monday, looks awesome in @easportsfifa too!! #FIFA17 #CFC #football #fifa #ad”

The Blues star scored 14 times in 36 Premier League appearances in Chelsea’s title-winning campaign in 2015.
