They may be rivals on the pitch, but Eden Hazard and Juan Mata are still clearly good friends away from football.

Hazard and Mata were opponents on Monday evening as Chelsea held Manchester United to a goalless draw at Old Trafford in the Premier League.

However, the pair looked to be in good spirits after the final whistle of the clash, as Hazard posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account on Tuesday morning.

Hazard uploaded the snap of the duo onto the photo-sharing app and wrote: “Always good to see you bro @juanmatagarcia”

Hazard has been struggling for form for Chelsea so far this season, with the Belgian yet to score a goal in the Premier League for the west London side after being named the PFA player of the year last term.

Mata has netted four times and notched up three assists for Manchester United in 19 games for Louis van Gaal’s men.
