Eden Hazard was all smiles with Thibaut Courtouis, Kurt Zouma, Loic Remy, Kenedy and Papy Djilobodji as the Chelsea sextet watched some NBA action at The O2 on Thursday night.

The Blues player relaxed ahead of another busy weekend in the Premier League as the Toronto Raptors eased to a 106-103 victory over Orlando Magic in the English capital.

The mood in the Chelsea camp looked remarkably more upbeat than in recent months following the appointment of Guus Hiddink as Jose Mourinho’s replacement in December.

And Hazard posted a selfie with his Chelsea team-mates ahead of their home clash against Everton at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

Chelsea are in 14th place in the Premier League table and six points clear of the relegation zone following a 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion in west London on Wednesday night.
