Eden Hazard looks ready for business as Chelsea jet off to the USA for their pre-season tour
Eden Hazard looked to be in a serious mood as Chelsea prepared to travel to the United States for their pre-season tour on Sunday.
The Blues are heading Stateside to continue their preparations for the new campaign under new manager Antonio Conte.
Hazard, 25, had been given an extended summer holiday following his involvement in Euro 2016 with Belgium in France.
However, the playmaker has now joined up with his team-mates as he prepares for his first taste of life under new manager Conte at Stamford Bridge.
Hazard, like many of his Chelsea team-mates, came in for plenty of criticism for his stuttering form last season.
The Belgian attacked struggled with form and fitness as the west London club were forced to settle for a 10th-placed finish in the Premier League table.
The Blues moved quickly to appoint Conte as Jose Mourinho’s permanent successor at Stamford Bridge after the sacking of the Portuguese boss back in December.
Hazard helped Chelsea win the League Cup and Premier League in the 2014-15 campaign.
