Eden Hazard was all smiles as he and some of his Chelsea team-mates met some young fans at the Bridge Kids Christmas party

Eden Hazard looked to be in good spirits as he brought some festive cheer to some young Chelsea fans in the lead-up to Christmas.

The Belgian playmaker was among the Chelsea players at the Bridge Kids Christmas party at Stamford Bridge on Thursday as Antonio Conte’s men mingled with some of the club’s young supporters.

Hazard has been one of the Premier League’s top performers this season and his fine form has been in stark contrast to his struggles last term.

The 25-year-old, like many of his Chelsea team-mates, struggled to produce consistent form last season as the Blues ended up 10th in the table and with their title defence in tatters.

However, Hazard seems to be rediscovering his top form under new boss Conte this season and has already scored eight goals and made one assist in the Premier League.

Hazard will be hoping to start for the Blues when the west London side look to make it 12 wins in a row in the Premier League in their Boxing Day clash with Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge.
