Eden Hazard makes honest admission about Chelsea form, sets target for this season

Eden Hazard admits that he was like a "ghost" last season but now wants to win titles with Chelsea

Eden Hazard has admitted that he was like a “ghost” last season following his disappointing campaign with Chelsea.

The Belgian, like many of his team-mates, struggled to find consistent form last term as the Blues endured a season to forget.

Chelsea ended up in 10th place in the Premier League table, without a trophy and with their title defence in tatters following the sacking of Jose Mourinho back in December 2015.

The Blues’ sharp decline last season was in stark contrast to their campaign in the season before, when the west London side won the League Cup and Premier League under Mourinho.

Hazard has been in much improved form this season and he has helped Chelsea build a five-point lead at the top of the table.

And the 26-year-old has lifted the lid about how he really felt about his dip in form last term at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking in an interview with FoxSport, as quoted by Metro, Hazard said: “I learned a lot.

“Sometimes you are at the top like we were two years ago and sometimes it is difficult for everyone.

“For me, I was the best player two years ago, but last season I was like a ghost.
