The Chelsea defender sends birthday wishes to his team-mate Eden Hazard after the winger turned 26 on Saturday
David Luiz has sent a heartfelt message to birthday boy Eden Hazard after the Chelsea midfielder turned 26 on Saturday.
The Belgium international has been in stunning form in the 2016-17 season so far after managing to bounce back from a dismal campaign under Jose Mourinho and Guus Hiddink in the Premier League last term.
Hazard has scored nine goals and has made two assists in 19 top-flight games to leave Antonio Conte’s men five points clear at the top of the Premier League table despite their setback in north London mid-week.
Chelsea made the short trip to White Hart Lane in search of a 14th successive top-flight victory but Tottenham were 2-0 winners against the leaders thanks to Dele Alli’s goals either side of half-time.
However, Hazard appeared to be in good form despite that setback after Luiz posted the above clip of the Chelsea forward and wrote the following caption on his Instagram page:
“Happy birthday my little brother! God bless you! 👊🏻😉 @ hazardeden_10”
Chelsea are five points clear of second-placed Liverpool.
