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”
