Eden Hazard’s response when Chelsea forward is asked intriguing question
The Chelsea forward is asked whether he is back to his best form that Blues fans saw in 2014-15 season
Eden Hazard has played down talk of the Chelsea forward hitting the lofty heights of his Premier League title success in 2014-15.
The Belgium international has proven a key figure in the west London side’s title bid in the current campaign after a return of 13 goals and five goals in 28 games in the Premier League.
Hazard scored twice in Chelsea’s 2-1 win against Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night to help the west London side get their title bid back on track after a mishap at the weekend.
The former Lille man netted 14 times in 38 games in the 2014-15 Premier League campaign as Hazard helped Chelsea to secure the Premier League title under Jose Mourinho.
Asked whether the Chelsea forward is back to his best in the 2016-17 season, Hazard said:
“I don’t know [if I’m back to the level of 2014-15]. I try to do my best to win games and we have now eight games to play. We want to finish top and that’s my target.”
Chelsea will make the trip to Bournemouth in their next Premier League game at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Blues are looking to win their second title in three seasons.
