Frank Lampard believes that Eden Hazard is only going to get better for Chelsea this season and beyond.

The Belgian playmaker has made a strong start to the new campaign for Antonio Conte’s men after recovering from an ankle injury and he was in superb form for the Blues during their 2-1 victory over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Hazard, like most of his Chelsea team-mates, struggled to find consistent form in the 2015-16 campaign as the Blues crashed to a 10th-placed finish in the Premier League.

However, the Blues bounced back to form under new boss Conte last term as they won the Premier League title in style.

And former Chelsea star Lampard believes that Hazard will now only get better for the west London club.

Speaking on BT Sport on Wednesday night, Lampard said: “I don’t think we’re going to see that dip [in form like in 2015-16] again.

“I think from now we’re going to see him on an upward curve. Well, I hope so, for Chelsea’s sake!”

Hazard, who signed from Lille back in 2012, will be hoping to feature for Chelsea when the Blues take on Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

The west London side know that victory over Pep Guardiola’s men would move them level on points with Manchester City after seven games as they look to try and defend their title this season.
