Chelsea ace Eden Hazard believes he is currently playing his best football since arriving at the club.
The Belgian international has endured an up-and-down couple of seasons at Stamford Bridge, winning the Premier League Player of the Season and PFA Players’ Player of the Year awards during the Blues’ title-winning campaign of 2014-15 before enduring a disappointing season last term.
The 26-year-old admits his and the team’s performances were not good enough last season but believes he is now back to his very best.
“Last season everyone knows I was not good enough,” he said. “But you learn from your mistakes. I gave everything to come back and now I am in my level.
“So I started this season well – fit, with no injuries, and it is better to play when you are ready. I want to enjoy being on the pitch. So this is the key.”
Hazard believes boss Antonio Conte, who took over the reins at Stamford Bridge last summer, has been key to the team moving eight points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.
He added: “It is always a difficult to come back after a bad season, but the boss changed something and tried to give us more confidence.
“This is the best moment for me at this club since I’ve been here. I’m happy.”
Chelsea are next in action when they host Swansea in the Premier League on Saturday and they are priced at 1.25 to win the match. The Swans are available at 12.00 and the draw is 6.00.
