Eden Hazard admits he may be in the best form of his career after another star turn in Chelsea’s 3-0 win at Southampton.
Hazard entered Sunday’s clash at St Mary’s top of the Premier League goalscoring charts with six in seven games, and added his seventh to put Chelsea 1-0 up on the south coast.
The Belgium captain dominated the game and set up Alvaro Mroata for the Blues’ final goal to cap an impressive team display, with Maurizio Sarri’s side temporarily going top of the table.
Hazard has been in superb form in the 2018-19 campaign, with highlights including a hat-trick against Cardiff City and a brilliant solo goal to knock Liverpool out of the EFL Cup at Anfield.
Following Chelsea’s win on Sunday, Hazard told Sky Sports: “I don’t know if I’ve played better (than I am at the minute), I’m just playing good football because we are playing good football.
“I want to keep doing it and keep everyone happy. We are enjoying playing well and scoring goals.
“The first half was not so easy, they missed big chances and then we have had a bit of luck for our first goal, but we controlled the match in the second half.”
