Chelsea star believes he is having a ‘great season’ but hopes to score more goals

Eden Hazard has been lighting up the Premier League since 2012, when he joined Chelsea from Lille for an impressive £32m and the Belgian wasted little time on making his mark in England, and has already won multiple honours.

The 24-year-old has already lifted both the Europa League and, most recently, the League Cup, while he’s also been voted the PFA Young Player of the Year, Chelsea’s Player of the Year, and has twice been included in the PFA Team of the Year.

He’s become an integral part of Jose Mourinho’s side, scoring 44 goals in 151 games in all competitions, including 16 so far this term.

He needs just one more to equal his best ever tally in a Blues shirt, and six to equal his best ever season – which came for Lille in 2011-12.

His individual success and coincided with an excellent season for the Blues, who are currently sitting comfortably top of the Premier League table, six points clear of nearest challengers Manchester City with a game in hand.

Speaking about his own prospects Hazard, who was quoted by the Daily Star, said: “I have become stronger in England because I play with and against greater players.

“I have to raise my level. I am gaining experience. It’s a big match every weekend, and each season I find new qualities.

“This season I score headers. Who would have thought it? I am progressing. I’m happy with my season, like I was with last season. I am continuing my apprenticeship.

“People expect Eden to score 30 to 40 goals a season. I don’t think about doing it. I’m not like that. If there is a point in my game where I still need to work, it is of course, to be more efficient — to play even more for myself, to score goals.

“But I am having a great season. Maybe I will have two trophies, and that will be great.”
