After appearing to totally forget how to play football last season, Hazard is back to his scurrying, ankle-nipping best, racking up 14 goals and five assists in a campaign that has Chelsea sitting clear at the top of the table.

"I've seen a new maturity from him this year. Not just on the pitch, off the pitch [as well].
