Eden Hazard came in for some real stick last season after a slump in performance.
With Chelsea struggling, they needed their big stars to stand up and help pull them out of the mire but few were there to do so.
As the season reached it’s end they suddenly woke up, none more so than Eden Hazard.
The Belgian started to look like the player that won the PFA player of the year in the previous season, his goal against Spurs will forever go down in Chelsea lore as the goal that put the final nail in their rival’s coffin.
At the Euros he continued to look decent despite Belgium underperforming badly and tonight as Chelsea went down to Real Madrid, the attacker again shone with a late brace as Chelsea almost overturned a 3-0 deficit.
Chelsea fans were overjoyed with the return of the old Eden Hazard and took to Twitter to sing their hero’s praises:
Eden Hazard is Eden Hazard again.
