Eden Hazard appears to like playing under Jose Mourinho. Since the Portuguese manager's return to Stamford Bridge, the Belgian has been in impressive form, scoring nine goals and providing seven assists in 21 Premier League matches.
He also has two goals in Europe and one assist in the FA Cup, suggesting he is set for a mightily impressive campaign.
Against Hull City, Hazard scored the first goal, setting the Blues on their way to a 2-0 victory. He had two shots in the match (one of which was his successful strike); he also played one key-pass to set up a goal-scoring chance for a teammate. His pass completion was 76% and he went on four dribbles during the match - more than any other player.
There is no doubt Hazard has been key to Chelsea's form this season, and after the match, we took to Twitter to see what the fans thought. Alongside plenty of praise from Blues fans, a Tottenham supporter also got in on the act, telling Daniel Levy to pay attention to what was happening at Stamford Bridge.
