Eden Hazard was back to his best in the Blues’ 1-0 win over Norwich City on Saturday, and his growing confidence was most evident in a moment of effortless skill.
The Belgian has been heavily criticised for his performances this season, but has improved over the past few weeks, with the Norwich City game evidence of his growing confidence. Mourinho once again gave Hazard a free role, and the 24-year-old operated primarily from the centre, running at — and beating — defenders for fun.
In the second half, the Blues’ superstar pulled off a nutmeg with the sort of effortless arrogance that he seems to be playing with when at his best.
Here is a video of the Belgian’s individual highlights, including that stunning piece of skill (23 seconds into the video).
