Eden Hazard Eyes Ballon d’Or Award

Chelsea playmaker, Eden Hazard, has admitted that he wants to win the Ballon d’Or prize next year.

The Belgian’s form dipped dramatically, after he won the PFA Player of the Year award, as the Blues clinched the Premier League title in 2014/2015 season.

Hazard has rediscovered his form under Antonio Conte and scored twice, as Chelsea hammered Everton 5-0 on Saturday .

The brace took his Premier League tally to seven goals in 11 matches this term, having only netted four times in 2015-16.

“Last season I was not good, so for me it was normal that I was not on the list,” Hazard said.

“But I want to come back on the list, and give everything to be on the list, not to be in the top 23 but to be in the top five.

“Yes, I want to reach that level.”

“Last season was difficult for me. I tried to be the same player that I was two years ago,” he added.

“But now I am trying to play like when I was a kid. I am enjoying playing now, my position is a bit different from before, I go inside more. It gives me more freedom, and I’m good for the moment.

“Conte has not change a lot, it is just that I have a little bit more freedom when we have the ball and without the ball.

“Because I don’t need to defend against the right-back, because Marcos Alonso is there. I just focus on staying in my position. And when I have the ball I have more freedom and I can go where I want to go, and be decisive.”
