Chelsea star Eden Hazard has insisted that he is still capable of performing at the highest level following his poor start to the season, according to reports from the Daily Mail.
After constant criticism over his recent performances, Hazard finally scored his first goal of the campaign in the Blues’ 2-0 victory over Arsenal during the weekend to alleviate some of the pressure.
And the 24-year-old, who was last season’s Player of the Year, is adamant that he has not lost his magic and is confident that his strike against the Gunners will only springboard him back to his best as well as help the champions out of their current slump.
“I am feeling good. Last year I had a good season. I have not lost my quality,” he said.
“I had a good game and scored a goal with a bit of luck, but that will be good for my confidence.
“After the complicated start to the season we’ve had we had to win against a good team.
“We won during the week as well and the confidence was close (to being fully restored). We deserved to win the match.”
Jose Mourinho’s men have only managed to accumulate 7 points from their opening five games, which sees them already trail league leaders Manchester City by 8 points.
The margin could have been even worse if West Ham United didn’t beat City at the Etihad, a result that pushed the Hammers to third on the table.
