With the season coming to its end, Chelsea legend Pat Nevin has noticed the spark in Eden Hazard’s form of late and he believes it couldn’t have come at a better time.
Hazard has been excellent in the last few games for Chelsea, and Nevin is expecting that to play a role as Chelsea fight for a Champions League spot and FA Cup final trophy.
He wrote in his column for the official Chelsea website: “The timing of the recent run, in respect of wins as well as form, might leave us tantalisingly close but Eden Hazard’s form has blossomed again recently, in time with any luck for the FA Cup final.
“The pass for Cesc at the weekend was just the moment of genius we craved to enable us to prise the three points from Wales. With Eden firing, it all seems so different. On top of that at the weekend, the team defended not unlike we did for large parts of last season, especially when Swansea threw absolutely everything at us late on, which of course they needed to do considering their position.”
