Eden Hazard is enjoying the most productive season of his career so far, scoring eight goals and assisting four in 11 appearances this season.

Former Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack wants Maurizio Sarri to give Hazard even more responsibility so he can have more impact on the team.

“It is a good example when you see the best players and superstars in the team are happy,” Ballack told Goal. “How they perform is a good sign that something is right in the team.

“That the relationship is good, that the atmosphere is good. I always said he is an incredible player.

“From my perspective, he should have even more responsibility and even more impact on the team. Not just to enjoy the individual freedom which he likes.

“Players sometimes don’t want to have this heavy weight on their shoulders to carry the team or to get asked in certain situations to have that responsibility.

“I think he is the player who should do that in that team. If you understand how important it is for yourself and for your game and you can handle it, then it will transfer to the team and you will take the next step.”
