Hazard has netted nine times in 17 Premier League appearances in helping Chelsea to the top of the Premier League table.

Melchiot told Sky Sports: “I think some of the stuff that he changed is definitely making sure that everybody is fit.

“The key ones are the star players. You look at Hazard who is one of their top players was nowhere near the form he had the season before then.

“Now when you look at him playing he is so fit, so difficult to stop and it’s really very hard for players to play against him because it doesn’t matter where he plays.

“And the system as well helps him a lot because he doesn’t always have to do all the backtracking he used to.”
