Chelsea ace Eden Hazard has reaffirmed his belief that his ankle injury has helped recharge his batteries.

The Belgium international is beginning to return to his best level, with his brace in the 4-0 win over West Brom on Saturday taking his tally to five goals from his last six appearances for the Blues.

And Hazard said: “I am in good form. Since I came back from the injury I have been feeling good. When you miss football for two months, you just want to be back on the pitch, especially when you watch the players and your team is playing and doing well.

“It’s a bad thing to be injured, but I also think it was a good thing for my body to recover because I have played as a professional for 10 years now and I’d never had a big injury like this. It was the first time and it gave me two months’ recovery time. I’m feeling good now, the injury is in the past and I can concentrate on the future. The players help me a lot on the pitch and give me a lot of balls. I’m just happy with what I, and we, do.”
