Hazard speaks on Chelsea's form this season

Real Madrid attacker Eden Hazard is pleased with the form exhibited by his former Chelsea since the beginning of the Premier League campaign.

The Blues parted ways with Hazard shortly after the previous season ended but they could not spend in the transfer market due to the ban imposed by FIFA.

Still, the west London side have benefited with Christian Pulisic joining them from Borussia Dortmund as part of the winter agreement while a number of young graduates have got the chance to impress under Frank Lampard.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Hazard said that he is delighted with how the Blues have performed since his departure and he is hopeful that the team can maintain their form through the course of the season.

"We all know Willian, Jorginho they are very good. Also with the young players coming through, it is great to see the club high and I hope they can stay there," he told.

Chelsea are presently positioned third in the league table and they are holding a nine-point advantage over the likes of Sheffield United and Arsenal, who are just outside of the Champions League places.

Following the international break, the Blues are scheduled to face Manchester City on the road and they have the chance to avenge the embarrassing 6-0 defeat last season.
