Chelsea star Eden Hazard is not yet at his best despite his good showing thus far this season, the club’s assistant manager Gianfranco Zola has said.

Hazard has been in fine form since returning from the 2018 World Cup with Belgium where he clinched the bronze medal.

However, Zola believes that the Belgian who has thus far notched five goals and two assists this term still has much to offer the London side.

“Eden is a fantastic player and is getting to have more maturity when he plays so the results are mainly due to his qualities,” Zola told Chelsea TV.

“Of course he’s the type of player that it can benefit him a lot because you have a lot of the ball, close to the opposition’s goal and in these conditions, Eden can take a big advantage.

“I think he’s still not at his best. The more he plays in and understands the system, he’s going to be even more effective.”
