Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believe there is much more to come from Belgian star Eden Hazard this term, despite his sparkling recent form.
The 23-year-old has been the standout performer for the Blues this term, scoring 10 goals and putting in a number of spellbinding displays as Mourinho's side challenge on three fronts.
Eyebrows were raised when the West Londoners shelled out a staggering £32m on a player unproven outside of France, especially after a fairly slow start to his Stamford Bridge career.
However, Hazard has cranked his performances up in recent months and is now arguably the Blues' most influential talent. His boss has echoed these sentiments and hailed Hazard's improved work rate.
Mourinho said: "At the age of 23 to be where he is, we can only expect better.
"He has become - I don't say one of the best - but a good professional in training.
"He works very hard for the team. He's trying now all the time to be an influence in our game. He's getting this responsibility."
Following his recent run of form, the Belgian had been linked with a mega-money move to French champions Paris Saint-Germain, but any talk of a move has been quashed by Mourinho.
He said: "I think there's no chance that Eden is going to leave."
