Eden Hazard says he is ready to explode when the Premier League season gets back underway - and that's all down to Jose Mourinho.

The Belgian has had an impressive start to the season and singled out Mourinho as the reason behind his form, claiming that he's never worked with a manager quite like the Special One.

The pair seemed to have something of a fractious relationship in the past, with Mourinho openly criticising the Belgian ace after Chelsea's Champions League exit last season, but they appear to have put that behind them. Hazard says although he's happy with his form he feels as though he can do much more - and Mourinho is the man to get it out of him. 

"Mourinho is the best coach in the world. He gives me a lot of confidence. Even after a bad game, he puts me right again," he explained.

"I like the way he gets you going as a player. There is a lot of respect. It's the first time I have known a coach who operates like this. The others tended to protect me. Him, he really wants my potential to explode - and he does everything to make it happen."


Hazard has been a key part of Chelsea's unbeaten start to the league season - and now Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock has claimed that the Blues capable of going the whole season unbeaten.

The last team to achieve that was Arsenal in 2004, and Warnock believes the Blues are capable of copying Arsene Wenger's Invincibles. So far Chelsea have not yet tasted defeat in their first seven league games, and will look to extend that rum when they take on Warnock's Eagles on Saturday.

He said: "When I look at the Arsenal team that did it many years ago and I think this is as near as you're going to get to a flawless team really."

"It's pretty solid everywhere but when you get [Eden] Hazard chasing back and tackling, you're not doing bad are you, really? There are not many weaknesses in the team."

Loan agreement

Any youngster joining Chelsea can expect to end up in Turkey - that's because the club have signed a new agreement with Besiktas. As it stands the Blues have 26 players on loan with Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem.
