It's safe to say that Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard endured a frustrating campaign at Stamford Bridge.
For one reason or another, the technically gifted Belgium international failed to replicate the form that saw him named the Premier League Player of the Year for the 2014/15 season.
In all honesty, Hazard only started to show his best form during the final three or four games of the season.

It was a strange turn of events for a player that so much was expected of. Unsurprisingly, following a season of turmoil, his long-term future in west London has been the subject of debate recently.
It's far from certain as to whether he will line-up for the Blues under the guidance of Antonio Conte during the 2016/17 season.
Blues fans would, however, have been pleased to see him in good spirits during Chelsea's walk around Stamford Bridge following their final home game of the season against newly crowned champions Leicester City on Sunday.
In fact, a brilliant video has emerged of the wide-man keeping the ball away from his three-year-old son.
As you can see below, Hazard was hilariously ruthless when stopping his son from taking the ball from him.
Hazard even opted to trip the youngster when he eventually took the ball away from his dad's feet. You just have to appreciate the comical moment:
Hazard speaks out
Following Sunday's clash against Leicester, Hazard admitted that it had been a tricky season but insisted that the club will work hard to improve next term.
"It’s not easy to play as the champions, that’s for sure," Hazard told Chelsea's official website.
"We knew that and it started from the first match. We maybe lacked a bit of combativeness compared to the year before.
"Injury-wise it was a bad season for me. The team, and me personally, have finished it okay, and we rediscovered some form which unfortunately we didn’t show for much of the season.
"We and I have to start like that next season. We will all work together to try and be better."
One thing is for sure, the dynamic at Chelsea looks set to completely change this summer. It's going to be an interesting period for Hazard and co., who will surely be determined to once again prove their credentials next season.
Will we see the best of Hazard next season? Have your say below!
