Eden Hazard shows some crazy moves on the pitch

It's been a good season for Eden Hazard so far. Not only has he recovered from his poor showing last season by chalking up five goals and one assist in 10 appearances so far, but he's winning his critics and doubters over once again.

The Belgian international was in such good form in October that he picked up the PFA Player of the Month award, beating the likes of Stoke City's Joe Allen and Arsenal forward Theo Walcott to the prize.

One of Hazard's goals came in the 2-0 victory over Southampton over the weekend (as did his one assist), but it was something else that he did during that game that really caught the eye.

Clearly full of confidence, the 25-year-old re-entered the pitch after the half time break showing off some of his dance moves to the techno track accompanying them back out.

Most will likely think of Daniel Sturridge as the Premier League's leading dancing footballer, but it now appears he has a rival for the crown in Hazard.

Chelsea fans and neutrals alike will be pleased to see Hazard back firing on all cylinders following a year in the doldrums.

During the 2014/15 season the former Lille man chalked up an impressive 19 goals and 11 assists in 52 appearances across all competitions as the club picked up a league and League Cup double.

That form also saw him pick up duel PFA Player and Young Player of the Year awards for his efforts.

However, 2015/16 was a frustrating time for him as he could only muster four goals and four assists in 43 appearances.

Added responsibility

But despite his struggles domestically, the absence of Vincent Kompany saw him handed the captain's armband by Belgium boss Marc Wilmots for his country's Euro 2016 campaign.

Hazard notched up one goal in the 4-0 demolition of Hungary in the round of 16, but saw his stay at the tournament ended by a spirited Wales side, who beat Belgium 3-1 in the quarter-finals.
