London - Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard has admitted that he was nowhere near his best last season as the Blues failed to retain their Premier League title.
In the 2014/15 season, which Chelsea won, Hazard was in brilliant form as he scored 14 goals and notched up 10 assists in 38 Premier League appearances. As a result, he was named the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year and Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year.
It was a much different story last season, though, as the Belgium international was a shadow of his former self as he only found the back of the net four times to go with four assists. To make things worse, Chelsea finished 10th place in the league standings.
"I was the best player two years ago, but last season I was like a ghost," he told FOX Sports. "I want to be the best again and win titles."
Meanwhile, Hazard was not used in his side’s 4-1 FA Cup win over Peterborough on Sunday, but despite this being the case, he is determined to see Chelsea feature in the final of the tournament as it is the one competition he has not won.
"The league is important but the FA Cup even more as I've never won it," he added.
Chelsea travel to the King Power Stadium next where they will face the Premier League champions Leicester City on Saturday as Antonio Conte's men will be looking to extend their lead at the top of the table.
Kick off is at 19:30 (SA Time).
