Eden Hazard has launched a subtle dig at Jose Mourinho by claiming that this season under Antonio Conte is his ‘best moment’ since he joined Chelsea.

The Belgian won the Premier League title with Mourinho in 2015 but the Portuguese was sacked just seven months later following Chelsea’s poor start to the campaign.

Hazard was one of the Chelsea players who suffered a dramatic dip in form last season, but the 26-year-old has since thrived in Conte’s 3-4-3 system.

And Hazard believes the Italian is responsible for giving the team renewed confidence after last year’s woeful title defence.

‘Last season everyone knows I was not good enough,’ said the Belgian.

‘But you learn from your mistakes. I gave everything to come back and now I am in my level.

‘So I started this season well – fit, with no injuries and it is better to play when you are ready. I want to enjoy being on the pitch. So this is the key.

‘It is always a difficult to come back after a bad season, but the boss changed something and tried to give us more confidence.

‘This is the best moment for me at this club since I’ve been here. I’m happy.’
