Eden Hazard has recovered his good form under Antonio Conte.
The Belgium international is back to his best, and this can be clearly seen on the pitch. Eden Hazard has been far from his good form last season where he enjoyed his poorest season in the Premier League. He was far from the player that was voted PFA Player of the Year.
However, it appears that the player has managed to recover under the Italian manager and seems to be playing better on the pitch. According to some pundits, this is mainly to the change of formation that has been carried out by the Italian manager.
Indeed, Eden Hazard is given more freedom in the new 3-4-3 formation that is favored by Antonio Conte. This means that the playmaker is free to play on the wings or more centrally where he can influence the play better. Eden Hazard is also more open to shooting on goals, and this has resulted in four goals this season. This is not bad especially when you know that the player only managed four goals for the whole of last campaign.
Jose Mourinho had a bad idea of playing Hazard on the left, and this was clearly hindering his performance on the pitch. Hazard is not a winger, and he has to wait for his teammates to give him the ball before he can manage something on the pitch. However, with Conte, he is positioned more centrally behind Costa, and this gives him the license to play as he wants on the pitch.
Hazard said that he is happy at the moment and that he is playing without any pressure. He believes that his team can have a good season and that it is important that each player gives their best on the pitch.
