Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta has praised team mate Eden Hazard on his recent run of good form.

The Chelsea winger struggled on the field under Jose Mourinho but since Guus Hiddink took charge, Hazard has been playing much better, scoring goals in the last 2 rounds of the FA Cup.

Azpilicueta believes his new found form is like having a new signing.

“Playing like this, Eden is like a new signing for us. We are a stronger squad if we have Eden playing at his best and have a better chance to get good results.

“It is better to have Eden in his best form now than at the start of the season. It is at the end of a season when you are playing for trophies and we will try to win the two we are in.”
