Eden Hazard has given his thoughts following Chelsea's return to winning ways on Monday night in which the Belgian scored a brace while Nigeria international, Victor Moses also scored to give the Blues a 3-0 win over bottom-side, West Brom.

Hazard believed Chelsea showed the character needed to overcome another shaky start versus Alan Pardew's basement boys.

 "We had two defeats but now we are back. We are Chelsea, we are the champions, we have to give everything," the 27-year-old told Sky Sports after moving on to 15 goals for the season.

"Sometimes it happens, you win and you lose. Last season we were champions. The most important thing is to work together, talk together and that's what we did.

 "We showed great character offensively and defensively."

Hazard credited Belgium assistant coach and former Arsenal great Thierry Henry with encouraging him to take more chances in front of goal.

"On the second one, when I go inside [from the flank], Thierry told me in the national team maybe I don't shoot enough," he explained.

 

"As you saw against Watford, I scored a goal when I shot [in a similar situation]. It comes with instinct. You don't think a lot, you just think about scoring."

 

Next up for Chelsea are home games against Hull City and Barcelona in the FA Cup and Champions League,
