Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard has revealed that he felt “like a ghost” during the 2015/16 season.

The Belgium international was reported to have fallen out with former manager Jose Mourinho but with the departure of the Portuguese – Hazard has rediscovered his best form and currently leading Chelsea’s charge for the premier league and FA Cup titles.

"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."

After Chelsea’s 4-1 FA Cup win over Peterborough on Sunday, Hazard said: "The league is important but the FA Cup even more as I've never won it," he added.
