Chelsea: Eden Hazard laughing at Branislav Ivanovic trying to speak English will never get old
Chelsea fans will never forget peak Eden Hazard.
The Belgian winger has had a miserable spell at Real Madrid, his two years in Spain blighted by injuries, but for a lengthy spell during his Chelsea career he was among the best players in the world.
Hazard's 2014/15 season, which culminated in him winning the PFA Player of the Year award, was a particular highlight.
"[Hazard] has a real great speed, he can do things at top speed, and we've seen that," Chelsea legend Frank Lampard said about his former teammate in 2017.
"His skill on the ball, how he does it at speed, he's just a world class player."
Hazard was a joker at Chelsea
It wasn't just his dazzling skills that made Hazard a fan-favourite at Stamford Bridge.

Did Timo Werner score on his Premier League debut for Chelsea?
The winger proved himself to be quite the joker among his teammates, regularly showing off his comedic side.
There's the time he joked alongside Cesar Azpilicueta about his real reason for signing a contract extension in 2015.
He lost it at Ivanovic's English attempt
Hazard also loved to mock Chelsea players who hadn't quite mastered English.
Their former right-back Branislav Ivanovic can attest to that.
Back in 2015, as Chelsea's players attended Demba Ba's charity ball, Hazard burst out laughing as Ivanovic tried to deliver a message of support for the Human Appeal in English.
You can see Hazard trying desperately to keep it in, but he finally cracks.
We'll never get tired of seeing that clip.
Hazard has struggled at Real Madrid
Hazard left west London in 2019 for Los Blancos but he's struggled to stay fit, playing in just 30 La Liga games in his first two seasons at the club.
Indeed, there have been suggestions that the 30-year-old could return to Chelsea.
Thomas Tuchel isn't short of attacking talent but there's no doubt Blues supporters would welcome him back with open arms.
