Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard appears to be in the form of his life right now and is thriving under the attacking style of manager Maurizio Sarri.

The Belgian has been lighting up Stamford Bridge with his dazzling performances and supporters are well aware of his ability.

He has now scored seven Premier League goals already this season and would love to increase that tally against Crystal Palace on Sunday, as he could play a role with a comeback from an injury.

But could he realistically challenge for the Premier League golden boot?

Hazard is currently joint-top of the scoring charts alongside Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, while the likes of Sergio Aguero, Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah aren’t too far behind.

The 27-year-old has never been a prolific goalscorer during his career and it could take a 30-goal tally to win the golden boot considering the types of strikers currently in the division.

But nobody can doubt his individual quality and the way he’s started under Sarri suggests he can reach a new level this campaign.

The Italian boss is keen to get the very best out of the superstar and adding a ton of goals to his game will take him to the next level.
