A barren run in front of goal coupled with a trophyless season at Chelsea has hardened the heart of Eden Hazard who appeared to take glee in leaving his young son, Leo, sprawled on the Stamford Bridge grass following a nifty bit of footwork.

PFA Players’ Player of the Year and the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year in 2015, Hazard has endured a campaign to forget in the Premier League this season.

Four goals in 30 top-flight appearances is a poor return for a player that managed 14 in 38 over the course of the previous campaign with many Chelsea fans concerned that the Belgian may never get back to his best for the Blues.

The 25-year-old certainly appears to have hardened in recent times, no doubt damaged by what has been Chelsea’s worst ever season in the history of the Premier League.

What other explanation can there be for his antics on the pitch following the Pensioners’ 1-1 draw with new champions Leicester? Evidently keen to show he still has “it”, Hazard decided to try out a few nifty moves on his toddler son Theo.

Worse still, when the young lad did finally manage to get on the ball, he was taken out with the kind of tackle that Jon Obi Mikel probably dreams about.

Hazard certainly took pleasure from the situation, which soon became strangely reminiscent of that bit in the mercifully short-lived CBBC show “Michael Owen’s Soccer School” in which the Liverpool great successfully scored past a 12-year-old goalkeeper.

With that in mind, it’s over to Neville Southall.

Couldn’t have put it better ourselves.
