Eden Hazard "is very happy at Chelsea" and will be at Stamford Bridge next season, according to Guus Hiddink. Interim boss Hiddink, who will hand the reins to Antonio Conte after this season, believes Hazard will not only remain at Chelsea but is also adamant he can return to top form next term.

This time last year Hazard scooped the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) Player of the Year award: this weekend he finally broke his Premier League goal duck for this season.

Hazard scored twice in Chelsea's 4-1 win at Bournemouth - the other goals coming from Pedro and Willian, with Tommy Elphick replying for the Cherries.

"It's important that he's here next year," said Hiddink of Hazard. "He is very happy with everything at Chelsea. If he is fit he will be very important next season. I think he can regain the (PFA) award. He has the capacity."
