|Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink has challenged out-of-form Eden Hazard to rediscover his "ego" to become a key player at Chelsea again.|
Hiddink was installed as Jose Mourinho temporary successor last week and has been charged with restoring the confidence shattered by nine Premier League defeats this term.
One of Chelsea's most potent and creative attacking forces last term, Hazard has been a shadow of his former self having failed to scoring for Chelsea in an injury-hit campaign.
The Belgian star could beat hip trouble in time to face Watford at Stamford Bridge on Boxing Day, and Hiddink is focussed on helping the 24-year-old revive the strutting self-assurance which saw him help the club to a dominant title win last season.
"He had a terrific season last year and it's also normal you can have a setback after that," said Hiddink.
"But I think he can be a key player again.
"He is a key player as captain of the national team in Belgium - but also here when he gets back into shape.
"He was unlucky to be injured recently, which was another setback.
"We need to get the ego back for him to perform."
