Video: Eden Hazard boosts his confidence by humiliating his three-year-old son
It's been a tough year if your name's Eden Hazard.
After winning the Premier League and PFA Player of the Year titles in his second season at Chelsea, many expected the Belgian to be the Blues' talisman once again as they looked to defend their league title.
As it turned out, Hazard's miserable season came to symbolise Chelsea's wider decline.
Embroiled in scandal after receiving treatment from Eva Carneiro, harangued by the Chelsea crowd for his sub-[ar performances and ridiculed on social media for his dismal record in front of goal: Eden Hazard had a season to forget.
Fortunately Hazard burst into life in the closing stages of the season to re-emphasise his world class credentials.
The 25-year-old's goal-of-the-season contender against Tottenham ended Spurs' title chase and crowned Leicester City champions and, since that game, the winger has been casually tormenting full-backs, midfielders and even his own son.
Hazard's three-year-old son joined the Chelsea players on the Stamford Bridge pitch as they embarked on a lap of honour following their 1-1 draw with Leicester City.
The infant flounders as he desperately tries to dispossess his father of the ball.
The Belgian sends his son flying to the ground with a textbook Hazard feint, before allowing the persistent child a touch of the ball; only to cynically trip him as he attempts to dribble the ball away.

Hazard junior's humiliating cameo on the Stamford Bridge was in stark contrast to Santi Cazorla's son, Enzo.
The five-year-old stole the show during Arsenal's end of season lap of honour at the Emirates, demonstrating step-overs and mazy runs before nonchalantly flicking the ball over Joel Campbell.
On this evidence, the future looks bright for Arsenal. Chelsea? Not so much.
