English football club Chelsea captain John Terry has hailed Eden Hazard's return to form and believes the Belgian midfielder is back among "the very best in the world".

Hazard endured a dismal 2015/16 campaign, failing to score in the English Premier League for 27 matches as Chelsea slumped to a 10th place finish - their first outside the top six since 1996.

Chelsea skipper John Terry is in danger of missing this crucial week for the Blues with the 35 year old centre back already ruled out of tomorrow's big clash with Paris St. Germain in the UEFA Champions League, and now Manager Guus Hiddink hinting that the player could well miss this weekend's FA Cup clash with Manchester City as well.

Terry picked up a knock in Chelsea's 5-1 win over Newcastle United at the weekend, and with French defender Kurt Zouma ruled out for the rest of the season, the Blues will head into tomorrow night's game with PSG without both of their first choice central defenders.

PSG extended their winning streak in all competitions to 9 games with an impressive 3-1 win over Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final 1st leg on Wednesday. The game started on a bright note for the home side with Lavezzi latching on to a poor clearance by John Terry to give PSG the lead. Chelsea, who started with no striker up front, levelled through a Hazard penalty. The game drifted for a while after that but David Luiz blotted his game by sending the ball in his own net. A late goal from Javier Pastore gave enough cushion for PSG for whom the only sore point is the injury scare to their talisman – Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Crystal Palace have dealt a massive blow to Chelsea's title aspirations by beating the Blues 1-0 at Selhurst Park thanks to a John Terry own goal. The result was a massive one for the Eagles with Tony Pulis' men edging ever closer to securing their top flight status by picking up their first league win against Chelsea in 24 years.

As far as Chelsea are concerned, Jose Mourinho's men have now lost back to back games on the road 1-0 and will head to Paris for their massive UEFA Champions League clash against Paris St. Germain with the knowledge that their title challenge in the Premier League is under serious threat and if they do not produce the goods in the Champions League, they could end the season without any silverware to show for their efforts.

One of the many quirks during Rafa Benitez's 'interim' term at Chelsea was the disappearance of John Terry from the pitch and from the limelight. The Chelsea captain made a mere 14 appearances in the Premier League last season and one wonders if Jose Mourinho didn't take over last summer, the ex-England Captain might well have been on his way out of the club. But since the 'Special One's' takeover, Terry has been a rejuvenated force, a fact highlighted by the 28 games that he has started this campaign. And, now the Metro reports that the 33 year old will be offered a one-year extension when his current deal expires at the end of the season.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has aimed his guns at Chelsea, following his side’s 1-0 loss to the Blues at Stamford Bridge last evening. The Spaniard said that the west Londoners’ familiarity with “every trick in the book” enabled them to edge out the Merseysiders in what was a tooth and nail fight for both teams.

Chelsea were unable to break an determined Everton side until the 93rd minute, when a Frank Lampard free kick enabled John Terry to nudge the ball past goalkeeper Tim Howard. The free kick was awarded to the hosts following a collision between Everton’s Phil Jagielka and Chelsea’s Ramires.
