Mourinho has challenged Hazard to fulfil his potential.
Hazard said: "I want more responsibility and more ambition. When you are a normal player you have to be happy if you perform OK, when you have actions during the game that show quality.
"But when you are a top talent you can’t waste that talent, when somebody gives you that talent. I think at this talent level he is somebody very above us.
"I want to give him that responsibility and ambition, for the kid to be better and better and to express himself on the pitch match after match.
"Don’t be up and down but to always be at the top of his game because he has the conditions to be a top player. This is what I want, whether I can get it I don’t know but he is working very, very hard. I’m very happy with the kid."
