Hazard ran into trouble with Mourinho when going AWOL earlier this term, but the manager has been happy with his attitude ever since.
"Eden was much easier than I thought. If it was easier than I thought it is his responsibility, not my responsibility," he explained.
"What I did was normal, the way he reacted was not normal. It was fantastic. His evolution is great. What I feel now with him is responsibility in every aspect. Against Man United I saw him make a fantastic tackle in our box. And then against Stoke I saw him with initiative not waiting for things to happen but making things happen.
"He doesn't feel the pressure and he isn't afraid to risk things. I want him to be a joker and it is good that he brings to his game this happiness. You cannot stop the top players having this extra thing in their game. That's not a problem for me."
