The Belgian playmaker scored his second goal of the season in Saturday's 3-0 victory over Burnley and said afterwards that the new manager is pushing him and his teammates to always be striving for more.
"He's tried to give us confidence," Hazard told Chelsea TV.
"He knows players because he used to be one. We had one bad season but we are trying to do better. He tries to motivate us and we are giving everything.
"He told me to sometimes to go inside, sometimes to stay wide and open up the game. He wants me to score some goals and make a difference."
