Eden Hazard had an Ankle Surgery during the summer, and had missed the first three opening Premier League games this season but made it as substitute, twice during the International Break.

The Belgian might make his return against Leicester this weekend but his international teammate Courtois believes that, he will not be in the same level as before and will need sometime to reintegrate into the team. 

"He is ready, he is doing well and is ready to play," Courtois told Sky Sports News . "But we cannot forget he was injured for four months, he had surgery.

"You cannot expect - if he plays on Saturday, which is up to the manager - if he gets minutes you will see his quality but maybe he is not at his top form like he was last season and you cannot forget that.

"You have to go little by little I think. We are excited to have him back and I was happy to have him on the pitch with me against Gibraltar and Greece.

"I hope we can see the best Eden Hazard very soon."

Chelsea had a tough time during this summer Transfer window and this was continually been made known by Antonio Conte's conversations with the media but were lucky enough to land Danny Drinkwater and Davide Zappacosta, which will both be making their debut against Leicester this weekend.

Chelsea had gone all out to reinforce the squad for their title defense and Champions League challenge this season but many of Conte's Transfer targets failed, Fernando Llorente (Tottenham), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Liverpool) and Ross Barkley (Everton)

"The market now is a bit crazy," said Courtois. "Really high prices for players who maybe don't have that value. It makes it hard for teams to buy players for the right price.

"But after all I think Chelsea did a good job and I think we have a good squad to face the season."
