Eden Hazard has been in cracking form so far this season. The Belgian is certainly enjoying life under Maurizio Sarri, after being linked with a move to Real Madrid all summer. The 27-year-old has already clocked up six goals in just seven appearances so far this season.
Hazard was at it again on Tuesday night as he came off the bench to score the winning goal against Liverpool at Anfield in the Carabao Cup.
While his manager Sarri and teammate Ross Barkley have already talked about Hazard in glowing terms, comparing him with the best in the world, it seems several more footballing giants have gotten on the bandwagon now.
Former Chelsea captain John Terry called Hazard ‘the best player in the Premier League and the world’ on his Instagram, and the post was ‘liked’ by both Carles Puyol and Eiður Guðjohnsen.
While such affirmation from footballing greats would itself be a high compliment to Hazard, what makes it even more prestigious is the fact that both of the players in question actually played with Lionel Messi at Barcelona. So, they certainly know a great player when they see one.
If Hazard maintains his form, there is absolutely no limit to what both he and Chelsea can achieve this season.
