Such is the aura of Eden Hazard that even opposition players can’t help themselves but admire the brilliance of the little Belgian on the field.
A photographer caught something similar during Chelsea’s clash v Huddersfield Town on the weekend as one of David Wagner’s men was snapped being in total awe of the Chelsea star.
Right-back Florent Hadergjonaj looked thoroughly impressed as Eden Hazard provided the assist for Pedro for the 3rd Chelsea goal at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday.
Completely understandable but the Swiss might want to hold back his emotions a little on the pitch so as not to disappoint his own fans. Check out the funny picture below –
Everton fans can now rejoice as it seems the announcement of Lucas Digne is a mere formality now after the Catalan club dropped a massive hint before their International Champions Cup game against AS Roma last night.
It is not yet official but rumors online suggest Digne has already said his goodbyes to his Barcelona teammates and this bit spotted in the official teamsheet before their friendly against Roma further strengthened the notion that the Frenchman is soon to become Marco Silva’s latest signing.
Digne’s name was crossed out from the lineup with Everton written next to it, check out an image of the teamsheet below –
The World Cup of screamers continued on Thursday after Spurs talisman Christian Eriksen put Denmark ahead with the help of an absolute banger in the 7th minute in the Cosmos Arena, Samara.
It was a beautiful strike from Eriksen after Jorgensen produced a brilliant touch from a ball over the top and set up the Spurs man to volley the ball home, using the outside of his boot.
Spurs fans would be wishing chairman Daniel Levy pays the man what he wants – check out the goal from Eriksen below:
What an absolutely fantastic start to life on Twitter by James Milner!
Things got excited for Liverpool fans on Twitter on Thursday evening as they were treated to an unexpected news of James Milner revealing in his new account on the micro-blogging site.

Perhaps the world’s most self-aware troll or the literally the most boring person. Check out the tweet below –
Perhaps the best player on the pitch, Olivier Ntcham ran the show during Celtic’s brilliant 3-2 win against bitter rivals Rangers at Ibrox yesterday.
The new signing from Manchester City was rather fantastic on the day and sprayed the ball everywhere, thus allowing the likes of Scott Brown and Callum McGregor to get stuck in to the opposition.
Besides giving the Rangers midfield a football lesson, the Frenchman pulled off a neat piece of skill in the second half.
Just 22 years old, the future seems bright for Celtic. Check out the stunning roulette from Ntcham below –
Few things in life give Newcastle United fans as much pleasure as seeing Matt Ritchie devastate a corner flag after scoring a goal.
And that’s exactly what happened after the Scottish international struck the third goal during Newcastle’s 3-0 win against the Saints earlier today.
The Magpies were at their best throughout the match and the third goal just summed their brilliance on the day.
Jonjo Shelvey after some decent work outside the box, teed up Matt Ritchie on the edge, whose shot found the corner to make it 3-0.

Dele Alli whit all the right words as the Englishman took to social media after Tottenham Hotspur’ 2-1 defeat against Juventus in the second leg of the round of 16 Champions League fixture last night.
The forward expressed his disappointment in missing out from the quarter-final berth but claimed that the squad learned a lot from the campaign and vowed to come back stronger.
With the Champions League dreams ended, Mauricio Pochettino and his squad would be fully focused on the tasty top-4 race while aiming for a FA Cup triumph.

Everyone who thronged to Old Trafford for the Chelsea clash yesterday, witnessed the brilliant marketing ploy from Manchester United to promote their newly created YouTube channel.
Quite bizarrely, the Premier League giants had been the only club in the top tier of English football to not have a YouTube presence.
But that changed a few days ago as the hierarchy at United probably caved in to the lure of promoting their brand in the biggest video sharing site and additional revenue it might generate.
Check out how their YouTube channel was being promoted outside Old Trafford yesterday –
10 days of break in between matches has given a lot of time to Liverpool fans to get nostalgic about the crazy seasons they have had so far.
The Reds have not been goal-shy and have scored plenty of crackers while they have been at it. Mo Salah’s most recent goal in the 5-0 spanking of Porto in the Champions League comes to mind.
But a certain team goal from back in August during the second leg of the tie against Hoffenheim has been doing the rounds again because of its awesomeness.
Liverpool at their best with a lightning-fast counter-attack that rocked the Hoffenheim defence that night.
Made even better by this angle on BT Sport’s enhanced player, check it out below –
Even the Manchester United fans would admit that Romelu Lukaku is perhaps not as gracious with his first touch on the ball on many occasions but the amount of ridicule that gets dished out towards the Belgian for his first touch on the internet borders on ridiculous.
But the striker shut down the haters and broke away from the stereotype after he pulled off a brilliant first touch to take an Alexis Sanchez cross in his stride during the 2-0 win against Huddersfield Town on the weekend.
Besides the touch, Romelu Lukaku wreaked havoc on the Huddersfield defence as he scored both the goals on the night.
It seems the Belgian has now started to click with Alexis Sanchez as well, check out this passage of play from the FA Cup game below –
