Eden Hazard scored a wonderful solo goal against Arsenal that sent the football world into shock, and his national team manager Roberto Martinez, has likened him to Lionel Messi.
“What he does is quite unique,” Martinez told Goal.
“It’s that acceleration and stopping and standing still. He reminds me a lot of Messi. Not many players can control the moment and take the defenders where you want to take them.
“The way he uses the ball with his feet is sensational and what is surprising more than anything is his maturity.
“I think that Eden, at 26, is almost in the perfect moment of his career and the system that Chelsea plays, which is the same as we play in the national team, has really given him a new breath of life.”
