Besides his woeful season last campaign, Eden Hazard has been a big hit since he signed for Chelsea in 2012, and he continues to thrill fans with his skills and tricks, season after season.

You might be tempted to think that the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar have had more successful dribbles than Hazard, but stats suggest otherwise.

According to stats provided by Stats guru Squawka, the 26-year-old has completed more take-ons than any other player in Europe’s top 5 leagues since the 2014/2015 campaign, with 388.

Neymar is just behind him on 366, with Messi just three off his team-mate with 363 in third place. Surprisingly, Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha is fourth with 31.

When Hazard is on fire, there’s none stopping him.
