Eden Hazard was introduced in the second-half against Tottenham with the scores at 2-2 and Chelsea desperately in need of a savior.
The Belgian entered the pitch and scored a beautiful goal and assisted another; he turned the game on and Chelsea carried the day.
His teammate Cesc Fabregas has said that the only player that’s better than Hazard in the world is Lionel Messi.
“Ability wise, there is only one player above him and we all know who he is: Messi. Ability-wise he’s up there with the best,” said Fabregas.
“I’ve told him many, many times, he needs to be selfish sometimes and have that killer instinct to score more goals and then he will be whatever he wants to be.
“I’ve played with many players and sometimes when we have a counter attack and it’s two against two and he passes the ball, I tell him: ‘You have the capability to score by yourself. Do it’.
“He has to do it more often. He has to be more selfish sometimes, as all the top players are. I hope – and I’m sure – he will improve in the future. And then he will be unstoppable.”
