Chelsea star Eden Hazard caused Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid team all sorts of problems as the Blues won Atletico Madrid 2-1 on Wednesday night.
Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard believes Chelsea might struggle to keep hold of Eden Hazard if he keeps putting in performances like this.
“To have that confidence and that aura about him, I think when he’s in that form, he’s the best in the Premier League,” Gerrard told BT Sport.
“I think it’s performances like that in this competition that if you keep producing them on a regular basis – and Frank [Lampard] won’t thank me for this nor the Chelsea fans but – the likes of the Real Madrids and the Barcelonas come knocking.
“Liverpool have got a similar problem with Coutinho.
“It’s performances like that that makes the real big hitters come.”
