Eden Hazard is beginning to pick form gradually and former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp has been impressed with how Hazard has linked up with summer signing Alvaro Morata.

Redknapp also believes that Hazard is the best technical player in the Premier League and is only lagging behind due to the fact that he missed pre-season football.

“That’s what you are looking for, for those two to interact together because when this guy plays he is phenomenal,” the former Liverpool midfielder said on Sky Sports.

“I think the best, technical player in the Premier League that can win a game. He can take a game away from you.”

Redknapp was then asked by Sky presenter Simon Thomas: “The best players in the world are able to drag their teams through when the rest of the team are perhaps not at their very best.

“Is Eden Hazard able to do that for Chelsea?”

Redknapp responded: “Absolutely.

“When you look at the two times they have won the league, he’s been their best player. He’s phenomenal.

“Midweek he scored a good header here, two goals, he’s getting that confidence.

“It’s difficult, when you’ve missed a pre-season it makes it hard.

“When I missed it, you were chasing your tail a little bit.

“But you could see on Wednesday night, the flicks and the tricks and the skills and the little bit of injection of pace that he’s got that no one else has is coming back.”
