According to Belgium assistant coach Graeme Jones, Chelsea star Eden Hazard is on the same level as Lionel Messi because Hazard can win a match on his own.

“If you look at the FA Cup Final between Chelsea and Manchester United, Eden won the trophy on his own for Chelsea that day,” Jones said as quoted on Evening Standard.

“They won 1-0, Eden won the penalty and then scored it, and He is at that stage in his career where he has become a match-winner. There aren’t many in international football. Messi is also one of them.”

Jones added: “Eden is at his peak. He is fit, mentally strong, he has experience and is comfortable with his game.

“He is at such a level that before a game he can say: ‘I’ll make this match my own’.”
