Eden Hazard was in super form for Belgium as he captained the Belgium national team to reach the semi-final of the World Cup and ended up third having beaten England in the third place finals.
Hazard had scored in four consecutive matches – including a hat-trick against Cardiff City – before Chelsea dropped their first points of the season at West Ham, and he was again on fire in the Carabao Cup clash against Liverpool on Wednesday night.
Hazard has been hailed as the best in the world by Maurizio Sarri after his hat-trick against Cardiff, and now following his performance against Liverpool, Chelsea assistant boss Gianfranco Zola also hailed Hazard as one of the best in the world.
Hazard’s teammate Cesc Fabregas who has seen the 27-year-old do incredible things for many years now believe that the Belgian is in the form of his life.
“I have had some great moments with Eden on the pitch but maybe in terms of maturity, yes it is the best [form of his career],” he told the Evening Standard.
“He has always had the ability but he is at an age now where he feels he can be more dangerous. He knows when to pass more, when to dribble.
“His maturity has improved a lot and now he is scoring goals, decisive goals which we all wanted from him.
“When you see the top players, this is what they do. They make a difference in terms of scoring goals. I think he needed that to make the step forward and at the moment he is doing that so hopefully he can keep it up.”
