Ross Barkley has hailed Eden Hazard as a player capable of producing magical moments.
Hazard came off the bench against Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night to score the only goal of the game, setting up a two-legged semifinal tie against Tottenham in the New Year.
“The way we were playing you could see we had the belief a goal was going to come,” Ross Barkley, “and Eden got that goal and he can produce magic moments like that, and the team stuck at it and we came away with the win.
“Eden is playing very well at the moment, he is up there with the best in the world and he is capable of producing goals like that, like he scored in a previous round against Liverpool, and to play with a player like that is fantastic.
“He is relaxed but once he is on the training pitch he is magical,” Barkley added, “and he plays with enjoyment but he scores goals and he creates goals and he is a pleasure to play with.
“He plays with a smile and that is the way you have to approach the game, you have to be laid back and on game day, be ready to make things happen.”
