Eden Hazard spent seven years at Chelsea, and it didn’t take the Belgian a long time to wow the hearts of not only Chelsea fans but the Premier League as well.

Hazard has since made a switch to Spanish side Real Madrid, while Christian Pulisic was signed as a replacement.

Pulisic has been very impressive since the second half of last season, which has attracted comparisons with former Blue Eden Hazard.

However, Pulisic has now revealed that while it’s a huge compliment to be likened with Hazard, he doesn’t want to be compared with the former Blues star.

“It’s a huge compliment,” Pulisic told Chelsea’s official website . “As I’ve said before, Hazard was a huge player for this club and I’ll never try and compare myself to him, but coming from a guy like Paul Scholes it’s a big compliment.

“There’s no one obvious player I model my game on. I like to take a lot of things from different players. I’ve learnt a lot from Hazard’s game, from watching him and watching his highlights, and there’s a lot of players like that. I’m trying to learn every day.”
