The Belgian also discussed his stunning goal against Liverpool
Eden Hazard joined Chelsea from Lille in the summer of 2012 and is one of the club’s undisputed stars. He is considered as one of the best players in the world after performing at the highest level over the past few seasons.
The Belgium International has scored 104 goals for the English side in 307 appearances. He has claimed two Premier League titles during his time in west London, along with FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League triumphs.
He had an impressive World Cup this campaign as he helped Belgium to reach the semi-finals and has made a stellar start to the new campaign.
The 27 year old has featured in all the Premier League fixtures so far this season for the Blues, scoring 5 goals and providing 2 assists. He scored an impressive hat-trick against Cardiff City and is the current leading scorer in the league alongside Aleksandr Mitrovic.
The winger was again in fine form for the London Outfit against Liverpool in the third round of Carabao Cup on Wednesday as he scored a stunning solo goal to win the match after coming on as a substitute.
The player has been heavily praised by club’s new manager Maurizio Sarri. The Italian claimed that he might be the best player in Europe and has the potential to score 40 goals this season.
Hazard has spoken about his stunning effort against Liverpool and also provided update on his contract situation.
“My goal against Liverpool was one of the best I’ve ever done. This is special because I scored it at Anfield Road, against a strong team like Liverpool. They had one every single game before the game against us and they were the favorites to win the game. When I was passed the ball, I immediately thought of scoring. I wanted to avoid penalties”, He said as quoted by Calciomercato.
“The win against Liverpool is good for our self-confidence, playing against Liverpool is never easy. Somebody thought that playing the League Cup game before the Premier League match would reduce the commitment of both teams but this didn’t happen. We fought until the 95th minute, neither teams wanted to lose.”
“New contract? I didn’t sign a contract extension and there are no news for now.”
