The Blues have been excellent so far under Maurizio Sarri
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 105 goals for the English side in 308 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 hit the ground running for the Blues, scoring 6 goals and provided 2 assists in the first 7 games. He scored an impressive hat-trick against Cardiff City and is the current leading scorer in the league.
The winger was also 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.
Former Liverpool star has claimed that Hazard is the best player in the Premier League and believes Chelsea winning the title this season would mainly be down to him.
“If Chelsea win the title this season, it will be partially due to their great manager, but ultimately because of the influence of Eden Hazard,” he told the Telegraph.
“Hazard is the Premier League’s best player.
“This judgment is based on the last six years, not the first six games of this season.”
