Eden Hazard is one of the best players in Europe and the world for sure, said a happy Gianfranco Zola, after the Belgian international sent the Blues to the fourth round of the League Cup at Anfield.
Hazard produced a breathtaking display in the last minutes of the second half to send Chelsea through in the Carabao Cup.
And his goal after coming on from the bench for Chelsea proved “he is getting better and better he is doing the right things at the right moment” admits Zola.
Meanwhile, Hazard says the goal deserves to be in his top five goals.
It tough playing inside the Anfield arena , which is what makes the goal special admits Hazard.
The Blues player is the Premier League’s highest goalscorer and since experiencing a transformation under Sarri, he could nick in as much a 20 goals this summer.
Under Sarri, the forward now has acres of space to cut in deep in the opposition goal area, and pose a real threat.
“The goal was special and so was the qualification. It’s always tough to play here…I don’t know if it’s in my top five goals but it’s up there because it’s against Liverpool.” said Hazard.
But the 28-year-old added that the Blues Premier League clash with Liverpool, again, on Saturday is more important saying,”we have got to try and beat Liverpool on Saturday.”
