Hazard Compared To Messi & Ronaldo After Wonder Goal

With Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard continuing his tremendous form with a terrific solo effort against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, the Belgian has once again drawn comparisons with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Africa Loses Another Talent To Europe

After coming on as a substitute in Chelsea's League Cup clash with the Reds on Wednesday, Hazard stunned the Anfield crowd with a moment of magic.

The Belgian skipped past a few players in midfield, played the ball out wide and received it again, then went on another mazy run before finishing emphatically past Simon Mignolet to help the Blues win the game 2-1.

Hazard's latest strike comes days after he was named in the FIFA FIFPro World XI alongside the likes of Ronaldo and Messi, who his former teammate John Terry has now likened him to.

"A couple of people recently are coming out and saying he's not kind of the finished article," the former England international said, according to AS.

"But, believe me, he really is and he's up there with Messi and Ronaldo, without a shadow of a doubt.

"I've seen him day in, day out for the last five/six years and he's a top, top player and he will only get better as well."

Hazard has now played seven times for the Blues this season, scoring six goals and assisting a further two strikes.

Do you think this could be the season Hazard maintains a world-class standard throughout? Let us know in the comments section below.
