It takes great techniques, power, skill and endurance for a player to get past six players before scoring a goal, that was what Eden Hazard displayed last night in their clash with Liverpool in the third round of this season’s EFL Cup competition.
With the score levelled at 1-1, Maurizio Sarri and Jurgen Klopp are beginning to make their list of players to take penalty kicks until Eden Hazard proves to be a game changer for the Stamford Bridge outfits.
The Belgian got the ball, nutmegged Firmino, skipped past Keita, made Moreno bows at his feet before unleashing a wonder strike that found the bottom corner, leaving Mignolet helplessly.
The goal wasn’t just awesome because of the manner with which he scored, but because it came at the right time.
The goal has kept everyone talking as they couldn’t believe that Liverpool, who are yet to lose a game this season, could be beaten in such stunning manner.
One of the comments that got our attention was the one made by former Chelsea star John Terry, who believes Ronaldo, Messi, Luka Modric are far behind the Belgian in the pecking order.
Though Luka Modric was given the FIFA best player on Monday, Terry admits Eden Hazard is the best man for the award due to his blistering performance against the Reds last night.
The Blues legend took to Twitter to shower praise on the playmaker, claiming he is the best player in the world.
‘What a goal from @hazardeden_10 @chelseafc BEST player in the @premierleague and in the WORLD’ Terry wrote on his verified Twitter account.
Hazard is definitely the man of the moment as he has scored six goals in seven matches so far this season.
