According to José Mourinho, Hazard is at the same level as Ronaldo and Messi.
I’ve never seen Mourinho campaign for any player this hard before. I see what he sees though, the grace with which Hazard moves is a beauty to behold.
The 24-year-old has been nominated for the PFA Player and Young Player of the Year award after another fine Premier League campaign, notching 13 goals and eight assists in the competition alone.
Hazard who was the savior for Chelsea against United, scoring the lone goal that propelled them to ten points ahead of Arsenal, who they meet on Saturday.
“He’s a kid, but he is also a family man and he knows he is one of the three best players in the world, responsibility comes with that and he is coping with that responsibility,” Mourinho told reporters.
“If people want to be fair, he gets that award [Player of the Year]. But the award I want him to win is the Premier League. I’ve had lots of stars, but he’s the humble star. He’s a great kid.
“Physically, mentally he’s getting very, very strong. He understands his role. He understands his talent is fundamental for the team.”
A few more games to go and Chelsea will be crowned champions.
