The Belgian arrived back in west London buoyed by his World Cup performances and has already shone under Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea.
His stunning start to the season has got many talking him up on the same level as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
Eden Hazard scores contender for goal of the season. It is a pleasure to be there. “I just want to enjoy my football and win games”.
On his winning goal at Anfield, ending Jurgen Klopp’s flawless start to the season, Hazard said: “It’s one of the most attractive goals I have ever scored”. When you see the top players, this is what they do.
The French midfielder was subject to stern interest from Paris Saint-Germain after he won the World Cup with his national team (h/t Express). The attacking players benefit of that. Still, the hosts created more than enough chances to have finished off a Blues side that – predictably – was chalk full of changes. The Spaniard returned the ball to advancing Hazard, who went past three players, cut inside and sent a shot across goalkeeper Simon Mignolet and into the net. They make a difference in terms of scoring goals.
“Besides that, he’s an Italian. They came back into the game after the free-kick and then my fellow countryman made a great goal, which is very, very disappointing but we have to learn from it, take it forward and make sure it doesn’t happen again on Saturday”.
Hazard added that his match-winning effort is one of the best strikes of his career. The atmosphere is fantastic, from the Chelsea fans also who were awesome.
According to Neil Jones, Klopp says the exchange between himself and his wide man was simply because he wanted him to play in Mo Salah with a free-kick Liverpool had in the last second of the game. I believe I can.
“I think Keita, the way he played for Leipzig, he’s literally dropped in and played for a Liverpool team how he was”.
The Belgium worldwide had wanted to leave Liverpool in the summer in search of first-team football, but the club would not sanction his departure after Loris Karius joined Besiktas on loan.
