Eden Hazard has set the Premier league alight once again this season.
Having struggled last time out under the tutelage of Antonio Conte, the arrival of Maurizio Sarri has reinvigorated the magical Belgian.
Hazard has already netted seven times in the league while registering four assists.
He has been the driving force behind Chelsea’s unbeaten start to the season and will need to play a massive role if the Blues plan on dethroning Manchester City.
The Premier League is a far better place for having an in-form Hazard in it and he is simply a joy to watch sometimes.
The manner in which he torments defenders is rivalled only by a few footballers and his value to the Stamford Bridge side simply can not be understated.
He is one of the finest footballers to come out of Belgium’s ‘golden generation’ and if he continues on his current trajectory, could be one of their greatest of all time.
Hazard’s special pass for Belgium
The 27-year-old was in action again for his national side in a UEFA Nations League tie against Iceland on Thursday.
As expected he turned in a scintillating performance as the Belgians eased to a 2-0 win.
Michy Batshuayi scored a brace but it was a moment of genius from Hazard that really stole the limelight.
In the build-up to his sides second goal, Hazard produced a simply sublime pass to set Thomas Meunier on his way before the defender squared for a Batshuayi tap-in.
Watch the brilliant moment below:
That really is something special - there a very few players on the planet who could pick a pass like that.
Hazard showed incredible vision and technique to weight it perfectly for the on-rushing Meunier.
You can hardly blame the Icelandic defence for failing to deal with it.
While Hazard may not have got the assist, there is no questioning the fact that his contribution was easily the most telling in the move.
Belgium will next face Switzerland before Hazard’s focus will return to the Premier League as he hopes to propel Chelsea to an unexpected title run.
A couple more passes like that, and they might get pretty close.News Now - Sport News
