Conte's Chelsea > Mourinho's title winners - Hazard

Chelsea defender David Luiz has praised team-mate Eden Hazard for his wonder goal in Saturday's 3-1 win over Arsenal, revealing that it reminded him of former Barcelona star and Brazil icon Ronaldinho. The Belgian's performance levels lifted considerably after he was taken out by Shkodran Mustafi midway through the first half, with Theo Walcott the first Arsenal player to be embarrassed when Hazard turned him on the touchline moments later. "Look, I'm not saying I like to be kicked, but it's good for me to be in the game".

"Not many players can control the moment and take the defenders where you want to take them". I think I am a better player, more complete than I was.and I think we're in better form as a team. "Not just me. Two years ago I was on fire, you know".

GETTYChelsea's Eden Hazard is the most kicked player in the Premier League this season When people don't touch me, that means I'm not doing well. I think that Eden, at 26, is nearly in the flawless moment of his career and the system that Chelsea plays, which is the same as we play in the national team, has really given him a new breath of life. Then there's another two young brothers and we see them very often playing in parks in Belgium outside his house. "We were strong, solid, we created good opportunities to score and we enjoyed the game".

"I assume that Eden, at 26, is almost in the best minute of his profession and also the system that Chelsea plays, which coincides as we play in the nationwide group, has actually offered him a brand-new breath of life". Sometimes in the past I've gone through games where I've not touched the ball for 20 or 30 minutes.
