- Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas believes Messi is the only player better than Hazard
- The Belgian forward netted a brilliant goal in Chelsea's 4-2 win against Tottenham at Wembley
- The 26-year-old missed out on Premier League PFA player of the year won by teammate N'Golo Kante
Eden Hazard scored an amazing goal for Chelsea in their 4-2 win against Tottenham at Wembley on April 23.
The Belgian came from the bench to net the important 3rd goal for the Blues in a crunch FA cup semifinal clash against Spurs.
Hazard's brilliant performance helped Chelsea advance to the finals of the competition.
Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has played alongside Lionel Messi at Barcelona but believes Hazard will one day be a worthy successor to the 5-time Ballon d'Or winner and has advised the Belgian to be more selfish.
“Ability wise, there is only one player above him and we all know who he is: Messi. Ability-wise he’s up there with the best,” Fabregas said.
“I’ve told him many, many times, he needs to be selfish sometimes and have that killer instinct to score more goals and then he will be whatever he wants to be.
The 26-year-old missed out on 2017 PFA player of the year award which was won by teammate N'Golo Kante. Other players nominated for the award were Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Alexis Sanchez and Harry Kane.
