Chelsea star Hazard is top five in world announces Liverpool ace Robertson
Liverpool left-back Andrew Robertson has hailed Chelsea’s Eden Hazard as one of the best five players in World football.
Hazard has started this season how he left off last year and has already netted two goals and added two assists in his opening four Premier League fixtures.
His performances for Chelsea has led to much speculation that he is the perfect replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid, with the Spanish giants ready to make a big money move at the end of the season.
And Robertson has admitted that he will have to be on his toes to stop Hazard at Hampden Park when Scotland meet Belgium in a friendly.
He was quoted on the Metro: ‘He is probably in the top five [players in the world] at the minute. I have come up against him many times so I know what threat he can have.
‘Even if he is having a quiet game, he can pop up at any point and turn a game. That is what we are up against.
‘He is special. The way he turns and gets at players and commits two or three defenders, there’s not many that have that.
‘He has been unbelievable for Chelsea and Belgium and it is somebody that we need to watch.
‘The problem with Belgium is, you can’t focus on just Hazard because somebody else pops up. We have to be aware of all of their threats.
‘We will be ready for them and do our best to stop them but we must cause them problems going the other way as well.’
Here is what we think.
Robertson is right as at this current moment in time, there aren’t many players in World football that are better that Hazard.
Hazard brings pace, excitement, goals and assists to whatever side he is in.
The young man will find it difficult to stay on the toes of Hazard and will most definitely need help.
