EPL: What Chelsea assistant coach, Zola said about Hazard

Maurizio Sarri had the luxury of leaving Eden Hazard in west London when Chelsea travelled to Greece to play PAOK Salonika on Thursday night, but the Belgian wonder is set to return to the starting XI on Sunday for the Blues clash with West Ham United at the London Stadium.

But Giroud got his chance against Cardiff and Hazard made no secret of his admiration for his teammate, hailing him as the world's best target man after the Frenchman laid on two goals for Hazard. He strongly believes Hazard should be considered in the same regard as of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Neymar.

'For me in this moment he is one of the three best players in the world so I'm enjoying playing with him.

"Of course he's the type of player that it can benefit him a lot because you have a lot of the ball, close the opposition's goal and in these conditions Eden can take a big advantage".

I don't know, maybe in a few years Eden can win the golden ball or another thing because he is a very good player.

Pedro also said how Hazard's impressive performance is helping the team.

"He had everything, he was the modern midfielder - scoring goals, defending well, tackling".

This is also very important for the team because he is a very important player for the team.

The former Napoli boss then added that he thinks Hazard can go on and score 40 goals this season. "It is a very good help for the team and when this guy plays like this he is very hard to stop". The words of appreciation for the Belgium star is coming from a player who spent 8 seasons with the Messi.

The Stamford Bridge outfit were compelled to remain due to bad weather conditions as the team were due to arrive London on Friday afternoon.

Last time out against Cardiff he netted a hat-tick as Sarri's men made it a flawless five wins in a row in the Premier League.

The Spain worldwide missed a couple of chances in Chelsea's 1-0 win against PAOK in the Europa League. On several occasions, Hazard has won club's player of the year.
