Eden Hazard scores the winner in Chelsea's 2-1 Carabao Cup win over Liverpool

Brighton defender discusses what it’s like to play against ‘unbelievable’ Eden Hazard

Leon Balogun has hailed Eden Hazard after the Chelsea stars performance against Brighton last weekend.

Chelsea won 2-1 at The Amex Stadium on Sunday, with Hazard scoring once and assisting another in a man of the match display.

“He’s unbelievable,” Balogun told the London Evening Standard.

“We just spoke about it in the dressing room. He’s as quick with the ball as he is without it. His control is magnificent, so it’s very hard to…you cannot control him, really. It’s hard.

“You can get the ball off him if he makes a mistake. Most of the time it’s about delaying him – I think we did very well [with that].”

“He assisted one, but even that, it was a bit lucky because he shoots, the ball gets blocked, it comes back to his feet, then he has a little bit of an advantage, but then obviously he knows what to do with it,” Balogun said.

“He’s a world-class player.”

Hazard again proved to be Chelsea’s match winner last night when he netted the only goal against Bournemouth as the Blues progressed to the semi-final of the Carabao Cup.
