Gary Cahill lavished praise on hat-trick hero Eden Hazard after he inspired Chelsea to victory over Newcastle United on Saturday.

The 23-year-old’s treble at Stamford Bridge handed Jose Mourinho’s men a win which hoisted them up to the top of the Premier League table following Arsenal’s 5-1 drubbing at Liverpool.

At the moment he is producing some world-class football for us

Hazard has been one of Chelsea’s standout performers this season, scoring 12 league goals and notching up five assists in 25 top-flight appearances.

And defender Cahill was full of praise for the Belgium international following his match-winning display.

“Eden is a great player, he has great confidence as well and anything he touches at the moment is going for him,” Cahill told Chelsea’s website.

“He’s a young player getting better and at the moment he is producing some world-class football for us.

“In the first half when we didn’t play particularly well and the game was quite tight, you want that little bit of individual brilliance and Eden produced that for us with two goals in which he was heavily involved in the build-up and he finished them.

“He has adapted to the league very well, he is a special player and he thoroughly deserved his hat-trick.”
