Gary Neville makes prediction about Eden Hazard after Chelsea’s win over Arsenal
Gary Neville is backing Eden Hazard to get to the next level with Chelsea in the coming weeks and months
Gary Neville says Eden Hazard has the ability to develop into one of the best players in the world at Chelsea following his brilliant goal in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Arsenal.
The Belgian playmaker netted a superb solo strike to score Chelsea’s second goal as Antonio Conte’s men continued their march towards the title with a comfortable win over their London rivals.
Hazard has been in much improved form this season following his struggles last term as the Blued ended up in 10th place in the table.
The 26-year-old will be hoping to continue his improved form in the the last few months of the season.
And former Manchester United defender Neville has been very impressed by what he has seen from the Belgian in recent weeks.
Speaking to Sky Sports on Saturday, Neville said: “Eden Hazard has got the ability to go to that next level. That level when you put yourself in the bracket as one of the best three or four players in the world.
“He dipped last season and he has to maintain it.
“The likes of Ronaldo, Messi, Bale, Neymar – they deliver season in, season out. He’s got the ability to do that.”
Chelsea are now gearing up for their Premier League trip to Turf Moor next weekend to face Burnley.
