Eden Hazard has told Cesc Fabregas that the Chelsea midfielder is not the only person to have told him to become more selfish as a player.

The Spanish midfielder recently urged the 26-year-old to be more ruthless in his attacking play rather than look for team-mates.

Hazard has been in superb form for Chelsea this season and his sparkling displays have helped Chelsea to top the Premier League table and reach the FA Cup final.

The 26-year-old missed out on the PFA player of the year award this season after his team-mate N’Golo Kante won the prize ahead of him.

Fabregas suggested that Hazard must become more selfish if he wants to hit the heights of the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

And the Belgium international has acknowledged the Spaniard’s comments.

Hazard told Sky Sports: “Fabregas is not the only one to say that to me.

“A lot of people say to me you need to be more selfish, but when I am on the pitch sometimes I prefer to pass the ball.

“I try game after game to be more selfish. I know it’s good for me to score more goals if I want to reach the level of Messi and [Cristiano] Ronaldo. I am working on it.”
