Thierry Henry says the Premier League is lucky to have a player of Eden Hazard’s stature.

The Belgian forward has been in sublime form this season and helped Chelsea clinch the Premier League title on Friday night thanks to a 1-0 win at West Brom.

The 26-year-old has been a regular fixture in the Chelsea team this season and has scored 15 goals and made five assists in the Premier League for Antonio Conte’s men.

Hazard, like many of his Chelsea team-mates, struggled to find consistent form last season as the Blues ended up 10th in the table.

However, Arsenal legend Henry says Hazard’s influence in Chelsea’s title triumph cannot be understated.

Speaking to Sky Sports on Friday night, Henry said: “When you’re a player of his level, people don’t wait – you have to perform.

“This year he did. He had to do a bit less defensively but still worked hard.

“We all know the quality he has. I remember the goal against Arsenal unfortunately for me but I had to clap him because it was a hell of a goal.

“He’s an amazing talent. We should be happy to have him in this league.”

Chelsea will look to win a domestic double this season when they take on Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley later this month.
