Eden Hazard has admitted that he is a huge fan of Mohamed Salah and admits that the Liverpool FC star never got the chance to prove himself at Chelsea.

The Egypt international has been in superb form for the Reds this season since signing for Jurgen Klopp’s men from Roma in the summer transfer window.

Salah signed for the Reds in the summer after having impressed in Italy, following his failed spell at Chelsea before that.

The winger failed to hold down a regular spot in the first team at Stamford Bridge and was eventually sold to the Italian outfit after being deemed to be surplus to requirements in west London.

Salah has been in top form for Liverpool so far this season and has already scored 13 goals in all competitions for Klopp’s side.

And Chelsea playmaker Hazard has talked up Salah’s talent ahead of the Blues’ trip to Liverpool FC in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Hazard is quoted as saying by Sky Sports: “He’s a top, top, top player.

“He did not get his chance at Chelsea maybe because of the manager, because of the other players? I don’t know.

“He has quality but in that period I remember we had me, Willian, Oscar, so for him it was not easy.”

Chelsea head into their clash with Liverpool FC looking to continue to climb the Premier League table, with the Blues currently third and nine points behind leaders Manchester City after 12 games of the new season.
