Cesc Fabregas believes Eden Hazard can go to an ever greater level at Chelsea FC.

The Belgium international got on the score sheet in their 3-0 win over Panama in their World Cup opener last weekend.

Hazard scored 12 times and made four assists in 34 games in the Premier League in the 2017-18 season.

The Chelsea FC number 10 netted five times in other competitions last term to score 17 goals in all four competitions.

Hazard has been linked with a move to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the summer transfer window following the Blues’ frustrating season.

The 27-year-old has 24 months left to run on his current deal but Chelsea FC are facing a crisis with uncertainty surrounding Antonio Conte’s future.

Fabregas believes Hazard can be an even better player, adding that the Belgian forward needs to show more than just his talent.

“Eden talent wise is top class,” Fabregas told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“The only thing he should realise, and I always tell him as well, he could be much more than this. Sometimes talent is not enough.”

Hazard moved to Chelsea FC from Ligue 1 side Lille in the 2012 summer transfer window.

The Blues finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last term to miss out on Champions League football.
