The Belgium international has been given a new lease of life under Antonio Conte’s replacement Maurizio Sarri in the 2018-19 season so far.
Chelsea FC were 4-1 winners against Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon after Hazard scored two first-half goals to cancel out Sol Bamba’s early goal.
The 27-year-old completed his hat-trick after half-time before his Brazilian team-mate Willian polished off a 4-1 win over the promoted side at Stamford Bridge.
Hazard has scored five goals and has made two assists in three starts and two substitute appearances in the Premier League in the current campaign.
Sarri described Hazard as Europe’s standout player following his impressive treble in the Premier League at the weekend.
While Jenas raved about the qualities that Hazard brings to the Chelsea FC team, the former Newcastle midfielder rubbished the suggestion the number 10 is Europe’s best player.
“Maurizio Sarri thinks Eden Hazard is the best footballer in Europe after Saturday’s hat-trick but I don’t believe Hazard is there yet,” Jenas told the Daily Mail.
“He’s a brilliant player, no question, in the ‘world class’ category, however you want to define that.
“He lit up the Premier League as soon as he arrived at Chelsea from Lille in 2012, and has been a major asset.
“You watch games and he does things that blow your mind.
“His technical ability is superb, his professionalism likewise, and he scores goals.
“But to say he’s the best in Europe now: in a word, no.”
The Belgian star missed out on a lucrative move to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the summer transfer window despite the former Lille man being linked with a switch to the Champions League holders.
