Speaking in an interview with Chelsea FC’s website, Barkley said of Hazard: “He is up there with the best in the world.

“Day to day in training you see what he can do and he produces the goods like he did in this game, he is a fantastic player.”

Hazard will be expecting to start for Chelsea FC when the Blues return to Premier League action on Saturday with a home clash against Liverpool FC in the top flight at Stamford Bridge.
