Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he is a huge admirer of Eden Hazard following his brilliant start to the new season with Chelsea FC.

The Belgian playmaker has been one of the Premier League’s top performers this season and his fine form has helped Chelsea up into third place in the top flight table.

Hazard seems to be enjoying life under new Chelsea FC manager Maurizio Sarri and the Belgian netted his seventh goal of the season in all competitions on Saturday evening when he scored the opener in the 1-1 draw with Liverpool FC at Stamford Bridge.

The 27-year-old also scored a superb solo goal in Chelsea FC’s 2-1 win over Liverpool FC in the League Cup third round at Anfield last week.

And speaking at his pre-match news conference before Chelsea FC’s clash with Liverpool FC on Saturday, Klopp underlined his respect for Hazard: “I have the biggest respect for this player.

“I love it, what a player, wow!”

Hazard has netted seven goals and made two assists in all competitions for the west London club so far this season.

The Blues will now switch their focus back towards Europa League affairs and their home clash against Videoton on Thursday night at Stamford Bridge.

The west London side are aiming to break back into the top four this season after they finished fifth and won the FA Cup last term.
