EPL: Hazard named toughest, best player… Former Chelsea winger, Eden Hazard has been named the best and toughest opponent by Liverpool right-back, Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Belgium International, Hazard won two Premier League titles, two Europa Leagues, one FA Cup and one Carabao Cup during his 7 seasons at Stamford Bridge.
He scored 110 goals and registered 81 assists across all competitions for the Blues.
However, life hasn’t been the same since he left west London for Real Madrid in 2019.
While at Chelsea, the Belgium captain was extremely difficult to mark with his speed and skill and Alexander-Arnold, who has faced a host of elite players in England’s top flight, named Hazard as the toughest.
“Eden Hazard, yeah,” Alexander-Arnold told Amazon Prime.
“The best by probably a little bit of a distance.
“Maybe [Kevin] De Bruyne, but directly against an opponent would have to be Hazard.
“Speed, agility, his awareness and his intelligence on and off the ball is unreal.”
