- Carragher says Chelsea star Eden Hazard is the best in the Premier League
- Hazard scored the winning goal for the Blues against Liverpool in the EFL Cup
- Jamie believes the likes of Salah, Silva, Aguero can challenge Eden Hazard this term
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has explained that Belgium international Eden Hazard is the best player in the Premier League after scoring against his former club in the Carabao Cup.
Eden Hazard came off the bench in the midweek to score the goal that sent Liverpool out of the 2018 League Cup as they were beaten 2-1 by Chelsea.
Jamie Carragher has now praised the Belgian as he also named the other five players who can challenge Eden Hazard this season.
"He has the capacity to make you shout 'wow' as I did when he scored the goal that knocked Liverpool out of the Carabao Cup.
"There are outstanding rivals worthy of inclusion in this debate; Kevin De Bruyne, Mohamed Salah, Sergio Aguero, Harry Kane and David Silva are among the best.
“Hazard brings something the others do not – dribbling ability, running at pace, beating several men from deep before delivering a spectacular finish,'' he said according to Mirror UK.
Eden Hazard is expected to continue with his rich vein of form on Saturday in his side's next Premier League game against Liverpool.
