Hazard calls Loftus Cheek one of the best midfielders in the premier league
I am super delighted to be in the same team with one of the prospective best midfielders in England at the moment says Eden Hazard who believes his Chelsea team-mate Ruben Loftus-Cheek is super talented and can be at the very top if he continues his good run of form.
The England international didn’t have the best of start to the campaign at Stamford Bridge, as he struggled to break into the squad despite a successful loan spell at Crystal Palace last season and performing well at the World Cup for England.
In his last six appearances for the Blues the 22 year old has scored five goals including the second goal in the 2-0 west London derby victory over Fulham on Sunday, and Hazard clearly thinks Loftus-Cheek has a bright a future, despite failing to start a Premier League game this season.”
The Belgian waxed lyrical about the player he has trained with him for five years, emphasizing that in the future he will be one of the best midfielders in the country.”
The former crystal palace loanee goal against Ranieri’s Fulham came at the end of a brilliant one-touch move which Hazard and Pedro were involved in and the Belgian believes it shows the quality Chelsea have in their squad.
