Mourinho: Hazard is a great talent



Following the Belgium International’s double against Sunderland, the Chelsea manager has praised his attacker’s ability and talent.  

Jose Mourinho had nothing but praise for Eden Hazard after his breath taking performance against the Black Cats which the former Real Madrid manager claims to be his best display of this season.

“With me, the best.

“Maybe last season he did something similar or even better but with me that is the best.

“The talent and the ambition were there from the first minute and that’s the first time I’ve seen that from him.

“He has a great talent but sometimes he does an incredible thing then disappears from the game and then might come back in the second half.

“Today, though, the performance was fantastic.” he added.

The Belgium midfielder helped Frank Lampard grab his fourth goal of the season, and scored twice in their 4-3 triumph over Sunderland on Wednesday. Hazard has scored 8 times in 18 matches this term for Chelsea and is profusely their ‘key player’ .

Meanwhile , Sunderland boss Gus Poyet did not hesitate to praise Eden Hazard’s performance . “He was unplayable, as a manager I haven’t come up against anyone like that,” said Poyet

Chelsea sits second in the Premier League table following Arsenal and will face Stoke City on Saturday .
