Chelsea fans react on Twitter to Eden Hazard's display v Galatasaray

Belgian attacker compared to the very best.

Cristiano Ronaldo put in yet another incredible display for Real Madrid in the Champions League last night, but is there a Chelsea man who is catching him up rapidly?

Eden Hazard's displays for the Blues have fans salivating, and last night against Galatasaray was no different.

The Belgian's stunning display saw him contribute nine successful dribbles - Ronaldo compelted just two last night for Madrid, and create four goalscoring opportunities - equal to the Madrid man.

Hazard could not score twice, or even once, by himself unlike Ronaldo, but the performance was a display to be proud of and a step he is heading in the right direction.

He was fouled six times by Galatasaray's defenders, notably by former Arsenal man Emmanuel Eboue, who was roasted by him all night.

A passing accuracy of 88 per cent was also the best in the Chelsea team apart from Frank Lampard (92%), illustrating that he knows when to play the ball and when to run with it.

His work rate was also praised by Pat Nevin on Chelsea TV, stating: "Willian and Hazard going forward, closing down their work rate was off the scale, you can see why Juan Mata was let go."

With a match against Arsenal at the weekend a crucial one, Hazard is hitting his stride at just the right time.

Here's what excitable Chelsea fans made of his sensational display, via Twitter:
