2 key passes and 7 dribbles – Chelsea star superb v United

Eden Hazard Dribbling

Eden Hazard was his side's best player in Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday.


Voted last year as Chelsea’s Player of the Season, Eden Hazard continues to flourish under Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge.

The 23-year-old has previously stated his desire to reach the level of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, and step-by-step, he moves closer to achieving his dream. 

Week-after-week he excels on the Premier League stage and Sunday's match-up with Manchester United proved no different.

A class act, and constant threat with his running and movement, Hazard was Jose Mourinho's side's most dangerous player by far. The statistics reflect a truly brilliant performance.

The Belgian youngster excelled in various areas. He completed seven dribbles - more than any other player involved - and fashioned two key passes.

He should really have scored from his only attempt at goal, but for a fine save for Red Devils shot-stopper David de Gea. Nonetheless, the resulting corner led to the club's opener.

He failed to disappoint with his basic duties, completing 83.3% of his 36 passes. Meanwhile, he chipped in at the back, making one tackle and an interception.
