Eden Hazard has outdone one of world's best players in the following attacking area this term.
For his entire top-flight career, the 23-year-old has dreamed of being regarded in the same capacity as the Argentine international, and as a consequence of his recent performances, such comparisons are finally being made.

Hazard has proven a constant thorn in the side of his Premier League opponents, with his lightning pace and fancy footwork wrecking havoc throughout each and every appearance.
As such, he thrives when in possession in the final third, and after creating space in this attacking zone, he is more than capable of picking out a teammate, as the statistics suggest.
He has recorded just the one assist so far this term, despite fashioning 32 goal-scoring chances for his rampant Chelsea teammates - the seventh best total in the English top flight.
Clearly, if he continues this fine creative form, it won't be long until his efforts are more richly rewarded. With the likes of Diego Costa, Loic Remy and Didier Drogba playing alongside the Belgian, the assists will come.
