Oscar claims Chelsea team-mate Eden Hazard can become best player in the world

The Chelsea pair have been in scintillating form this season.

Chelsea midfield star Oscar held a question and answer session with followers of the club on their official Twitter account earlier today. Several interesting questions arose, but it was one about his midfield team-mate Eden Hazard that provoked an interesting answer from the Brazilian star.

Here is the exchange in question, in which he claimed that Hazard can become the best player in the world.

The Belgian has been in sensational form this season. He and Oscar's combination play has left Premier League defences faltering and created countless of opportunities for Cesc Fabregas to find striker Diego Costa, who has been banging in the goals.

Hazard's talent has been well known for many a year. Chelsea won a battle to sign him from Lille and he is considered one of the best in the world.

At the moment he probably does not find the return of goals to find himself in the same bracket as the likes of Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo - even Sergio Aguero or Alexis Sanchez may be a notch above him.

But if he does carry on his current form their is little doubt that he will continue to push himself toward the mantle of best in the world.
