Fabregas believes Hazard can get even better than he is, if he becomes more selfish in front of goal.
According to team-mate Cesc Fabregas, Eden Hazard can become “unstoppable” and is second only to Lionel Messi in ability.
The Belgian has rediscovered his amazing form we saw in Chelsea’s last title-winning season, in 2014/15 and has played a huge roll in the Blues surge to the top of the Premier League table and towards a possible double after coming off the bench to help Conte’s side knock out Tottenham 4-2 in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley on Saturday.
“Eden can be whatever he wants to be,” Fabregas said. “Ability wise, there is only one player above him and we all know who he is: Messi.
“Sometimes when we have a counter attack and it’s two against two and he passes the ball, I tell him, ‘You have the capability to score by yourself. Do it’.
“He has to do it more often. I’ve told him many, many times, he needs to be selfish sometimes and have that killer instinct to score more goals. I hope – and I’m sure – he will improve in the future. And then he will be unstoppable.”
The Blues are currently four points clear of Spurs and, if they keep on track and clinch the title, they can clinch the double for the first time since 2009/10 which was under Carlo Ancelotti.
