David Luiz says Eden Hazard‘s goal against Arsenal on the weekend reminded him of Ronaldinho.
Luiz praised the brilliance of his Belgian team-mate after the London derby.
Hazard scored his side’s second goal in the 53rd minute over Arsene Wenger’s side
‘It was fantastic, it reminded me a bit of Ronaldinho – it was amazing.’

Hazard’s international manager, Roberto Martinez, was also reminded of another Barcelona icon after the forward’s performance on Saturday.
Martinez told Goals on Sunday: ‘He reminds me a lot of Messi. Not many players can control the moment and take the defenders where you want to take them.
‘The way he uses the ball with his feet is sensational and what is surprising more than anything is his maturity.’
‘I think that Eden, at 26, is almost in the perfect moment of his career and the system that Chelsea plays, which is the same as we play in the national team, has really given him a new breath of life.’
