Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has applauded the performance by Eden Hazard in last night’s 4-3 thriller against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
The Belgium midfielder was in deadly form, scoring twice and setting up Frank Lampard’s equaliser as well with a perfect cross for the Englishman.
It was then down to Hazard to cause The Black Cats’ defence all sorts of problems as he made it 2-1 to The Blues and then in the second-half, he made it 3-2, before Phil Bardsley scored in both ends to end the game.
After the final whistle, Mourinho labelled Hazard’s performance as one of the best he’s seen.
Mourinho said: ‘The best. With me, the best.
‘Maybe last season, he did something similar or even better, but with me, the best.
‘The talent, we know, but the ambition from the first to the last minutes for me, it was the first time because he has a great talent, but sometimes he does incredible things and after that, he disappears from the game.
‘Today, he was fantastic from the first minute, getting the ball, taking on defenders, shooting. Sometimes he creates a lot, but doesn’t shoot; today the performance was fantastic.
‘He, [Juan] Mata and Willian, all of them, they were creative, they were dynamic, they gave to the team what we need in terms of creation in the last phase of the game.’
