Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is adamant Eden Hazard is the Premier League’s outstanding player.

Courtois was stunned by the Belgian’s performance against Liverpool.

He said: “I think he was brilliant.

“I think Eden is a wonderful player and maybe the best in the league.

“If you saw, in the first half especially, how easy he gets past three or four people like they are cones it is amazing.

“We are not speaking about players who play on a lower level, like if you play in the FA Cup or League Cup, we play against Liverpool with top players and he passed them like it was nothing.”
