Eden Hazard was in absolutely breathtaking form against Newcastle United in the Premier League. The Belgium attacker ran riot, scoring two goals and generally looking unplayable in Chelsea's come-from-behind 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge against United, managed by their former manager Rafael Benitez.
Hazard's link-up play with strike partner Alvaro Morata was particularly impressive drawing gasps of awe from the Stamford Bridge faithful. His two-goal tally also helped him to equal the goalscoring record of the legendary Gianfranco Zola at Chelsea. Hazard now has scored 80 goals for Chelsea in his career.
The Chelsea were fans were full of praise for Hazard, hailing him as the best player in the Premier League. Here are some of the best reactions:
Debating who’s the best player in the Premier League? I’ll save you some time. All you’ve to do is watch Eden Hazard for 90 minutes, you’ll have your answer.— JM (@Mourinholic) December 2, 2017

Today reaffirmed that we *HAVE* to tie Hazard down to a new contract. Fuck Real Madrid. Pay him whatever he wants, build him a statue, rename Stamford Bridge after him - just keep him here. World. Fucking. Class.— Jamie Wilkinson (@parkedthebus) December 2, 2017
Putting Moh Salah in the same bracket at Eden Hazard is absolutely criminal, EH's been tearing up the league for years. Salah has only done it for a number of games.— CM (@ConteMindset) December 3, 2017
I'm not even a Chelsea fan but please don't ever compare Hazard to Sanchez again.— Henry (@ChinonsoOrji4) December 2, 2017
Hazard is miles better, in every aspect.
Eden Hazard has flourished in every system he has been played in since he came to Chelsea; from Mou's ultra conservative 4-3-3 to Conte's 3-4-3 and 3-5-2.— Whiskey Papi (@tawah89) December 2, 2017
Eden isn't a system player.
He is the system. pic.twitter.com/7x4A4bg1ZK
Eden Hazard is one of the best players in Premier League history.— Jamie Wilkinson (@parkedthebus) November 25, 2017
I think Eden Hazard is one of the top three players on the planet right now and I'm not really fussed whether you agree with me or not.— Jamie Wilkinson (@parkedthebus) November 25, 2017
On current form, Hazard is truly unstoppable!
