Chelsea Legend: Eden Hazard as Good as Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale

Eden Hazard should be considered on the same level as Real Madrid superstars Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, according to Chelsea legend Pat Nevin.

The Blues forward, who won the PFA Player of the Year award in 2015, has rediscovered his outstanding form this season, scoring five times in his last four Premier League games.

Former Chelsea striker Nevin believes his performance in the club's 5-0 win over Everton on Saturday has elevated the 25-year-old Belgian to the same level as the galacticos from La Liga.

"There were stunning performances throughout, with Eden Hazard showing precisely why it is not silly to ask whether he is capable of consideration alongside the likes of Gareth Bale and Ronaldo," Nevin said.

"Diego Costa was colossal and David Luiz bestrode the match like a world-class footballer playing against an under-11 side."

The resounding victory put Antonio Conte's side top of the Premier League momentarily, before Liverpool regained its place with a win over Watford on Sunday.

"This isn't to say Chelsea are going to walk away with the league title but at the very least it suggests this is a team that will be in the shake-up come May," Nevin added.

Chelsea will face Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium on November 20 after the international break.
