Lionel Messi: Chelsea star Eden Hazard is the ‘Messi of tomorrow’, Kevin Keegan

Eden Hazard has been compared to the likes of Messi and the Argentine’s opponent Cristiano Ronaldo for years.

The Chelsea forward hasn’t exactly figured out how to achieve the goal-scoring numbers that Messi and Ronaldo acquire each year, notwithstanding.

Hazard has without a doubt been Chelsea’s standout player of the previous couple of seasons and played an instrumental role in both their Premier League title wins in 2015 and 2017.

However, the 28-year-old has been connected with a major cash move to Real Madrid this season and seems as though he could be off in the summer.

Furthermore, Keegan, who was speaking the BBC, is sure Messi can achieve the level of Messi in the coming years.

“I think Eden Hazard is the best player, 100 per-cent,” he said.

“He’s the Lionel Messi of tomorrow and he’s almost there now.”

Keegan proceeded to take note of that Messi can become Real’s key player throughout the next couple of seasons, beginning a ‘revival’ at the Spanish giants.

“I think he will leave Chelsea and probably go to start the revival at Real Madrid,” he added.

“He’s still young, can change a game and is the one player who really gets me off my seat.

“When he picks it up, he can go past two or three players and I’d have him above all of the others.”

Hazard can conceivably win his final trophy at Stamford Bridge with a success over Arsenal in the Europa League final on Wednesday, May 29.

Hazard has been involved in 31 goals for Chelsea this season in the Premier League with 16 goals and 15 assists.

Chelsea have just secured a top four position this term, implying that they will be involved with next season’s Champions League.


Champions League 2019: Barcelona troll Manchester United with a nervy tweet after 3-0 win

What’s the history?

Barcelona trolled Manchester United after their comfortable 3-0 win at the Nou Camp, which knocked out the Red Devils out of the Champions League.

In case you didn’t know…

After enduring a 1-0 defeat in the primary leg of the Champions League quarter-finals at Old Trafford, the Red Devils were given little chance of a rebound because of Barcelona’s staggering record at their home ground.

In the long run, the Catalan mammoths proved too a lot for the Red Devils, whose expectations of securing another comeback died when Lionel Messi scored twice in the span of five minutes in the first half. Two costly oversights from Ashley Young and David De Gea prompted the two goals, and United were everything except out soon after 20 minutes.

Messi was clearly happy with his brace.

“I was lucky [on the first goal],” he admitted.

“The second I had even more luck. But the important thing is that we achieved our goal of reaching the quarter-finals, which we hadn’t for a long time.”

“It was spectacular. This is who we are. We were cold and nervous for the first five minutes. I don’t know why, but then we took control.”

The Blaugrana captain presently remains the top scorer of the Champions League this season with 10 objectives and leads the race for European Golden Shoe with 33 alliance goals. The Argentine likewise finished in the Quarter Finals after numerous seasons.

The heart of the issue

Messi is head and shoulders over the rest in the present crusade and portrayed it by and by against Manchester United.

Minutes after their triumph the previous evening, the official Barcelona twitter account uploaded a picture of Lionel Messi alongside the caption ‘Messi at the wheel’.

The post was a brassy endeavor of mocking Manchester United’s serenade ‘Ole’s in the driver’s seat’, after the United boss rejuvenation since taking charge of Red Devils last December.

What’s next?

Manchester United will face Everton, Manchester City and Chelsea next in the Premier League. The Red Devils still have a lot to play this season as they fight to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League.
