Eden Hazard: Compare me to Messi or Ronaldo only when I reach their level


Chelsea star Eden Hazard has dismissed comparisons with Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Belgium international was one of the best players in last season's Premier League and will again be one of the highlights of the domestic league.

But he says his focus in on Chelsea's next game and to help the Blues retain the Premier League title.

"For people, Eden Hazard has to score three goals in every game like Messi or Ronaldo," Hazard is quoted as saying by FOX Sports.

"I don't know if I will reach that level one day but I try to give my best. It doesn't matter if I score or not, I just want to play a good game.

"Every year we try to win the league and the Champions League, but we know that this is very complicated.

"There are very strong teams, but before every season, we have this goal to win it.

"Arsenal is currently in good form and they had a good pre-season. Manchester United have recruited good players. [Manchester] City is still City. Liverpool is still Liverpool.

"The Premier League is always complicated. We never know what will happen. We will try to do the same as last year and be champions at the end."
