Chelsea defender John Terry was full of praise for teammate Eden Hazard after the Belgian produced an excellent performance against West Ham United on Monday night.
The Belgian took the responsibility to take the penalty and he made no mistake, hitting the ball high into the roof of the net.
And the Englishman says the Blues are lucky to have him as they kicked off their Premier League campaign in style.
"It was very important to get off to a good start," the captain told the club's official website.
"The way we started and ended last season wasn't good enough by our own standards. We said before the game that whether we won lost or drew that was the type of fight and commitment we want from everyone.
"We dug in, it was a big London derby and it means a lot to players and supporters. It was great for the management to get off to a good start as well.
"He's [Eden Hazard is] up there with the very best in the world for me. We relied on him too much last season and he can't do it all on his own even though he almost does. He's a world class player and we're very lucky to have him."
