Chelsea ace Eden Hazard makes Liverpool admission – ‘I love Anfield’ | Football | Sport

Hazard has faced Liverpool 16 times in his career, netting seven goals as well as two assists.

His most recent trip to Anfield came in the third round of this season’s Carabao Cup.

The Belgian scored a stunning winner as Chelsea knocked the Reds out of the competition.

And when looking back at 2018, Hazard admitted that goal is a top memory and that he has a lot of admiration for Liverpool’s famous stadium.

“I love Anfield,” Hazard told Belgian outlet HLN. “The stadium, the pitch, the atmosphere. I love to play there.

“I have already scored several goals at Anfield – always against Simon (Mignolet), sorry, but this one was worth it.

“One of my most beautiful goals ever. It had everything.

“And it was also one against a big club. That gives it extra exposure.

“I came on with 20 minutes to play. And I lost the first five balls I touched. I thought: Oh, oops, this is all going wrong.

“Until I started running and dribbling. I saw the gap and kicked the ball. Bam!

“The excitement was huge.

“After the match I have watched the goal several times. On repeat. I do that from time to time in the bus. The moments you enjoy.”

Hazard has been linked with a move away from Chelsea with Real Madrid favourites to sign the Belgian.

And pundit Jermaine Jenas has told him to quit Stamford Bridge.

“How good has Hazard been tonight?” Jenas said after Hazard impressed against Tottenham this week.

“Demanding the ball, going by players.

“I never thought I would say it, but he’s too good for this Chelsea team.”
