Liverpool’s Robertson praises Eden Hazard “He’s in the world top five, a special player”

Liverpool full-back  Andrew Robertson has praised Chelsea star Eden Hazard as ‘special’ ahead of facing him for three times this month.

In fact the 24-year-old, who has been named captain of the Scotland national team, will face Belgium tomorrow in a friendly game, Chelsea then play Liverpool in both the Carabao Cup and the Premier League in the upcoming weeks.

“He is probably in the top five [players in the world] at the minute. I have come up against him many times so I know what threat he can have,” Robertson told Sky Sports.

“Even if he is having a quiet game, he can pop up at any point and turn a game. That is what we are up against.

“He is special. The way he turns and gets at players and commits two or three defenders, there’s not many that have that.

“He has been unbelievable for Chelsea and Belgium and it is somebody that we need to watch.

“The problem with Belgium is, you can’t focus on just Hazard because somebody else pops up. We have to be aware of all of their threats.

“We will be ready for them and do our best to stop them but we must cause them problems going the other way as well.”
