Back in September 26 2018, Talisman Eden Hazard produced a moment of magic for Chelsea, as he came off the bench to scored the winner against Liverpool in 2-1 victory in the League Cup at Anfield stadium.
Maurizio Sarri was in charge of London club during that time, and despite it was crucial clash against the Reds, he benched Hazard but the Belgian superstar prove his value to his team.
The attacking midfielder produced world-class performances, operating from left-wing to role No. 10, threatening Liverpool back-line since introduced in the second-half of the game.
The best was yet to come with only five minutes on the clock, as Belgium star dribbled through the Liverpool defence to produce one of the goals of the season.
Slaloming in and out of challenges as he entered the penalty area from the right wing, once he found the perfect angle, he made no mistake, as he made it a bad night for countryman Simon Mignolet in the Liverpool net.
Hazard’s goal against Liverpool that night was one of the best of his career. Meanwhile, during his time at Stamford Bridge, he won the Uefa Europa League in his first season and the PFA Young Player of the Year in his second campaign with London club.
