'How good has Hazard been tonight?

Belgian playmaker Hazard again impressed during the Blues' 1-0 defeat by Spurs in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final at Wembley, where he was deployed once more as a false nine by Maurizio Sarri.

"Eden Hazard is too good for Chelsea", Jenas told the BBC.

Problems in front of goal have not helped Chelsea's cause, with strikers Alvaro Morata (five) and Olivier Giroud (one) both well short of Hazard's 10 goals in the Premier League this season.

"I thought he was unplayable at times", he said.

"I never thought I would say it, but he's too good for this Chelsea team".

'I actually said (during the match commentary) that I think he is too good for Chelsea.

Jenas also insisted that Chelsea were the better side on the night and reiterated that Hazard is clearly a level above everybody around him at Chelsea.

The 28-year-old, contracted to Stamford Bridge until the summer of 2020, has continued to be linked with a big-money transfer to Real Madrid. "I think he has outgrown his position within that team", he added.

Hazard has won two Premier League titles with the Blues since arriving from Lille during September 2007, and helped the team to FA Cup success last season.

Modric, 33, was at a similar stage in his career to Hazard when he left Tottenham for Real Madrid in 2012, and has since gone on to win the Champions League four times with the Spanish giants and claimed the 2018 Ballon d'Or.
