Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho hs lauded the attacking ability of star man Eden Hazard as well as paying tribute to his Brazilian attacking player, Willian.

Hazard turned in a superlative performance as Chelea inflicted a first home league defeat of the season on favourites Manchester City on Monday evening and the boss was quick to pay tribute to his starting attackers.

"He (Hazard) still has to improve but he is probably the best young player in the world, with the ability to get to the levels of Messi and Ronaldo.", according to goal.com.br.

"Give him time, and Willian and Schurrle and Salah too."

Willian played alongside Hazard at The Etihad as Mourinho only went with two attacking midfielders in an attempt to nullify the obvious threats posed by the hosts, and it worked as Chelsea sneaked to a 1-0 victory.

The pair were substituted after 90 minutes in an attempt to protect a fragile lead.
