Trent Alexander-Arnold names Eden Hazard the toughest opponent ever

Eden Hazard

Chelsea winger, toughest opponent Alexander-Arnold has ever faced

LiverpoolStar right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has faced the best football has had to offer on his way to becoming arguably one of the best at his position in all of Europe, but according to the Reds’ stalwart, he’s a former Chelsea icon Eden Hazard who gave him more trouble when the fickle Belgian was plying his trade at Stamford Bridge.

Alexander-Arnold and Hazard faced each other for three seasons from 2016-17 to 2018-19 before the LOSC Lille academy graduate swapped capitals and moved to Real Madrid in the summer of 2019.

Hazard was at the peak of his powers in 2018-19 before his move to the Santiago Bernabéu, scoring 16 goals and adding 15 assists in 37 appearances for the Blues; the fifth season of seven possible in which the Belgian 114 times international had eclipsed the 12-goal mark for Chelsea.

At that point in his career, Hazard was an almost perfect combination of technical quality and tactical effectiveness while terrorizing all that challenged his supremacy. The two-time Premier League winner also helped the club to a pair of Europa League victories, and he will certainly go on to be one of the deadliest scoring wingers in Premier League history.

A career in decline

Despite the absolute dominance that Eden Hazard displayed week after week during his time at Chelsea, things have not gone as planned for the golden winger since his move to Real Madrid two seasons ago.

In a story that’s far from uncommon, his stint at a club with even higher expectations than the Blues has resulted in just 5 goals and 7 assists in 47 appearances for The whites. Hardly the return that the Spanish giants expected when they spent a whopping ~ £ 100 million to purchase their services.

Hazard produced some moments of grace last summer at Euro2020 for Belgium for Roberto Martínez’s Red Devils, but at the club level, La Louvière’s son is a shadow of himself.

Not all periods of dominance last forever, just ask the Romans, but if Trent Alexander-Arnold’s accolades are anything to go by, the effect Eden Hazard had on the Premier League during his brilliant spell at Chelsea will hardly be forgotten. .
