Many have been comparing Eden Hazard to Cristiano Ronaldo in recent weeks but those comparisons look a little silly right now.
The 24-year-old Belgian winger was completely anonymous during Chelsea’s 3-0 defeat to title rivals Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.
Jose Mourinho’s Champions of last season were completely outplayed by a Sergio Aguero inspired Manchester City team.
Apart from missing a glorious opportunity at 1-0, his only notable contribution was receiving a yellow card with 10 minutes remaining for a foul on Yaya Toure.
Eden Hazard was heavily criticised on Twitter and we’ve collated some of the best tweets below.
Chelsea should bring hazard on

Want to compare Hazard with Neymar & Bale? Be my guest, very probable. But to Messi & Cristiano? No, never. Go watch some hockey.

Since the Community Shield, Hazard has looked ever so bland and timid, early doors, yes, but not what he was this time last year.

Imagine Oxlade Chamberlain if he lost all his skill, Vision, pace, mentality and visibility. That’s Eden hazard.
