Jamie Carragher makes honest admission about Eden Hazard at Chelsea

The calculations exclude Premier League debutants Huddersfield and Brighton, who have played only seven games apiece in the competition, but of the remaining 18 teams only Crystal Palace have failed to top two late goals per season.
Despite this, only one City player makes Liverpool legend Carragher's XI, in a team which is dominated by Chelsea and Tottenham stars.
And the best players in the league have also hit the ground running.
Carragher delivered his verdicts to the Daily Telegraph. The latter Carragher believes will be a future Player of the Year victor following his impressive start to the season.
"Alderweireld last season was the outstanding centre-back".
The former Liverpool defender picked Chelsea's full-backs, Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta to provide attacking options from the back, accompanied by Spurs defensive pair Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld in the middle. "Alongside him, Belgium team-mate Vertonghen was not far behind".
