Former Tottenham star Andy Reid has heaped praise on the professionalism of Chelsea ace Eden Hazard.
Hazard proved the matchwinner in the Carabao Cup tie at Liverpool last night.
The 27-year-old has a reputation for riding tackles on the pitch, unlike that of PSG star Neymar who regularly takes a tumble.
And Reid believes that shows the difference in class between the two stars.
“It’s a skill in itself, getting your body in between the defender and the ball and the timing of it,” Reid told BBC 5 Live Sport.
“They are free-kicks, he doesn’t dive at all. They’re definitely free-kicks.
“We’ve seen Jordan Henderson complain and it is debatable but it is a free-kick.
“That’s what he [Hazard] is really good at and he does it week in, week out. He takes a lot but you always see him jump back up to his feet and keep going.
“He’s almost a complete opposite to Neymar in that respect.”
