The 25-year-old returned to the Premier League by joining Liverpool in July and is the competition's top scorer with nine goals in 12 games. "He's a top, top, top player. He did not get his chance at Chelsea – maybe because of the manager, because of the other players? I don't know," Hazard told reporters. "He has quality but in that period I remember we had me, Willian, Oscar, so for him it was not easy.

"He is a fantastic striker and this season he has scored a lot of goals. It is always good to play against a friend but Liverpool is not only about Salah. They have a lot of quality players." Champions Chelsea will travel to Anfield on Saturday, with Antonio Conte's men three points ahead of their rivals.
Hazard on Salah: “At Liverpool he is still doing well, so I think we need to be careful with him. I want to ask him for his shirt, for sure, on Saturday.”November 23, 2017
Chelsea have little time to prepare for the trip after beating Qarabag 4-0 in Azerbaijan in the Champions League on Wednesday but Hazard said they would be ready. "A lot of players didn't play on Wednesday and I played only 60 minutes and N'Golo (Kante) also came off, so we can be fresh on Saturday, even if the game is close," the 26-year-old added.
