Chelsea will be playing against Barcelona next week in the champions league first leg knock stage.
“You know Barcelona have a guy who is not from this world considering the way he plays on the pitch.
“He’s different, a super-class, but this is not about one player, it is about the whole team and not about Messi.
“This season we are not the same as last season, of course, and they are very good but in the end it is a cup tie and you never know what happens.
“That’s why we love football. I’m pretty sure we can beat them if we play together. We’ll see.” Hazard told Marca.
