Liverpool legend Graeme Souness believes that Chelsea star Eden Hazard will out-shine Mohamed Salah this season, according to report in the Times.
Souness says that the Belgian forward is the third best player in Europe after Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
“Mo Salah scored 44 goals last season, 32 of them in the Premier League,"
“Yet, if it was a straight choice between him and Eden Hazard, I'd take Hazard.
“I know Salah had a ridiculous season, but can he sustain it?

“Hazard has consistently done it in the Premier League for several years now.
“That's why I agree with Maurizio Sarri, Chelsea's manager, that he can score 40 goals a season and become the best player in Europe.
“For the past decade, I've told my youngest son, who's now 19, to enjoy Lionel Messi, the finest player to have kicked a ball, and Cristiano Ronaldo, who comes close to that description, too, in their prime because players like them
don't come along for every generation.
“Hazard is the closest thing to them out there at the moment.
“He's better than Neymar — he's more consistent and goes to ground less
easily — Antoine Griezmann and Gareth Bale, while Kylian Mbappe is still a few years away from his best," he told The Times.
