Real Madrid star Eden Hazard has named Manchester City right-back Kyle Walker as his toughest Premier League opponent.

Hazard spent seven years in the Premier League with Chelsea before joining La Liga and European champions Real Madrid in the summer of 2019.

When asked to pick out his toughest opponent in the Premier League, Hazard thought for a few moments and let out a deep breath before responding: “Kyle, Kyle Walker.”

Asked to explain his decision, he continued: “He’s strong, he’s fast, you know. I am strong and fast but he is stronger than me and he is faster than me.”

“As a right-back, he is, I think, one of the best at the moment,” Hazard added with a laugh as he spoke to ESPN.
