Chelsea fullback Ryan Bertrand has hailed goalscorer Eden Hazard after their draw with Europa League opponents Sparta Prague.

Hazard produced a magnificent finish with virtually the last kick of the game to set up a clash with Steaua Bucharest.

"We started the game well and their goal came as a surprise to everyone, but we said to each other on the pitch that we needed to forget about it and move on," said the 23-year-old to chelseafc.com.

"The most important thing was winning the tie, we left it late but we did it in the end.

"It was a fantastic goal by a fantastic player and it came as no surprise to any of us, it was a great display from Eden personally."
