Chelsea star Hazard: To be best in world, I must score more

Chelsea star Eden Hazard is determined to improve his goalscoring record.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho feels Hazard can play at the same level as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Hazard admitted: "It is an aspiration for me. I watch a lot of games of Ronaldo and Messi and I try to be the same."

Ronaldo has 45 goals in 35 games for Real Madrid and Portugal this season. Messi has a mere 26 goals in 26 games for Barcelona and Argentina in an injury-hit campaign.

Hazard has just 15 in 43 for Chelsea and Belgium and added: "I want to score more, because sometimes I play well but don't score.

"To be the best player in the world, I have to score more.

"I think it's just in my head. I have to shoot more sometimes. I can make the pass or I can shoot and sometimes I make the pass, but I will work on it."
