      A few weeks ago Hazard was apparently going to become the first player to dribble past Virgil this season. Didn’t happen.

      We then got drawn with Barca in Europe and the greatest ever player was apparently going to come out on top against the best defender in the world. 2 games later, still nobody has managed to take the ball past Virgil this season.

      So if we win the CL, surely this guy is a shoe in for the Ballon D’or.

      Turning 28 this summer, how many years at his peak do we have left of him? He is just an amazing defender.

      At least 4, barring injuries, I reckon.

      I think he’ll “bat long” Swab - physically he’s so lean and it’s so effortless.

      Could be 7 or 8 easily.

      Could easily go for about 5-6 years IMO.

      12 fouls committed the whole season, and 1 yellow card.

      Beast.

      Easy - he’ll be top notch until 36 (hopefully no serious injuries)

      If I’m thinking of the right player here...much like Nesta who never really declined with age.

      Pretty much the whole Milan backline:

      Nesta
      Costacurta
      Maldini

      What a team that was
