Loftus-Cheek who has not had any opportunity to start a match for his side this season was at his best during the blues game on Saturday and scored a goal for Maurizio Sarri’s men.
The England man has scored five goals in his last six appearances for the Blues.
Hazard, having been impressed by Loftus-Cheek’s performance this season believes the 22 year old player has what it takes to become a top class midfielder.
“He’s a fantastic player. We all know. I’ve trained with him for five years,” Hazard told Sky Sports.
“I saw him when he was young, now he is not so young but he can still improve.
“But in the future, I think he will be one of the best midfielders in the country.”
