2. Goalscoring

Chelsea FC v AFC Bournemouth - Premier League
Eden Hazard creates more chances than scoring goals

Neymar is simply a better goal scorer than Hazard. At least, the stats back it up.

As of 2018, In 212 appearances Neymar has 129 goals. In 393 appearances Hazard has 117 goals. While that is a massive difference but that is not all down to the player. Neymar for the majority of his career has played with attacking managers. Eden, on the other hand, has had to play under Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte.

Neymar has played in Barcelona and now plays in PSG. Both teams are known to score tons of goals and hence he simply has had more chances to score goals.

Having said that, Neymar is a better free kick taker and has a better shot than Hazard. He is more selfish than Hazard too and hence a better scorer. Hazard is far too unselfish to be a great scorer.

Goals win matches and so that is one place Eden is not as good as Neymar.
