Per the Guardian's Dominic Fifield, he said: "It's not difficult playing with this kind of player. He's one of the best three players in the world, and it's easy for me to play with him."
Hazard provided the cross for Morata's goal on Wednesday, with the Spaniard heading home to cancel out Antoine Griezmann's opener in the Blues' 2-1 win over Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League.
Football journalists Liam Twomey and Dan Levene highlighted some of the other moments he produced:

Atletico with two men close on Hazard, and he's still managing to beat both of them.2017-9-27 20:09:52
The Belgian has been eased back into action this term after being hampered by an ankle injury that required surgery in the summer. In his only other start of the season, he grabbed two assists against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup.
While it was hardly surprising he outclassed the Championship side, he was just as impressive against Atletico—and not just because he set up Morata.
The Daily Telegraph's Matt Law believed he was the best player on the pitch:

Hazard replaced by Willian with 8 minutes to go, but he's my man of the match no matter what happens now2017-9-27 20:24:44
His stats from the game, courtesy of Squawka Football, would support that conclusion:

The performance is an ominous sign for Chelsea's rivals, both domestically and on the continent, as the Blues are an even stronger proposition with Hazard fit and firing on all cylinders.
As to whether he's among the top three players in football, Lionel Messi, Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo might have something to say about that.
It's clear he's in the elite cabal of players jostling to contest those positions, though, and if he can continue to develop his fledgling relationship with Morata, he and Chelsea could be even more effective and he could perhaps cement his name into that conversation further.
