"It's good to be compared with the greatest ever, Messi or Ronaldo", said Hazard.
"This means that we are talking about a fantastic player and for sure we have to pay great attention, but not only to Messi but Suarez is a fantastic striker and the whole team is very risky".
"But I am different, completely different".
"They have a defined way of playing and we have to take that into account", he said.
Messi and co are in London for tonight's game as Barca and Chelsea go head-to-head for a place in the last eight of the Champions League.
Chelsea's midfield: "We know their players, they have a very strong midfield, and it's not going to be an easy game for us at all".
Here are all the key details ahead of the big game. My respect for them is good, but once the referee blows the whistle I will always try to win my games.
While Chelsea enter the clash full of optimism, Barca goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen has warned that they are now an even better side following the world-record sale of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain for 222 million euros (S$361.8m) last August. "If I want to reach that level, I need to do a great game tomorrow", Hazard told a press conference on Monday. English teams this year are in incredible form, much better than in previous years. "He is a different player from the rest".
"And then to try with the ball to do what we know - what we try and do during training".
"They have been better in the last two games". Chelsea have a unique style of football, they know their game.
"The English style of football is very unique, very physical".
Antonio Conte needs Hazard to deliver a talismanic performance, with the Italian coach looking for a big result to ease the pressure on his shoulders and breathe new life into a testing campaign.
His withdrawal in the opening exchanges in the 3-0 loss to Bournemouth due to a sustained hamstring problem led to the Premier League Champions collapse and in the following defeat to Watford one week later their vulnerability without him showed again.
