Axel Witsel has hailed teammate Jadon Sancho as 'one of the best of his generation' after the 20-year-old scored a hat-trick in the second half of Sunday's 6-1 win over Paderborn.

"I think he's one of the best of his generation. He still has a lot to improve, to progress, because he is really young," Witsel told after the game and added:

"But I'm sure in his position, as a winger, he will be one of the best."

With his hat-trick today, Sancho took his goal tally to 20 in all competitions this season.
