Eden Hazard is well and truly back to his best, and his good form has fired Chelsea to the summit of English football.
After struggling for form and fitness last campaign, Hazard has been quick out of the blocks this time around. The Belgian has fired home seven goals in his opening 13 Premier League appearances this term. His performances have played a considerable role in Antonio Conte leading his side to the top of the table.
Just how good his recent form has been has been revealed by Squawka and WhoScored, who are in agreement that he has been the best player in the Premier League so far this season.
With a total of 806, Hazard has the highest Squawka performance score in the Premier League so far this season. His nearest challenger is Philippe Coutinho with 589.
Hazard’s average WhoScored rating in the Premier League this term is 8.0, the highest in the division. In second place is team-mate Diego Costa with 7.8
The stats do not lie.
