Chelsea’s Eden Hazard is the Premier League’s best player and not Liverpool’s red hot forward Mohamed Salah or Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, according to Man United’s Ander Herrera.
Liverpool’s Salah and Man City’s de Bruyne were the two most in-form players in the Premier League this season and were the leading candidates for best player for the season, although it was Salah who made a clean sweep of the seasonal awards.
The Egypt international won the PFA, FWA and Premier League Player of the Year awards beating Kevin De Bruyne to each of those awards, after scoring 32 goals in the top flight.
Salah broke the Premier League record after scoring 32 goals to become the highest scorer ever in the top division but that does not impress Man United star Hererra.
The South American claims he identified Hazard as the finest player ‘since his ‘first day’ in England, when he signed from
“For me, Hazard is the best player in the league. In my opinion he’s the best player in the league, I’ve said that since my first day here.
You can see when he receives the ball he knows always what to do. He has some special abilities that I think he hasn’t trained them, because you cannot train them, you just have them.”
