- The Belgium star excused himself as he named Mohamed Salah and three others
- Hazard has netted eight times in eight matches for Chelsea and Belgium in the new campaign
Chelsea play-maker Eden Hazard has revealed his four best players in the English Premier League.
According to a UK Metro report citing SPORTbible, the Belgium star, who has been in top form for Chelsea in the new campaign, excused himself from the race, but insists the quartet of Mohamed Salah, Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and N’Golo Kante are the best players in the English topflight.
Salah is currently experiencing a slow start to the new campaign, but was on fire last term, winning the PFA Player of the Year award after netting 44 goals for the Reds.
Equally, Manchester City’s midfielder, De Bruyne is another top performer after helping Pep Guardiola’s City claim the league silverware.
Argentine forward Aguero, who has scored 148 Premier League goals for the Etihad outfit, alongside Blues teammate Kante, a two-time Premier League winner that helped Chelsea to an unbeaten start in the EPL and Europa League, make up the four best EPL stars according, to Hazard.
“Maybe for you it’s people who score more goals, another one is not thinking about that. At the moment I’m good – if I’m the best, fine, If I’m not I don’t care.
“In the Premier League we have a lot of top players. [Sergio] Aguero is one of the best, [Kevin] De Bruyne is injured but he’s one of the best.
“Mo Salah was the best last year, N’Golo [Kante] in the team is one of the best so we have a lot of good players,” noted Hazard, who has netted eight times in eight matches for Chelsea and Belgium.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Premier League giants Chelsea continued with their impressive performance this season in the Europa League championship beating Hungarian club Videoton 1-0 on Thursday night, October 4.
The hope of all Chelsea fans was that Videoton would be annihilated at Stamford Bridge, but the club fought a good battle only for them to concede 20 minutes to the end of the match.
Cesc Fabregas lifted the ball up and Brazilian star Willian flicked it for Spanish striker Alvaro Morata to score the winning goal for Chelsea in the 70th minute.
Morata also had another chance to score the second goal for the Blues at the death, but his shot was well saved by Videoton goalkeeper Tomas Tujuel.
