Eden Hazard snubs Chelsea team-mates when naming Premier League’s three best players | Football | Sport


Antonio Conte’s side have experienced a drop off this season having been crowned champions last May.

But they’re still in the reckoning to finish in the top four and will be hoping to send a message to their rivals when they take on Premier League leaders Manchester City today.

N’Golo Kante, Cesar Azpilicueta and Hazard himself have been among Chelsea’s most impressive performers this term and will be out to make their mark this afternoon.

Hazard can’t vote for team-mates in the PFA Player of the Year awards but he doesn’t think the trophy should be on its way to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season anyway.

“I think there are three [best players in the Premier League] – Kevin De Bruyne, Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane,” the Belgian winger told Sky Sports.

“I voted for Kevin De Bruyne. He is the best. I could have also voted for Salah because I played with him and he’s my friend but Salah is more a striker than a player.

“Kevin has got everything. He defends, crosses the ball, assists and scores goals in big games. For me, he is the best this season.”

Turning his attention to collective trophies, Hazard insisted Chelsea have plenty to play for.

“We are still in the Champions League and FA Cup and we want to qualify for the Champions League next season,” he added.

“There are a lot of games to play; we’ll see at the end of the season whether this season was good or bad.”
