Kevin De Bruyne is the best player in Premier League – Hazard


Chelsea forward Eden Hazard believes Belgium colleague Kevin De Bruyne is the best player in the Premier League.

Chelsea playmaker Hazard scooped the PFA and Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year awards for his displays during the 2014-15 season.

He has continued with the same brilliance in the new season.

Speaking ahead of Belgium’s friendly at home to Mexico on Friday, Hazard declared the fellow forward a masterclass.

“Kevin is definitely the best player in the Premier League at the moment,” he said.

“City are the best Premier League team and Kevin is an important player in [Pep] Guardiola’s system.

“It’s easy to play with Kevin because we’re good players.”
