Carragher reveals who he thinks is the best player in the Premier League

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has revealed that he rates Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard as the best player in the Premier League.

Of all the top players in the English top-flight Carragher reckons Hazard has been consistently the best over recent years and even suggested that the Belgium international was the best player at the World Cup in Russia earlier this summer.

Hazard has started this campaign in sensational form; scoring five goals and providing two assists in just three starts for Chelsea so far in the Premier League.

“I think Hazard is the best player in the Premier League,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

“What I mean by that is, De Bruyne and Salah were the best players last season. I’m talking over a four or five-year period if I think ‘who’s the man?’.

“I do, I think he’s fantastic. I think he was the best player at the World Cup. I think he should have won player of the tournament.

“The great thing that I love and say about every top attacking player is they can’t be bullied, they can’t be knocked off the ball.

“Me as a defender thinks ‘can I get at him? Can I wind him up? Can I do this? Can I do that?’.

“No, he’s too strong.”
