Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard admits that Manchester City attacking midfielder Kevin De Bruyne is currently the best player in the Premier League.
The Belgian duo were teammates at the west London club for a brief spell before Kevin De Bruyne was sold to Wolfsburg for £18 million back in January 2014.
De Bruyne eventually joined The Citizens and is thriving this season under Pep Guardiola with three goals and nine assists in 15 matches so far. The former Wolfsburg playmaker also scored the winning goal at Stamford Bridge to secure Man City’s victory over Chelsea back in September.
During his interview, Eden Hazard has praised his international team-mate and labelled him as the best player in the Premier League.
He said: ‘Kevin is definitely the best player in the Premier League. He plays with a good team but that’s also thanks to him that they play so well. ‘The Guardiola system has been written on its own.
‘He has been criticised when he has played for Belgium, but I do not always think that’s fair. He always carries out everything and does his best. ‘He’s an excellent player for our team.’
