Is Chelsea’s Eden Hazard worth more than entire Leicester team?

Chelsea star Eden Hazard is worth more than the whole of the Leicester City team combined, according to a leading fantasy football manager site.
The Foxes’ starting team for their victory against Burnley would fetch £28.34m compared to Hazard’s market value of £42.24 on Football Fanager – a price based on real transfer values across Europe using Opta stats.
And if you believe Chelsea manager’s Jose Mourinho’s valuation that his star is worth £100m ‘for each leg’, then it could be a choice between one Belgian superstar at £200m or almost four entire Leicester squads. The Foxes’ squad combined stands at £56.36m.
Leicester face Chelsea at the King Power stadium on Wednesday hoping to upset the odds and ease their relegation worries. However, they’ll face a Blues team that could be worth more than £260m, based on their starting XI against Arsenal last Sunday.
Looking closer at the statistics, it seems that money does buy happiness. The same 11 Chelsea players represent a tasty 7.8 Football Fanager points per £million of transfer value, while a struggling Leicester XI averages just 4.5 points per £million.
In fact, there are 17 Chelsea players who have amassed more points than Leicester’s best performer, Leonardo Ulloa, who has managed 74 points compared to Hazard’s 276.
