Ander Herrera has claimed that Eden Hazard has been the Premier League’s best player this season and admits it was not easy for him to keep him quiet during Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Chelsea.

The Spanish midfielder earned plenty of praise for his performance as he managed to keep the Belgian playmaker quiet during Manchester United’s victory over the Blues at Old Trafford earlier this month.

Hazard has been in fine form for Chelsea this season and has scored 15 goals in the Premier League to help them lead the way at the top of the Premier League table.

And Manchester United star Herrera believes that Hazard has been the English top flight’s top performing player this season.

Herrera told ESPN: “Hazard, for me, has been the best player of the season so far.

“It was not a very easy job for me but I think I did it right.”

Hazard will be expecting to start for Chelsea when the Blues take on Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon in their next Premier League game.
