Matt Le Tissier believes that Cheslea star Eden Hazard is the best attacking player at creating something out of nothing in the Premier League.

The 26-year-old has developed into one of the best attacking stars in Europe since his move to Chelsea from Lille back in the summer of 2012.

Hazard has won two Premier League titles with the Blues and was voted as the PFA player of the year in the 2014-15 campaign.

The Belgium international will be expecting to start for the west London side when Chelsea take on Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

And former Southampton star Le Tissier has picked Hazard in his top team in a combined 11 from the players in Chelsea v Manchester United and Manchester City v Arsenal.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Le Tissier said: “Eden Hazard has to be in there [the combined 11] as the player with the most ability to produce something out of nothing in the Premier League.”

Chelsea are preparing to take on Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon as they look to bounce back from the disappointment of their 3-0 loss to Roma in the Champions League last week.

The Blues are currently nine points behind leaders Manchester City in the race for the Premier League title this season as they look to defend their top-flight crown this term.
