Jamie Carragher has singled out Eden Hazard as the best player in the Premier League following his brilliant start to the season with Chelsea FC.

The Belgian playmaker has been one of the top flight’s standout players this term and his fine form has helped the Blues to win all five of their opening five Premier League games.

Hazard has scored five goals and made two assists in all competitions to help Maurizio Sarri’s men move to the top of the Premier League table.

The west London side will now be hoping for Hazard to be one of the driving forces behind a Premier League title challenge this season.

The 27-year-old struck a superb hat-trick in Chelsea FC’s 4-1 win over Cardiff City in the Premier League on Saturday, and Carragher feels that the Belgian has been the Premier League’s top player for the last few seasons.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Carragher said: “I think Hazard is the best player in the Premier League.

“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 should say that, I think he should have won player of the tournament.”

Hazard will be expecting to feature for Chelsea FC when the Blues return to Premier League action with a trip to West Ham United on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues are currently leading the way at the top of the Premier League table after their impressive start to the new campaign.
