"It’s simple, he's a special player"

Eden Hazard has named the three best players in the Premier League, and revealed who he voted for in the PFA Player of the Year award.

The Chelsea forward was named Player of the Year in 2015 for his performances as Chelsea won the Premier League title. This season, he has given his vote to Kevin De Bruyne, the Manchester City midfielder and Hazard’s international teammate with Belgium.

“I think there are three (best players in the league) – Kevin De Bruyne, Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane,” Hazard told Sky Sports.

“I voted for Kevin De Bruyne. He is the best. I could have also voted for Salah because I played with him and he’s my friend but Salah is more a striker than a player. Kevin has got everything. He defends, crosses the ball, assists and scores goals in big games. For me, he is the best this season. He’s fantastic. He’s clever on and off the pitch. He’s in full confidence as he’s playing in the best team in the Premier League this year. When he’s on the pitch with good players, he’s one of the best in the world. Every time he has the ball at his feet he can do something magic. He doesn’t score a lot of goals but he can create something with just one movement or pass. It’s simple, he’s a special player.”

Salah has scored 32 goals for Liverpool in his debut season for the club, and Kane netted 35 goals in 36 games for Spurs so far in this campaign. But Hazard is probably right, De Bruyne has been the best player in the Premier League this season, and will most likely pick up the award.
