Manchester United Ander Herrera has claimed that Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard is the best player in the Premier League, regardless of Mohammed Salah’s emergence as the winner of multiple awards this season.

Salah appears not to have significantly impressed Herrera who firmly insisted that Hazard is superior in footballing abilities. This may be seen as mind games as both sides prepare to face each other in the in the finals of the FA Cup.

In the course of The Big Interview with Graham Hunter, Herrera opined: ‘For me, Hazard is the best player in the league,’

‘In my opinion he’s the best player in the league, I’ve said that since my first day here.’

Meanwhile, Herrera could be tasked with limiting the Belgian’s influence during the finals of the FA Cup in Wembley as he has been clearly instructed to do in the past going by events on the pitch.
