Ander Herrera has recently surprisingly labelled Chelsea’s Eden Hazard as the best player in the Premier League.
The Manchester United midfielder made the assertion with just a couple of days to go for the widely anticipated FA Cup finals to kick-off. The Mancunians are currently preparing themselves to square off with the Blues at Wembley on Saturday.
Disregarding the fact that Mohamed Salah stole the spotlight after seeing that he was crowned PFA Player of the Year and being awarded the English League’s golden boot with his 32-goal campaign, Herrera believes Hazard should certainly be considered as the best player in England.
“For me, Hazard is the best player in the league,” the United midfielder revealed on The Big Interview with Graham Hunter. “In my opinion, he’s the best player in the league, I’ve said that since my first day here.”

As regards to the best goalkeeper, the Spaniard had his eyes on the very same player any Premier League supporter would have – David De Gea. He accordingly proclaimed that his teammate is easily the best goalkeeper in the football world.
“For me, David is the best by far,” said Herrera. “I think he has something that comes from God. God chose him in the goal and God chose Messi on the pitch.
“You cannot train what he did against Liverpool [at Anfield]. You cannot train what he did against Kun Aguero when he was two metres in front of him and he put the hand out, you cannot train it.
“You can train when he receives the ball from the left defender and he passes the ball to Antonio Valencia perfect. You can see when he receives the ball he knows always what to do.
“He has some special abilities that I think he hasn’t trained them because you cannot train them, you just have them.”
