Throughout the season we have seen a number of players standing out, making valuable contributions for their respective teams displaying their undying quality.
So here I have decided to carry out the fun yet excruciatingly difficult task of picking and ranking the best football players in the world right now.
#10 Eden Hazard
Watching Eden Hazard in full flow is one of the most beautiful sights in football. He glides past markers like they are nonexistent using his pace and acceleration. He is one of the best dribblers in the world if not the best. The Belgian completes 3.8 dribbles per game.
The winger is an ambidextrous footballer thus making him very difficult to defend against. He can cut inside and have a shot on goal or he can run to the byline and whip in a cross. The Belgian is Chelsea’s most important player and has scored 13 goals and provided 11 assists in the Premier League.
It hasn’t been one of the best seasons for Maurizio Sarri and his players but Hazard has impressed amidst rumors of a potential move to Real Madrid who are long admirers of his talent. It would be interesting to see if Hazard eventually makes a move to Madrid to realize his dream and weave his magic in front of the Santiago Bernabeu crowd.
