Top 3 wingers in the Premier League this season so far
The 2018-19 season of the Premier League has reached its halfway mark, and we have seen some very entertaining stuff so far. We have seen some brilliant wing play from players in the Premier League this season.
A winger is usually a player of great pace and dribbling ability who supports the attack from the wide positions. They provide crosses or cut backs which help the strikers score goals. A winger also does a lot of running, as he has to support the defense as well as attack. There have been some brilliant performances on the wings by certain players thus far.
Here are the 3 best wingers in the Premier League this season so far.
#1 Eden Hazard
The Belgian playmaker has been a player on song this season. He has been unplayable at times under Sarri's attacking philosophy. Sarri has played Hazard in two positions primarily.
He has been playing wide left and as a false nine through the middle. Hazard is a winger by trade, and has been filling in as a striker due to the lack of positive performances from Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud.
Hazard has been creating chances for fun, as he has been involved in 20 goals so far this season. With half of the season still to go, if Chelsea manage to keep the Belgian fit, they have a huge chance of ending the season in a Champions League spot.
In terms of stats this season, Hazard has scored 10 goals and made a further 10 with a passing accuracy of 83 percent. He has completed 62 of his dribbles, and given a total of 12 crosses.
