Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has that the best player in the Premier League is from Chelsea squad.
Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard was not named Premier League player of the year this season. But Herrera believes that he is still the most talented player in the league.
Hazard scored 16 goals and provided 7 assists for the Blues in 50 appearances across all competitions this season.
“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,” Herrera told The Big Interview with Graham Hunter.
The Spaniard has also heaped praise on the ability of United teammate David de Gea.
“For me, David is the best [goalkeeper] by far. I think he has something that comes from God. God chose him in the goal and god chose [Lionel] Messi on the pitch. You cannot train what he did against Liverpool. You cannot train what he did against Kun Aguero when he was two metres in front of him and he put the handout, you cannot train it.”
“You cannot 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.”
Herrera is expected to start for United on 19 May as the Red Devils will come up against Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium.
