Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba has stated that Chelsea forward, Eden Hazard, is currently the best player in the Premier League.
The Red Devils will travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon as the Premier League swings back into action following an international break, and Pogba has squared up to the threat of Maurizio Sarri’s men.
Chelsea are still unbeaten in the league and jointly sit at the top with Manchester City and Liverpool, while Manchester United will be hoping to carry on the momentum generated by a 3-2 comeback win over Newcastle last time.
Pogba has now singled out Belgium forward, Hazard as Chelsea’s standout threat, describing him the Premier League’s best.
“You can see this season [Chelsea] have a lot of possession obviously, they are winning, they have one character you cannot miss in Eden Hazard, they say he is on fire, this time he is probably the best player in the PL right now,” he told Sky Sports News.
“The team is going well, they have good results, for us we come back from the Newcastle game, 3-2 winning at home, we need points, so it’s going to be a tough one. I think they need points, we need points.”
“The game is going to be very hard, we’re playing away. It’s a Chelsea vs Man Utd game, you know, so it’s a big one.”
