Juan Mata: Eden Hazard, Premier League’s Best Footballer

Eden Hazard has been described as the best player ever seen in the history of the Premier League by his former teammate from Chelsea, Juan Mata. The forward from Belgium recently completed a move last summer from Stamford Bridge with a fee of £88.5m to Real Madrid, the European champions for 13 times. Eden Hazard has 85 goals in his name out of 245 appearances and has assisted 54. He has two Premier League titles in the seasons 2014-15 and 2016-17. His association with the Blues came to an end. He received the winners’ medals for two Premier League seasons and also the Player of the Year given by the PFA Players group in 2015.


Hazard has always been a left-sided forward predominantly, though he was capable of playing in different attacking positions. He finished his time with the Blues with 110 goals to his name and 92 assists out of 352 appearances across all the major competitions he participated in. Whenever conversations take place on the best players of the Premier League, his name always comes up because he has been able to register a total of 85 goals in his name along with 54 assists in 245 appearances. And this is the reason why Juan Mata, the midfielder from Manchester united, feels the name of Eden Hazard should come at the beginning of every discussion.

However manager ZinedineZidane still has time to decide his first 11. In this article we look at the possible players that could feature in the starting lineup for the club next season.

Belgium stopper ThibautCourtois should be the undisputed number one despite competition from Costa Rica international KeylorNavas. Courtois has endured a difficult start to his Real Madrid career after completing his dream move from Chelsea last summer.

In the defenceCarvajal remains one of the best rightbacks in the business and was one of the few Madrid players that performed well last season. Zidane would also have to take the difficult decision of benching leftback Marcelo for new signing FerlandMendy. Marcelo has been a great servant for the club but his best days appear to be long gone.

In central defence the pairing of Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane has been steady in the past few seasons and should begin the season but new signing Militao could break into the first team as heposses quality.

Real Madrid also have to make key decisions in the middle of the park the trio of Casemerio, Tony Kroos and Luca Modric floundered last season. The signing of Paul Pogba or Christian Eriksen could bring the much needed energy to the midfield.

Upfront is where Madrid strength lie, Belgium forward Eden Hazard would have to shoulder most of the attacking responsibility after moving from Chelsea.  While French forward KarimBenzema and Luka Jovic could complete an attacking trio in the 4-3-3 formation favoured by manager Zidane. Welsh forward Gareth Bale has an outside chance depending on whether he regains his form.
