Ander Herrera Reckons Neither Mo Salah or Kevin De Bruyne are the Best Player in England

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera reckons neither Mo Salah or Kevin De Bruyne deserve to be called the best player in the English Premier League, despite their incredible campaigns.

Salah has collected a slew of awards after his record-breaking debut season with Liverpool, with the European Golden Boot the highlight of his new and impressive honours.

De Bruyne, meanwhile, has been the standout player in a Manchester City side which not only strolled to the Premier League title with a record points total, but which are also credited with reshaping how fans and pundits think about the Beautiful Game in this country.

However, United’s Herrera thinks it’s tough to see past Chelsea play-maker Eden Hazard – regardless of the impressive 12 months his rivals have enjoyed.

Speaking with Graham Hunter via the Mirror, Herrera defiantly explained: “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.

“For me, David [De Gea] 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 hand out, you cannot train it.”

What do you make of Herera’s choice? Is Hazard a better player than both Salah and De Bruyne?
