Who's better: Man City star Kevin De Bruyne or Chelsea ace Eden Hazard?

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard says he voted for Belgium worldwide teammate Kevin De Bruyne to be this season's PFA Players' Player of the Year.

"I voted for Kevin De Bruyne", Hazard revealed. He is the best.

The 2017 African Player of the Year continues to set records as he became the quickest Liverpool player to net 20 goals in the Premier League in addition to becoming the Liverpool player with most left-footed goals in a single Premier League season.

"Kevin has got everything". "I love the goals he scores, I love his assists".

This year's race for the Premier League's Player of the Year is a hot one as a series of incredible individual performances have helped carry teams to great heights.

De Bruyne is the bookies favourite to collect the top prize at the PFA awarda, with votes beings submitted by professional players in England's four leagues this month.

Both Kane and Salah's bids to be crowned the best in the league sit nearly entirely on one thing: goals. He has been instrumental in the midfield while contributing heavily in city's build-up play. As if you needed Stevie G to tell you that, and not any semi-prolific five-a-side striker who shoots every time they touch the ball.

"I've got it in Germany, it is a special thing, not a lot of players receive something like that", he said.

"I think there are three [best players in the Premier League] - Kevin De Bruyne, Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane", Hazard told Sky Sports. I like to make jokes with my friends in the tunnel but as soon as the referee blows the whistle I'm focused on the game.

Chelsea are 22 points behind City ahead of Sunday's league clash at the Etihad.
