Kevin De Bruyne is the best player in the Premier League currently, according to Belgium teammate Eden Hazard.

Hazard played a huge role in the Blues title success last season, but City are setting the pace this season after a blistering start.

Speaking ahead of Belgium’s friendly at home to Mexico on Friday, Hazard admitted that he feels his Belgium teammate De Bruyne s the best player currently in the league.

“Kevin is definitely the best player in the Premier League at the moment,”┬áhe said.

“City are the best Premier League team and Kevin is an important player in [Pep] Guardiola’s system.

“It’s easy to play with Kevin because we’re good players.”

Hazard has admitted it is unlikely he will play both of Belgium’s upcoming friendlies as he continues to manage a busy workload.

“It would be silly to play 90 minutes twice but I still want to play,” he said.

“Personally I feel good. There is no apprehension related to my return from injury.

“I am already at the top but I still hope to improve.”
