Eden Hazard has revealed that Kevin de Bruyne received his Premier League Player of the Year vote.
De Bruyne is the frontrunner to win the award, but faces competition from Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah and Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
Chelsea winger Hazard believes those three players are the best in the league, but De Bruyne is just ahead.
“I think there are three [best players in the Premier League] – Kevin De Bruyne, Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane,” Hazard told Sky Sports.
“I voted for Kevin De Bruyne. He is the best. I could have also voted for Salah because I played with him and he’s my friend but Salah is more a striker than a player.
“Kevin has got everything. He defends, crosses the ball, assists and scores goals in big games. For me, he is the best this season.
“He’s fantastic. He’s clever on and off the pitch. He’s in full confidence as he’s playing in the best team in the Premier League this year.
“When he’s on the pitch with good players, he’s one of the best in the world. Every time he has the ball at his feet he can do something magic.
“He doesn’t score a lot of goals but he can create something with just one movement or pass. It’s simple, he’s a special player.”
