Chelsea stars Eden Hazard and N’Golo Kante are favourites to win the PFA Player of the Year this season after outstanding performances from the duo this season.
However, Danny Murphy believes Hazard edges out Kante for the award because it’s far easier to create than to destroy in football and Hazard has been the creator for Chelsea this season.
“N’Golo Kante has been the player of the year for many people but Eden Hazard would be my choice,” Murphy wrote in Standard Sports.
“It is far easier to destroy than create. Creating is the hardest task in football and Hazard is a game-changer. Every time I have watched him live this season, he has been incredible.
“He was the difference in Chelsea’s recent FA Cup quarter-final win over Manchester United, as he has been in many games. If you’re an opponent and you see his name missing from the team sheet, you are absolutely delighted. It is the same with Kante, who is a brilliant midfielder. He covers so much ground, makes tackles and interceptions, but he won’t play a killer pass.
“That is why Hazard remains their key man.”
