This season has been a tight contest so far with three teams currently battling it at the top and are refusing to drop points easily.

Manchester City top the table and are joined at the top by Liverpool, while Chelsea are two points behind in third place.

All three teams are yet to lose a game this season, and have some players who have been outstanding so far.

Manchester United legend Gary Neville listed Chelsea star Eden Hazard among the players that have impressed him this season, and he admitted that the Belgian is the best in the Premier League.

He told Sky Sports Super 6: “Milner for Liverpool, who have been outstanding. Virgil van Dijk: outstanding.

“Luke Shaw at Manchester United, I’ve been really pleased with him. I’ve got full belief in him and his talent. He just needs that break in terms of staying clear of injuries.

“Eden Hazard is a wonderful player. He probably is [the best in the league]. David Silva I love. De Bruyne is brilliant. [David] De Gea has been one of the top players over the last few years.

“They are the type of players who have impressed me most.”

Hazard has taken the league by storm this season and he isn’t just playing well and deciding games, he’s also scoring goals. Hazard has so far scored six league goals and the Belgian tops the scorer’s chart.

Hazard has been outstanding this season, and even his teammate Cesc Fabregas admitted that he’s in the best form of his life.

“I have had some great moments with Eden on the pitch but maybe in terms of maturity, yes it is the best [form of his career],” Fabregas told the Evening Standard.

“He has always had the ability but he is at an age now where he feels he can be more dangerous. He knows when to pass more, when to dribble.

“His maturity has improved a lot and now he is scoring goals, decisive goals which we all wanted from him.

“When you see the top players, this is what they do. They make a difference in terms of scoring goals. I think he needed that to make the step forward and at the moment he is doing that so hopefully he can keep it up.”
