Chelsea star Eden Hazard insists he’s currently the best player in the world.
Hazard has started the new season brilliantly, scoring eight goals to help maintain Chelsea’s unbeaten start to the season.
The 27-year-old has been named the Premier League’s Player of the Month for September after scoring five Premier League goals in the month of October including a hat-trick against Cardiff City.
When asked if he is currently the best player in the world, Hazard said: “Yes.
“The team is helping me a lot also. I can improve for sure. We can always improve in football.
“We can score more goals, more assists. But honestly, I think I have been in better shape before than I am now.
“Statistically speaking, this is as good a start as I have ever had. But on the pitch in my general performance, I have played better for both Lille and Chelsea.”
Hazard has just 20 months left to run on his current contract and some reports have claimed the Belgian could leave Chelsea for Real Madrid in January.
Speaking to the Belgian media, Hazard gave a clear indication he won’t leave Stamford Bridge in January.
When asked if he could leave Chelsea in the winter transfer window, Hazard added: “I have already said a lot about my future but it is not an option to leave in January.”
