Chelsea winger Eden Hazard enjoyed the best season of his glittering career this past year, and was the main reason that Jose Mourinho’s men went on to win their fourth Premier League title. Unsurprisingly, he was voted for a series of individual accolades for his efforts, including the PFA Player of the Year.
Despite the Belgian’s wonderful displays, his rating of 7.96 from WhoScored.com only makes him the fifth best player in Europe. The rating is based on their performances in their own domestic leagues.
Here is the rest of the top five:
The Brazilian achieved a slightly higher rating than the Chelsea man, but by virtue of the fact that the Barcelona man had a direct hand in more goals, he could definitely argue to be placed higher. While Hazard managed more assists, Neymar scored eight more goals than the Belgian. His final goal of the campaign came in the Champions League final, and sealed a historic treble for the Catalan giants.
