Eden Hazard has been having yet another impressive season for Chelsea ? by a long-shot their standout player ? as he continues to be the heartbeat of his side’s attacking play.
The Belgian’s versatility as a both an central-attacking and wide-midfielder enables him to switch between playing in a more creative role further up the pitch or roaming back onto the wing if necessary.
With 11 goals scored and two assists registered in the Premier League this season ? as well as creating a further 53 chances for his teammates ? Hazard continues to establish himself as his side’s most important player.
The 27-year-old is a master dribbler of the ball, as well, and so here we analyse how he fares against his counterparts both in England and the rest of Europe. Most successful take-ons in the Premier League this season

Even more impressive is the fact Hazard has only failed to beat his man on 49 occasions. To put that into perspective, Zaha has been unsuccessful in 141 attempts.
