The Premier League GOAT #21

Eden Hazard

Coming in at #21 is one of the best of the best attacking the Premier League has seen in the past decade. For some Chelsea fans he’s their best ever player, a player who often divides opinion among rival fans, a two time Premier League winner.. Eden Hazard. I have been somewhat critical of Hazard’s spell in England in the past but even I can’t deny the impact he had on Chelsea and their last two title wins. At various points time in time across a 7 years stint in the Premier League he was arguably the best player the league had to offer, that is why he lands himself at #21 on this list.


These disclaimers will be disclosed weekly, so please take note of them before reading.

  1. The list mostly includes players from the 2000s & 2010s, with the exception of one or two. I did not think I could fairly compare players from the 90s that I’ve only watched on Youtube or read about.
  2. I wanted to include one player from at least every position, so there’s a good variety of players and not just forwards or midfielders.
  3. There is a difference between ‘best’ & ‘greatest’. Example: Wayne Rooney is in my opinion, the best player to ever play for Everton but he’s not their greatest ever player.

Please keep these disclaimers in mind! If you missed the previous 4 entrants please find them below. 

“Switch on the TV, look at him, immediately you realise his qualities. You know his qualities better than me. He’s an exceptional player. One, by far, one of the best players in the world.”
Pep Guardiola
Man City Manager

Having spoken with Chelsea fans, I have been able to truly appreciate how great the impact Hazard truly had on his team and the league. For the majoirty of his spell he was a solo act, the team went as far (and in one season as low) as he could take them. Similar to Gerrard at #25, he wasn’t blessed with world class teammates year after year, besides Cesc, Costa and Kante, Chelsea were largely a one man show. Whenever my club would play Chelsea I would always be most fearful of him, he’s one of those electric players, they can turn it on in a flash, a player like him no matter what form they were in was never to be underestimated, perhaps no better indication of this was the 2015/16 season (his worst year at Chelsea) in which he saved his best moment of the campaign for ‘The Battle of Stamford Bridge’. His stunning finish was enough to hand Leicester the title at the expense of his clubs most bitter rivals.

Notable Achievements

Six trophies in 7 years and plenty of individual awards too! Hazard has some CV I can’t lie.

  • Two-time Premier League winner (14/15, 16/17).
  • FA Cup winner (17/18).
  • Two-time Europa League winner (12/13, 18/19).
  • League Cup winner (14/15).
  • PFA Young POTY (13/14).
  • Football Writers & PFA Players’ POTY (14/15).
  • Four-time PFA TOTY nominee

There was plenty more too! A pretty insane run of accolades across a 7 year period.

Best Moments & Goals

He was never a prolific scorer but he did score many great important goals. In his last appearance for the club he netted a brace against bitter London rivals Arsenal, the first player to score two in a European final for an English club since 1991. He also scored the goal to win Chelsea the title in 2014/15, proving that he was a big game player. It would be a very hard task to find someone in the Premier League with a similar number of brilliant solo goals scored. Below is just a few of the marvelous goals he scored across his career at Chelsea, enjoy!

Stunning Anfield goal

This is what I meant by electric, he could turn it on in a flash and this goal personifies that.

Silencing the Kop

His balance and low center of gravity is actually insane, seems to just ride challenges effortlessly.

Sent Coquelin packing

Arsenal fans turn away now, this goal epitomized Eden Hazards dribbling, strength, balance and composure. Picking the ball up at the halfway line, brushing off Coquelin and then leaving Koscielny clueless before slotting home, a truly great goal!

"Does he have the capacity to reach the level of a Messi or Cristiano? Now I say yes, because his evolution is great"
Jose Mourinho
Chelsea's greatest manager


This quote from Jose might be somewhat sad for Chelsea fans, for as great as he was maybe he didn’t truly hit his potential, for me he never had that drive to be the best that other greats had, look maybe its not a bad thing, I’m sure there’s an immense amounts of pressure that the likes of Ronaldo puts on himself to perform at the highest level year after year, not everyone can be like that. Hazard still achieved a remarkable career in England, multiple trophies and personal accolades and even some saying he had a greater career than Chelsea legends Drogba and Lampard, he’s well worthy of a spot at #21 on this list and who knows maybe the Premier League will see him again before it’s all said and done!
