Liverpool Echo writer Connor Dunn has put to bed the debate of who is a better footballer between Mohamed Salah and Eden Hazard.
There been an eternal debate between pundits and even fans of the Premier League about who the best player in the League is. While we have seen top-class footballers, Salah and Hazard have been on the lips of many because of their technical prowess.
Salah only returned to the Premier League last season after a short spell with the Blues between 2013-15. He won the golden boot in the League and ended up scoring 44 goals in all competitions last term.
On the other-hand, Hazard has been ever present in the League and has totaled 16 League goals at best. Although he stands tall with his ability to dribble and hold onto the ball, his goal return as compared to Salah has been poor.
For this season, Hazard started the season brightly but he’s stuck on seven League goals while Salah, who endured poor form at the start of the season is currently the leading scorer in the League with 10 goals.
“In the domestic campaign there is not much to separate their wonderful abilities,” Dunn wrote.
“Salah has made 16 appearances and scored 10 times while assisting four. Hazard has made 15 appearance and scored seven times but assisted eight.
“Both players contribution to their team is nothing short of remarkable this year. However, it is in Europe where Jurgen Klopp’s star man takes it above and beyond.
“To put it simply Eden Hazard has scored 14 goals in Europe in his entire career with Lille and Chelsea.
“In less than 18 months at Liverpool, Mohamed Salah has scored 14 Champions League goals.You simply cannot argue with those incredible numbers from the Reds winger.”
These stats speaks so much volume not taking anything from the quality of the players.
