Eden Hazard & Roberto Firmino: In fine form this weekend

Eden Hazard & Roberto Firmino: In fine form this weekend

Eden Hazard was rated as the Premier League’s best player this weekend, while a Manchester United man is the surprise name at the top of the most accurate passing leaderboard.

Hazard was the architect of Chelsea’s big win over Everton at Stamford Bridge on Saturday with our after-match analysis describing his performance as “irresistible”.

His performance was only marginally better than his Chelsea team-mate Pedro, while Liverpool duo Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane – who starred in our Player Ratings after their big win over Watford – were also highly commended.

However, while their efforts were widely acclaimed, there is one Manchester United man who can take some satisfaction from a first Premier League start of the season as we take a look at whoscored.com’s best and worst of the weekend stats….
