3. Eden Hazard
The general feeling is that the two aforementioned players will continue to battle it out for the Ballon d’Or over the next few years. However, if there is to be a realistic challenge from elsewhere then the Chelsea man could be a serious contender. Finally showing the signs of carrying his club side, Hazard is a major contender for the PFA player of the year award.
4. Alexis Sanchez
After a decent campaign for Barcelona last year, scoring 21 goals in all competitions, the Chilean sensation has taken the Premier League by storm and is relishing being the leading man at a top European club. Scoring his 20th goal of the season from the wing against Liverpool, Alexis has been in a league of his own at times this campaign.
