Eden Hazard is the best dribbler in the Premier League in terms of who has completed the most succesful runs in England’s top division so far this season.

The fleet-footed Belgian winger, who recently won the PFA Young Player of the Year award, has made 122 succesful dribbles this campaign, over 30 more than any other player, and has been one of the protagonists in Chelsea’s push for the title.

Hazard has enjoyed a brilliant season, establishing himself as one of the Stamford Bridge outfit's most pivotal creative outlets. Along with his tricky wing play, he has also added goals and assists – scoring 14 times and making seven assists in his 33 games so far.

His main rival, unsurprisingly, comes in the form of Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, who has made 88 successful runs over the course of the campaign from two fewer appearances than Hazard.

Suarez, who has recently said that he is happy to stay at Anfield despite rumours of interest from Real Madrid, was the other big winner at the PFA Awards – scooping up the Player of the Year gong.

Encouragingly for England fans ahead of the World Cup in Brazil this summer, Liverpool's Raheem Sterling, Southampton's Adam Lallana and Everton's Ross Barkley also feature in the top five.
