This weekend sees rivals West Ham United and Chelsea go head to head in what should be an intriguing London derby.
Both have enjoyed significantly contrasting seasons, with the Hammers flying high under new manager Slaven Bilic and Chelsea looking a shadow of the runaway leaders they were in the 2014-15 campaign.
Hazard was the undisputed 'Player of the Year' in the Premier League last season, as he led in a number of key areas, while this season Payet has looked like the signing of the summer after a number of impressive displays.
But who has enjoyed the better season so far? We decided to compare the two to find out.
|Total Final Third Passes per Game||Successful Final Third Passes per Game||Total Attempted Assists per Game||Ontarget Attempted Assists per Game||Total Shots per Game||Shots on Target per Game||Total Dribbles per Game||Dribbles Won per Game|
Surprisingly, it’s a draw between the two as each player won in four categories apiece.
Hazard, who has so far struggled to replicate his form of last season, came out on top when it comes to final third passes and successful final third passes per game, as well as total dribbles and dribbles won.
Payet, though, is the winner when it came to total attempted assists and on target attempted assists per game, as well as total shots and shots on target.
A draw in this head to head then, with both players locked together win wins in four key areas each.
Who comes out on top when their sides go head to head on Saturday is sure to be key to which team come out victorious in the game.
