A huge poll on Twitter, which has so far seen over 130,000 people vote, has seen Eden Hazard named the better Premier League player than Mo Salah – with the Egyptian currently on less than 40% of the vote.
Here are some stats that might help out the uninitiated:
Goals per 90: -Salah: 0.72 -Hazard: 0.39. Non-penalty goals per 90: -Salah: 0.62 -Hazard: 0.31. Big chances created per 90: -Salah: 0.38 -Hazard: 0.31. Assists per 90: -Salah: 0.25 -Hazard: 0.25
Salah also has two Golden Boots and is on track for a third – and reached two Champions League Finals over his tenure – winning one.
We think the results here are a lovely explanation of how disrespected and undervalued Salah is.
It shouldn’t really bother us, but it’s just strange how a winger who has racked up the kind of numbers nobody else has even come close to can be regarded by so many as an overhyped footballer.
He’s an all-time great – that’s a fact.
