Comparing Hazard to Ronaldo and Messi: A statistics-based investigation

The ESPN FC team react to Eden Hazard winning the PFA Player of the Year award, where Alejandro Moreno still does not feel the Belgian international is yet one of the top five players in the world.

With Eden Hazard winning the PFA Player Footballer of the Year on Sunday, Five Aside looks at the stats that make him great and how he compares to the world's two best players, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo:

• Hazard may be tied for fourth in the Premier League with "only" eight assists, but he leads the league with 86 chances created (passes that lead to shots), five more than any other player. More impressively, 85 of those chances created came from open play, 16 more than other...

Watford's Premier League promotion: Five things to know about the club

Watford took charge of the race for promotion in 2015.

The Premier League will welcome Watford back for the 2015-16 season after Slavisa Jokanovic's men sealed promotion from the League Championship at the weekend. Here are five things to know about the north-west London club.

West Brom's defensive solidity frustrates Liverpool in draw

West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis praises his team's effort against Liverpool, and believes it's great for them to secure a point.

West Brom's 0-0 draw with Liverpool saw Tony Pulis' side return to the kind of defensive solidity that was the hallmark of the early part of his tenure, but had been missing for the previous two homes games.

Albion shipped seven goals in defeats to QPR and Leicester, which was totally out of keeping with previous displays at the Hawthorns. West Brom's clean sheet in the 2-0 win at Crystal Palace last weekend was a step in the right direction defensively, but the performance against Liverpool was...

Hull intensity brings massive win in excellent team performance

Dame N'Doye netted twice for Hull City, but the team played as a one.

If every season has its defining fixtures, those days that can alter the course of a campaign, Hull City will hope one of theirs arrived at Selhurst Park on Saturday. After six winless games had ratcheted up the pressure in the final straight, along came the victory that Steve Bruce and his side so desperately sought.

A 2-0 win over Crystal Palace, thanks to a brace from Dame N'Doye, has no rival for significance in this troubled term. A day that could have seen the 16th-placed Tigers slide into...

Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson not ruling out weakened team vs. Chelsea

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson insists that his side must not get complacent and that they are not yet safe from relegation.

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has not ruled out fielding a weakened team against Premier League leaders Chelsea on Wednesday in order to plan ahead for the Foxes' relegation fight.

Leicester seemed destined for the drop at the end of March, but have won four consecutive games in April to climb a point above the relegation zone into 17th place.

The Foxes face Chelsea on Wednesday before a run-in which features games against fellow relegation candidates Newcastle, Sunderland and QPR.
