The ESPN FC panel respond to your tweets on Eden Hazard becoming the PFA Player of the Year, and whether or not Serie A is a better league than the Bundesliga this season.
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:

This Premier League season could be the dirtiest on record

Only one Premier League season has had more yellow cards than the current campaign, and this could yet be the most ill-disciplined in history.

The most yellow cards in one season was 1,404 in 1998-99, and this season has already seen 1,098 cautions handed out. With 81 games still to be played, card-happy refs could break the record, making this the dirtiest-ever season for bookings.

There have been 3.68 yellow cards per game in the current campaign, compared to 3.69 in 1998-99. Only a small increase...

Here, we recall some other quick-fire red cards.
