Chelsea star Eden Hazard edged out by Arsenal and Everton men in Sky Sports power rankings

CHELSEA star Eden Hazard is only the third most in-form player in the Premier League, according to the Sky Sports power rankings.

The Sky Sports power rankings calculate the form of every single player in the Premier League .

Each player’s performance is assessed by a complex system which awards points for 33 different matchday stats.

These stats include goals, passes, tackles, blocks, big chances missed and touches.

Each action is worth more or less depending on whether the player is a goalkeeper, defender, midfielder or forward.

The rankings only take into account the last five matches, with the most recent games weighted more heavily.

Hazard has been raking in the accolades for his performances so far this campaign, and is currently the top scorer in the Premier League with seven goals.

But Everton playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson and Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette have both achieved more over the last five games according to the power rankings.

Sirgurdsson is the only Toffees man to feature in the top 20, but Lacazette is joined by fellow Gunners forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (6th) and midfielder Granit Xhaka (15th).

Hazard’s team-mate Kepa Arrizabalaga is in 10th place, with the Spanish ace beginning to show just why Chelsea paid a world record fee for a goalkeeper to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
