Former Cheslea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has officially picked Liverpool winger Sadio Mane as the best player in the Premier League.
The 27-year-old has been on fire for head coach Jurgen Klopp this season as he finds the back of the net 11 times and creating six assists so far gone this season as the Reds looks to end their 30-year run of no League title.
The Senegal winger’s performance for the Merseysiders club this campaign has seen him being deemed favourite to win the PFA Player of the Year. And of he did, it would make it the third time a Liverpool star won the award consecutively. The first was claimed by Mohamed Salah for his debut season performances in 2017/18 while Virgil Van Dijk claimed the award last campaign for being a solid rock at the back for the Reds.
Former Arsenal and Chelsea midfielder Fabregas had a Q&A, where his fans/followers gets to ask him questions on some topics, on Twitter on Tiesday morning.
During this particular session, a Liverpool fan with the handle @IconicMinamino asked the midfielder who he thinks is the best player in the Premier League so far this season and it was no other than the all round performer from Senegal for the Monaco midfielder.
He wrote: “Mane for me.”
The session didn’t stop there as he was asked to name his toughest opponent ever faced and one unusual name he doesn’t like playing against.
To that, he wrote: “Probably Steven Gerrard(toughest opponent). Fabrice Muamba when he was at Bolton. He was man marking me for 95’ and he even would follow me to the toilet if needed. I ended up scoring every game though”
