Hazard has recently returned from a serious ankle injury but it looks like he is on his way to rediscovering his best form for the Blues after having earned huge amounts of praise for his performance in the 2-1 Champions League win at Atletico Madrid last month.

Jamie Carragher has backed Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane to dominate the Premier League in the next decade.

Goalkeeper: David de Gea (Manchester United)'Unfortunately I am going to have to start with a Manchester United player, who I actually think is the best keeper in the world at the moment'.

Marcos Alonso is the first of the Chelsea players to appear at left-back, while his team-mate Cesar Azpiliceuta and Tottenham duo Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen make up the rest of the defence.

"Alongside him his mate wasn't far behind him, Vertonghen".

And when Carragher was asked by the Daily Telegraph to construct a fantasy Premier League XI for 2017 he chose Kane as his number nine feeling the English marksman is on the cusp of true greatness. "He has a superb defensive record with Chelsea and he scores goals".

Carragher, now football pundit for Sky Sports, also picked N'Golo Kante in central midfield to partner Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne and Liverpool's Philipe Coutinho. The latter Carragher believes will be a future Player of the Year victor following his impressive start to the season.

"The standout player at the start of this season".

All four players will likely be called on by Conte in Chelsea's home game against Crystal Palace this weekend.

"Last season without him Liverpool fell apart at times".
