With Eden Hazard gone, the title of best dribbler in the Premier League is up for grabs during the 2019/20 season.

Winning said duels can often be the difference between three points and zero. As a result, players capable of operating in tight areas and beating a challenge do not come cheap. Just ask Crystal Palace.
