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

England‘s top tier is brimming with players who love nothing more than taking on their opposite man – and are pretty handy at winning their one-on-one duels.

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 anyone trying to sign Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace.
