The best thing about football is that it's a game of opinions.

There is always going to be debates around the hottest topic surrounding the footballing world.

One of the most heavily debated topics at the moment is answering who the best player in the Premier League is.

Paul Merson entered that debate in September, claiming that Eden Hazard stands above the rest.

"I think Hazard is the best player in the Premier League by a long way," Merson told Sky Sports, per the Metro.

"I don’t think anyone can do what he does and that’s what makes him better than everyone else in my opinion."

But there are a number of other players that would also be heavily involved in that debate.

Among those include Sergio Aguero, N'Golo Kante, Harry Kane, Kevin de Bruyne and Mohamed Salah.

Gary Neville was asked on Twitter who he thought were the best five players in the Premier League.

He gave his honest answer, but he made quite a big omission.

His list of the best five players, which presumably is in no particular order, is Eden Hazard, Harry Kane, David de Gea, Virgil van Dijk and Kevin de Bruyne.

Wow. No Salah? A fair few Liverpool supporters won't be happy about that.

Salah has been extraordinary since joining Liverpool in 2017.

He scored 44 times in 52 appearances during his first campaign and broke numerous records in the process.

He's tailed off slightly this year, but for Neville to leave Salah out of his top five is a massive call.

Gary Neville also answered some other interesting questions.

The former Manchester United player named Juventus as his tip to win the Champions League.

He believes Liverpool's front three is better than Manchester City's attacking trio.

Neville thinks that Sergio Ramos deserves the Ballon d'Or this year which, again, is another controversial opinion.

Although, there is a chance Neville is simply trolling Liverpool fans after Ramos' altercation with Salah in the Champions League final earlier this year...

And he believes Man Utd will eventually overcome their struggles and finish in the Premier League top four.
