Chelsea ace Eden Hazard scooped the player and young player of the year awards in the Premier League last season - but doesn't deem himself good enough to be amongst the world's top five players.
The Belgian has been a hit since joining the Blues from Lille for around £30 million in 2012. He has helped them win the Europa League and was named the club's best player last term.
Hazard has been in fine form this season and has helped Chelsea go unbeaten to reach the top of the table after seven games, scoring once and providing one assist in that time. Despite shining for Chelsea, he doesn't believe he belongs alongside the very best in the game.
Although Hazard has earned glowing reviews in the Premier League, he has at times been criticised by Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho for not doing enough defensively, and the winger agrees he needs to add more to his game before being considered amongst the elite.
'I'm not a top-five player yet,' he explained. 'Maybe I'm close to it, but I still have to work on some aspects. You can only be part of that group if you are decisive in the top games.I start doing that, like I did against Manchester City and Arsenal.
The Chelsea star then went on to list who he believes is currently ahead of him in the world game - although he creates a special sub-category for two superstars in particular.
He said: "Who are better than me? The two extra-terrestrials, (Cristiano) Ronaldo and (Lionel) Messi, (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic, (Franck) Ribery and (Arjen) Robben. They make the difference almost every game.'
Ronaldo is the current Ballon d'Or holder, although there was little to do as Portugal crashed out of the World Cup at the group stages. Messi fared better in Brazil and helped Argentina reach the final for the first time since 1990, only for the Albiceleste to fall at the last hurdle to Germany.
Bayern Munich duo Robben and Ribery helped their side claim Champions League glory in 2013, and while the latter earned a nomination for the Ballon d'Or it was the former who shone at the World Cup and earned a place on the team of the tournament.
