Chelsea talisman Eden Hazard wins PFA player of the year award.
Chelsea playmker Eden Hazard has been named the PFA Player of the Year, beating stiff competition from Manchester United’s David De Gea and Tottenham’s Harry Kane.
Hazard has played a pivotal role in Chelsea’s march to the Premier League title this season, scoring 13 goals and laying on eight assists.
While some of his team-mates have fallen out of form in 2015 – suficiently so, in the case of Cesc Fabregas, to fall out of the PFA Team of the Year – Hazard has maintained the high level of form which he showed in the first half of the campaign.
Last weekend he scored the decisive goal against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, which finally killed off Louis van Gaal’s faint hopes of winning the title, which came a week after laying on a late, important winner for Fabregas at Queens Park Rangers.
“I’m very happy. One day I want to be the best and what I did this season is play very well, Chelsea played very well,” Hazard said on Sunday evening.
“I don’t know if I deserve to win but it is good for me. It is better to be voted by the players – they know everything about football.
“Personally I have played a good season, I have been there in the big games and I scored a lot of important goals, this is why I’m better this season.”
Hazard’s eye-catching skills and important goals have given him the edge over his Premier League colleagues, including Kane and De Gea, who came second and third respectively.
Also, Harry Kane won the PFA young player award after his fairytale season beating both Eden Hazard and Phillepe Coutinho who came second and third respectively.
