Eden Hazard was tonight [Sunday] named PFA Young Player of the Year.
The Belgian, who was also nominated for the main award, was handed the prize at a ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
The 23-year-old has been rewarded for an impressive second season in English football, one in which he has produced a number of outstanding individual displays.
To date, Hazard has made 45 appearances this season and scored 17 goals, including his first hat-trick for Chelsea in a 3-0 win over Newcastle United in February.
He has also netted important strikes against Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.
Hazard’s fellow nominees in the Young Player of the Year Award category were Ross Barkley, Daniel Sturridge, Raheem Sterling, Luke Shaw and Aaron Ramsey.
Meanwhile, after our 2-0 win at Liverpool earlier in the day, there was more positive news for the Blues with both Petr Cech and Gary Cahill joining Hazard in the PFA Team of the Season.
Team in full:
Cech; Coleman, Cahill, Kompany, Shaw; Lallana, Gerrard, Toure, Hazard; Suarez, Sturridge.
