Chelsea fans delighted as Kepa Arrizabalaga is nominated for the Yashin Award

As we approach the end of the year, it is time to reward those who impressed over the past 12 months.

On Monday, the nominees for the Ballon d’Or award were revealed by France Football. 30 players were included on the shortlist and, whilst there were 15 men from the Premier League who were included, there was no place for any of Chelsea’s stars. Eden Hazard, the only one with any real link to the team, left for Real Madrid during the summer transfer window.
