Gareth Bale, Luis Suarez, Eden Hazard… well, maybe. We are of course talking about the Premier League’s Player of the year award, and there is one real standout candidate this time. Hazard has been truly breath-taking for the table-topping Blues this season, with his quick feet, eye for goal and pace all massive threats.
They were all on show just two minutes into Chelsea’s clash with Hull at the KC Stadium, as the little Belgian smacked an absolute peach of a shot into the Tigers’ net. Hazard drifted, shimmied and unleashed a swerving pile driver, which seems to have put any nerves the Londoners may have had on Humberside to bed.
WHAT. A. HIT
Surely with his side on course to lift the title, Hazard is a show in for the POTY award? Chelsea fans may hope not, however, with the last two winners having promptly moved over to Spain with Real Madrid and Barcelona!
