Eden has done it AGAIN!
For the 5th consecutive year he has won a Best Young Player of the Year or Best Player of the Year award is the league he is playing in.

This time, Eden Hazard has been named the Professional Footballers’ Association player of the year for 2014-15, recognizing a season of performances that have helped bring Chelsea to the verge of the Premier League title.

The 24-year-old, who won the young player of the year award last year and has built on that achievement with some impeccable displays this time around, took the prize ahead of second-placed Harry Kane and third-placed David de Gea. A few hours before the ceremony, Hazard had made his 33rd league start in as many games at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, where his side secured a draw that took them 10 points clear at the top with five games left.

“I’m very happy,” said Hazard. “One day I want to be the best and what I did this season is play very well, Chelsea played very well. I don’t know if I deserve to win but it is good for me.

“It is good, it is better to be voted by the players – they know everything about football. This is good. I’m very happy.”

Hazard, a Belgium international, arrived at Stamford Bridge from Ligue 1 side Lille in June 2012 as a much-heralded wunderkind and has matured into one of the world’s best attacking players. He has scored 18 goals in all competitions this season and was praised by his manager Jose Mourinho last week as “A fantastic boy. A golden boy.”

“I continue like I did last season – I try to be the same,” added Hazard. “I try to score more goals than last season [when he scored 17]. 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.

“Jose Mourinho lets me play, we talk together sometimes and when I’m on the pitch I know what I have to do – this is most important. We are almost there to win the league.”

Also yesterday, he was voted in the Team Of the Year by the same PFA.
The young player of the year award was won by Kane, ahead of Hazard and Philippe Coutinho.

Rating: 7.8. From 4 votes.
