Chelsea’s Hazard Would Be My Player Of The Year Pick


Last year, Luis Suarez deservedly ran away with the Player of the Year title. His form couldn’t be matched.

This season has been quite different. Plenty of players have had great seasons without one having a standout year, compared to the rest.

So I’ve decided to let you know who I’d pick and why. Plus the other contenders who I think could be nominated for the seasonal awards.

Players such as Sergio Aguero, Oliver Giroud, Jordan Henderson, David Silva, Branislav Ivanovic and Raheem Sterling have all had superb seasons but just miss out for me.


Chelsea’s creative magician would be my pick for Player of the Year.

The Belgian won the young player’s version last term and has once again had a fantastic season.

He has so far started in every Chelsea game and I can’t seem to remember him having a bad game this term. His qualities like close control, dribbling, passing and holding onto the ball can be a dream to watch if you are a teammate but equally frustrating for the opposing full-backs.

So far this season, Hazard has scored fifteen goals and created eight assists. Only once has scored in the Premier League and Chelsea haven’t picked up points. The wide-man has also bagged goals against ‘Top Four’ rivals like Spurs (2), Liverpool, Arsenal and Southampton.

Has been consistently immense all season; scoring important goals and making key passes. Chelsea have been top for a while now and Hazard’s continued fine performances have been key to that.

At times he has been unplayable and is the player more than anyone else Jose Mourinho looks to when the chips are down and Chelsea need inspiration.

The worrying thing for the rest is that Eden Hazard is still only twenty-four and is still improving each and every season!

The Rest Of My Nominees…


I always said that the Chilean would be a hit in the English Premier League (EPL) and he has shown that in his debut season.

In all competitions Sanchez has banged in eighteen goals and has helped his teammates out with eight assists. A superb return from the forward.

Has terrific pace that terrifies defenders up and down the land. Has also been the catalyst that sees Arsenal in third spot and still in with a shout for second.

Can play anywhere in the frontline and that allows Arsene Wenger the chance to get more out of Giroud, Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Santi Cazorla. A sublime finisher and a quality pacey striker that Arsenal desperately needed.

Has tailed off a few times during the campaign due to fatigue.


The striker is a beast and shows no fear. Can give any defence a physical fight and give him a sniff of a chance and he’ll likely take it.

Has bundled in eighteen league goals so far this term and that tally will only grow as long as he stays fit and out of trouble.

Costa was one of the missing pieces for Chelsea and he has hit the ground running.

Needs to learn to not be so feisty as it gets him cards and suspensions but his hands-on warrior style makes him the player that he is.

Relies on the rest of the squad like Cesc Fabregas and Hazard to supply him and that’s why I think he just doesn’t make it as the player of the year.


The Manchester United keeper has been the main component that has seen his side propel into ‘Top Four’ contention.

Has made marvellous saves all season and has been the most consistent performer at Old Trafford. Louis van Gaal hasn’t dared drop/rest De Gea as his defence have been shaky and the Spaniard has been continually to get them out of trouble.

Has ten cleansheets so far in this campaign and is fast becoming one of the world’s best goalkeepers.

No wonder Real Madrid are checking him out. Would be a shame for English football if he were to return to Spain.

David de Gea is at a disadvantage when it comes to individual awards as goalies never seem to get the same credit. Just a nomination would be big for the twenty-four year old.


The Spurs star has had a wonderful fairytale season so far. He currently leads the EPL scoring charts with nineteen strikes and has just been called up for his first England squad.

In all competitions Kane has grabbed twenty-seven goals in thirty-three starts.

Has just got better and better this season and rewarding the faith shown in him by Mauricio Pochettino.

Looks to be the heir to Alan Shearer’s goalscoring throne. Very intelligent in and around the box and has the confidence to take a shot on. Has power on his side and is smart enough to get in to the right places at the right times.

Funny that after spending so much money on foreign recruits, that Tottenham’s new hero would be one of their own! At twenty-one I’d give him the Young Player of the Year award this term.
