Hazard scoops Chelsea Player of the Year award

Goal.com logo Goal.com 28-05-2017

Eden Hazard has been voted Chelsea’s 2016-17 Player of the Season by supporters of the Premier League champions.

The Belgian forward enjoyed a welcome return to form at Stamford Bridge following a forgettable defence of his PFA Player of the Year award 12 months ago.

'Conte's iron fist dealt with Hazard'

He netted 16 goals in 36 top-flight appearances for the Blues as Antonio Conte’s side swept aside all before them.

Hazard was pipped to another PFA prize by team-mate N’Golo Kante, but has seen his efforts recognised by a loyal fan base in west London.

While Kante missed out on the main award, he did get his hands on another trophy.

The other notable gong of the night also went to Hazard, with his stunning solo effort in a derby date with Arsenal earning him the Goal of the Season award.

Chelsea missed out on a domestic double after being beaten by Arsenal in the FA Cup but can console themselves with title success and a return to Champions League competition for 2017-18.
