Eden Hazard shortlisted for two major awards

Shaun Botterill

Surprise surprise. Chelsea's best player of 2013/14 has been nominated for both the PFA Player of the Year and the PFA Young Player of the Year. I don't think anyone actually expects Eden Hazard to win Player of the Year, but, you know, even getting on the six-person shortlist is fairly impressive for someone who hasn't won footballer of the month yet.

Here's the full list for both nominations:

PFA Player of the Year Award nominees

Eden Hazard
Yaya Toure
Adam Lallana
Steven Gerrard
Luis Suarez
Daniel Sturridge

PFA Young Player of the Year Award nominees

Eden Hazard
Ross Barkley
Aaron Ramsey
Luke Shaw
Daniel Sturridge
Raheem Sterling

I notice an interesting trend here, one that will look mighty silly should Chelsea pull off a win at Anfield next weekend. But Chelsea being in the shadows can only be a good thing for the Blues -- we relish being underdogs, and we're definitely not the people's choice to win much of anything this season. Just how we like it.
