Eden Hazard wins Young Player of the Year

Mike Hewitt

The PFA Young Player of the Year shortlist looked fairly promising as far as Eden Hazard was concerned. With his competition consisting of Raheem Sterling, Luke Shaw, Ross Barkley and Daniel Sturridge it seemed clear that he was in with a shot of winning the thing thanks to his scintillating form over the season, and it turns out that he's done just that:

Congratulations, then, are in order for a player who's been little short of magical all season. While he didn't win overall Player of the Year -- Luis Suarez pipped him to that* -- this is still a major achievement and marks significant progress in the Belgian's career. And there's always next year for the bigger prize!

*I imagine he'd rather have have more luck in front of goal today than win an individual award, but hey, Tomas Kalas.
