Scintillating Eden Hazard wins Premier League Player of the Month for September

New, comments

On fiyah!

Eden Hazard's near unstoppable form (near unstoppable because he was stopped by West Ham out of all the teams) has helped him win the Player of the Month for September.

Somewhat unbelievably, it’s only the second time he’s won this accolade. He also won it in October 2016, not once winning it in 2014-15 when he was named Premier League Player of the Season.

September for Hazard began with a goal against Bournemouth in Chelsea's 2-0 win on the first of this month. Then came the dreaded international break but it didn't stop him, if anything, it only made him hungrier for goals. He scored a hat-trick against Cardiff in the first game back. In the next match against West Ham, Hazard couldn't score and neither could Chelsea as we huffed and puffed to a 0-0 draw.

The next match and last match for Chelsea in Premier League in September saw Hazard give Chelsea the lead against Liverpool, though Sturridge's unexpected banger from distance — which deservedly won Goal of the Month — made sure Chelsea had to settle for another draw.

Hazard thus finished this month with 5 goals in 4 appearances and deservedly romped to the Player of the Month award.

Congratulations, Eden!
