Hazard, Willian, Millie Bright and Juan Castillo in the running

There’s a great selection to choose from.

Here’s where to cast your vote.

Eden Hazard vs Watford

The context: Yes, that awful game. Down to ten men and trailing 2-0 1-0, in the 82nd minute Hazard scored on a brilliant individual effort to pull us back into the match. Watford promptly scored two more and confirmed the state of CRISIS already in place after the Bournemouth loss.

Eden Hazard vs West Bromwich Albion

The context: The first match after the Watford debacle and also the first start for Olivier Giroud (after coming on as a sub against Watford.) He laid off a lovely one-two pass with Hazard for a superb team goal, and right there and then ignited a controversy over who should be our first-choice striker.

Juan Castillo vs Manchester United

The context: The Dutch fullback scored the opening goal with a powerful box-to-box run in an eventual 0-4 victory in Premier League 2. This was the team’s first away win over Manchester United since 2014, when they nipped them to the U-21 Premier League title.

Willian vs Hull City

The context: The goal that would ignite the fire that raged through the next two matches (against Barcelona and United.) He picks up a mistake and plants a sweet left-footed strike to break a personal three-game scoreless run. He scored two in this match.

Willian vs Barcelona

The context: Willian was a postman for two efforts before putting an outrageous bend on the ball with his right foot for his third attempt and giving Chelsea a goal. The players say that goal and the result give them confidence they can play against the very best teams. Willian would go on to score in his next game too, against Manchester United.

Millie Bright vs Manchester City

The context: This was the first goal for Chelsea Ladies in what became a 2-2 draw and might well have secured them their second WSL championship, because title-holders Man City are their toughest competition. Centre-back Bright says she’s inspired by Blues legend John Terry.

“I’ve always looked up to John Terry, he’s a massive defender and a rock. His one-v-one defending and reading of the game have really educated me. I watch a lot of clips of him.”
