Hazard nominated for Premier League Player of the Season

The only nominee from a team other than Manchester City or Liverpool.

The 2018-19 season has gone quite well Eden Hazard.

In terms of raw numbers, it's been his best in the Premier League in fact: 16 goals and 15 assists (and counting!) in 36 appearances thus far, becoming the fourth member of the 15/15 club alongside Eric Cantona, Matt Le Tissier and Thierry Henry.

Obviously we are not alone in our admiration of Eden Hazard: he's one of the seven players nominated for the EA Sports Premier League Player of the Season award, and the only one not from one of the two title contenders.

The other nominees include Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling, Sergio Agüero (Manchester City), Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool).

Hazard came up short in the PFA awards (voted on by the players), where he was hilariously omitted even from their Team of the Year selection.

But this time around, the fans can help to make sure such injustice does not happen twice this season by voting for him.
