Opinion: Ranking the top 5 candidates for the PFA Player of the Year award
- We rank the top 5 candidates who will battle it out for the PFA Player of the Year award at the end of this season.
#4 Eden Hazard (Chelsea):
Eden Hazard is considered one of the best players in the world and possesses unmatched qualities. The Belgian is having another wonderful season and has scored 16 goals so far this season in the Premier League.
The 28-year-old is also joint top of the assists chart with 12, alongside Christian Eriksen in the league. Only Jadon Sancho has provided more assists (13) in Europe's top 5 leagues. Hazard is averaging 2.6 shots per game, 2.6 key passes per game and 3.5 dribbles per game in the Premier League this season.
The Belgian international has been linked with a move away from the Premier League this summer, with Real Madrid being interested in his service. The 28-year-old might be having his last season in the Premier League and the PFA Player of the Year award will be the perfect parting gift for him.Published 15 Apr 2019, 10:18 IST
