Chelsea have enjoyed a good past month in the Premier League, and it has now been topped off by Eden Hazard winning the PFA Fans’ Player of the Month award for October.
The Belgian star followed up Tottenham’s Heung-min Son, who won the gong in September, by being named as the best player in the top flight in October thanks to his superb form in front of goal for Antonio Conte’s side.
Hazard scored three goals last month, including a superb solo effort in Chelsea’s 2-0 win at Southampton on Sunday, and created another for teammate Diego Costa, which also came at St Mary’s Stadium.
Hazard’s goals have contributed to Chelsea moving into the top four, just one point behind league leaders Manchester City.
And that resulted in 27,262 fans voting for the Belgian to take the Player of the Month prize for October ahead of Arsenal forward Theo Walcott, who received 14,737 votes, and Stoke midfielder Joe Allen (14,491).
Spurs midfielder Dele Alli came in fourth place with 2,012 votes while Charlie Austin (1,996) and Callum Wilson (1,073) completed the top six.
