The Blues star won the award with 53 per cent of the vote from over 300 journalists (via the FWA official website), as he comfortably fended off competition from Tottenham striker Harry Kane, while his Chelsea team-mate and captain John Terry finished third.

Hazard has scored 20 goals in all competitions this season with 16 of the coming in the Premier League as he played a vital role in ending the club’s five-year wait for a league title and also scored a crucial goal in the Capital One Cup semi-final against Liverpool en route to lifting that trophy.
