Hazard and Higuain's goals nominated for monthly prize

Hazard & Higuain Goals Nominated For Award

Eden Hazard's stunning solo strike against West Ham and Gonzalo Higuain's Burnley blockbuster have been nominated for the Premier League Goal of the Month award, and you can help them win. 

Vote for Hazard or Higuain

The Chelsea's pair standout strikes are both on the eight-goal shortlist for the Carling Goal of the Month, and you can relive them in all their glory above.

Hazard's slalom run through the heart of the West Ham team took the breath away and he finished in style on his left foot. Then in our next home league game, against Burnley, an intricate Chelsea move ended with Higuain thrashing the ball into the net off the underside of the bar after Cesar Azpilicueta's clever backheel had created space for the Argentinean. 

Willian was the last Chelsea player to receive the award for his goal against Brighton and Hove Albion last January, capping another exquisite team move. It was also voted the 2018 Chelsea Goal of the Season. 

Hazard has already won the award once, for his solo effort against Arsenal in February 2017, while Pedro has a joint-record two Goal of the Months to his name. 

The vote is decided by a combination of a public vote and an expert panel. You can help one of our players win by clicking here and following the voting process. 

‘Something special!’ Hazard said of his goal. 

‘It’s just something special. I took the ball, when I could go forward I tried to go forward and in the box it’s hard for the defender to touch me, because maybe it’s a penalty. I was a bit lucky in the end when I shot but it was a good goal to be fair. I just wanted to shoot quick and when I saw the ball in the net I was just happy.'
