Hazard in contention for Player of the Month prize

Eden Hazard is among the contenders for December’s EA Sports Premier League Player of the Month award, and you can vote for the Belgian to win the prize for the second time this season.

Hazard has been named on a seven-man shortlist following a month in which he flourished playing as a ‘false nine’, providing both goals and assists for the team.

He was directly involved in eight of the 10 goals we scored during December, scoring three and recording five assists.

The attacker netted a brace in the Boxing Day win at Watford with what were his 100th and 101st goals for the club, becoming only the 10th player in our history to achieve that milestone, having also been on target in the 2-1 win at Brighton.

The Belgian also provided assists for both N’Golo Kante and David Luiz during our 2-0 win over Manchester City, as well as laying on two goals for Ruben Loftus-Cheek and one for Pedro over the course of the month.

Hazard previously won the award in September after scoring five goals in four matches.
