Eden Hazard has been named Chelsea Player of the Year at the club’s end of season after his resurgent form helped steer the club towards a second Premier League title in three years.
Voted for by fans, Hazard received his prize at the ceremony on Sunday night and it is the third such time he has been given the accolade after previously winning in 2013/14 and 2014/15.
The Belgian also won Goal of the Season for his solo strike against Arsenal in February.
N’Golo Kante was the top choice for those within the club, though, taking home the Players’ Player of the Year award. The diminutive Frenchman had already collected a clean sweep of PFA, FWA and Premier League Player of the Year honours for his incredible season.
“Because we spend so long together, and we win together and we lose together, to be named by the other players is something special,” Kante said.
“I spent a very good season here. We were unlucky we did not win [the FA Cup] but it was a good season and hopefully next season we are going to be stronger.”
Teenage midfielder Mason Mount is a name for fans to look out for in the future after he was presented with the Academy Player of the Year prize. A Chelsea player since the age of six, he captained the side that saw the club retain the FA Youth Cup yet again.
England international winger Karen Carney was named Chelsea Ladies Player of the Year.
