The 24-year-old Eden Hazard has won the Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year award.
Hazard has scored 13 goals and made eight assists in 33 Premier League games to help leaders Chelsea move to the cusp of the title.
The award was voted for by the Belgian midfielder’s fellow professionals.
Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane, 21, was named PFA Young Player of the Year, while Chelsea midfielder Ji So-Yun took the Women’s Player of the Year award.
Hazard, who won last season’s young player accolade, was handed the prize at the Grosvenor Hotel in London on Sunday.
“I’m very happy. One day I want to be the best and what I did this season is play very well, Chelsea played very well,” he said.
“I don’t know if I deserve to win but it is good for me. It is better to be voted by the players – they know everything about football.
“Personally I have played a good season, I have been there in the big games and I scored a lot of important goals, this is why I’m better this season.”
