Eden Hazard on Friday night won three awards at Chelsea’s awards end of season ceremony, claiming the prize for Chelsea Player of the Year, Players’ Player of the Year and Goal of the Season.

He has also won the main prize – Chelsea Player of the Year – for the fourth year running, breaking another club record.

No Blues player has recorded more goals or assists than the Belgian, who has scored 19 times and assisted 16 more in 50 appearances across all competitions.

He also has the highest combined total of goals and assists – with 16 and 15, respectively – in the Premier League so far this season, while also ranking highest in the division for chances created, successful dribbles and touches in the opposition box.

The 28-year-old earned the club’s Goal of the Season award for his incredible match-winning, solo strike against Liverpool at Anfield in the Carabao Cup.

Hazard’s phenomenal goal saw him lift that accolade for the third time in his Chelsea career and his Players’ Player of the Year was his second in a Blues shirt.

Young forward, Callum Hudson-Odoi picked up the Young Player of the Year award.

He made his first Premier League start this season, scoring five goals and five assists across all competitions and was an important part of the squad that qualified for the Europa League final in Baku, Azerbaijan.

His season was brought to a premature end, however, when he ruptured his Achilles tendon during a 2-2 draw with Burnley in the Premier League.

There was also time taken to commemorate the service of central defender Gary Cahill, who is set to leave the club after spending over seven years at Stamford Bridge.
