Hazard nominated for PL Goal of the Season award
- The Belgian was included in the 10-strong shortlist for his strike against West Ham.
- Among other players on the list are Man City's Company, Spurs' Son Heung-Min and Reds' Sturridge.
Eden Hazard entered a 10-man shortlist for the Premier League Goal of the Season award.
The 28-year-old forward was included in the list automatically as the winner in the same category in April. His stunning solo effort in the West Ham game was truly the highlight of the month.

Now, he will have to compete with the rest of the players who were granted this honour plus Vincent Company whose strike in the game against Leicester took pretty much everybody by surprise.
As for the rest of contenders, two of them were included in the shortlist thanks to their strikes against the Blues. Our ex-player Daniel Sturridge scored for Liverpool in September, while the November award went to Spurs' Son Heung-Min.
Eden Hazard has enjoyed a successful season personally, even though he was controversially omitted from the PFA's Team of the Year. He was the unchallenged Player of the Season at Chelsea and included in the shortlist for the Player of the Year award both by PFA and Premier League, though he fell short of the victory on both occasions.
