Eden Hazard

Chelsea FC

• Named Ligue 1 Player of the Year for the second successive season after registering 20 goals and 15 assists – both personal-best tallies – to help LOSC Lille finish third in the division.

• Ended his fourth full season at LOSC by scoring the first hat-trick of his senior career – in a 4-1 home win against AS Nancy-Lorraine; the following month he signed for European champions Chelsea FC in a €40m deal.

• Made a bright start to life in England, setting up a succession of goals as Chelsea stormed to the top of the Premier League, and also helped Belgium make an impressive start to the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign with three wins and a draw in their opening four fixtures.
