4. KANE WITH YOUNG PLAYER OF THE YEAR AWARD

STORY: Chelsea’s Belgium forward Eden Hazard won England’s PFA player of the year award ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane and Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea on Sunday (April 26).

England striker Kane, 21, was voted young player of the year at the Professional Footballers’ Association awards dinner with Hazard, 24, second and Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho, 22, third.

“I’m very happy,” Hazard said. “One day I want to be the best and it’s what I did this season, I played very well, Chelsea played very well. I don’t know if I deserved to win but it’s good for me,” the Belgian added.

“It’s better to be voted for by the players because they know everything about football,” added Hazard, who has played in all of table-topping Chelsea’s 33 Premier League games this season, scoring 13 goals and 18 in all competitions.

“Personally I played a very good season, I was there in the big games and I scored a lot of goals, important goals, this is why I’m better this season.”

Hazard has already helped Chelsea win the League Cup this term and they are two wins away from clinching the Premier League title for the first time since 2010.

Kane, who scored 79 seconds into his England debut, is the second-highest scorer in the league with 20 goals, one behind Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero, and has 30 in all competitions.

“Amazing. A very proud moment for myself and for my family as well. Hopefully the first of many to come, I’ve got to keep working hard but to be recognised by your players is something special and definitely a night I won’t forget.

“I’ve always believed in my ability and just waiting to get the chance to express myself. I probably didn’t think it would go as quickly as it has done but I’ve just managed to kind of ride the wave. The season has got better and better and yes this has topped it off. Like I said I hope this is just the beginning and there is more to come.”
