Chelsea young gun Hazard scoops young player award

Chelsea's Eden Hazard has been named the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) Young Player of the Year for the 2013/14 season.

The 23-year old Belgian winger has scored 14 goals and provided seven assists in the Premier League season to win the award from Liverpool pair Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge, Everton's Ross Barkley, Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey and Southampton left back Luke Shaw.

"It's always good to win awards because it means you've had a good season, but I prefer to win things collectively and I must say thank you to all my Chelsea team-mates, the staff and the fans," said Hazard.

The former Lille star succeeds former Tottenham ace Gareth Bale (now with Real Madrid) as the PFA young player of the year and becomes the first Chelsea player to win since Scott Parker in 2003/04 after he crossed from Charlton Athletic midseason.
