Hazard's impressive stats that prove he was Premier League player of the season

15 May 2019, 13:50

The just-concluded English Premier League season will go down as one of the most memorable in history, with a tense season finale on the last day as Manchester City defended their title.

Both City and Liverpool had star performers, with the likes of Van Dijk, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Bernado Silva, Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling collectively helping their teams week in week out. 

However, it was Chelsea's Eden Hazard who stood out in one of his best campaigns in the Premier League, which might also be his last, with reports rife that he has already agreed to move to Real Madrid after Chelsea's Europa League final against Arsenal. 

The Belgian shone brightest for the Blues once again in an indifferent season that has been somehow salvaged with Champions League qualification and a Europa League final appearance. 

Despite his omission from the PFA XI, Hazard ticked in almost all boxes in the Premier League, dwarfing most of the players in the squad. 

 

 

Top playmaker

He took home the top assist's title after contributing to 16 Premier League goals to the Chelsea side, beating the Ryan Fraser of AFC Bournemouth, who assisted 14 times.  Liverpool's Trent Alexander and Spurs' Cristian Eriksen tied in third with 12 assists each.

Most fouled player

Hazard is known for his direct play and amazing dribbling skills, which have set him above many of the top performers in Europe. His skills mean he is consistently fouled.

In the just-concluded season, Hazard was fouled 69 times, the highest in the league. Wilfred Zaha came in behind Hazard having been fouled 63 times, while Arsenal's Lucas Torreira was third having won 52 fouls. 

Key man-of-the-match

The former Lille star has single-handedly won Chelsea several matches, and it was no surprise that he was awarded the most in English's top flight. 

Most take-ons

Hazard's dribbling skills mean he fancies taking players on and will even draw defenders just to take them on and whizz past them. He enjoys dribbling. It's no surprise that he won the most take-ons title.

Most dribbles completed

The Chelsea man is arguably the best dribbler in the world, and maybe on the same level as Lionel Messi. He won the most dribbles completed in EPL and was second in Europe only behind Borussia Dortmund's sensation Jadon Sancho. He was ahead of Messi, who was Europe's third best dribbler. 

Other titles that  Hazard took home include most goal contribution for Chelsea, and he also made history by becoming the first player to win all three major club awards during the Blues' end of the season awards. 

 

With the mercurial Belgian only 28 and playing arguably his best football, there are no signs of him slowing down any time soon.

And with his said move to Madrid, he can only get better.
