Eden Hazard is the Premier League’s Playmaker of the Season. He may not have added to his total of 15 assists for the season at Leicester today but no player elsewhere managed to overhaul that figure which is how the accolade is judged.
Hazard’s involvement in the latter stages of goals being scored in 2018/19 reaches 31 when those he scored and assisted are added together, his best such total since joining Chelsea.
Speaking after the game at the King Power Stadium, Hazard was asked which has been his favourite assist this season and what he prefers, scoring or making goals.
‘I just prefer to win the game,’ he replied.
‘When I see the ball in the net I am just happy for the other player who has scored but I think the assist for Ruben Loftus-Cheek against Fulham is maybe one of the best.
The Belgian was also asked about the acclaim he received from the Chelsea fans who were at the game.
‘It is a good story between us and that is why I give everything when I am on the pitch,’ he said.
