Eden Hazard has been named the PFA’s Premier League Player of the Month for October following his upturn in form under Antonio Conte.
The Blues playmaker struck three goals and claimed an assist in four appearances during the month, lifting the Stamford Bridge club to fourth in the Premier League table.
Hazard passed his personal tally from last season when he scored his fifth goal of the campaign against Southampton on Sunday.
Hazard won 27,262 votes in the poll by Sky Sports, with Arsenal’s Theo Walcott coming in second with 14,737.
Stoke’s Joe Allen, Tottenham’s Dele Alli and Southampton’s Charlie Austin were also included in the shortlist, as well as Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson.
