CHELSEA boss Jose Mourinho believes Eden Hazard should be picking up more individual awards for his match-winning performances, after the Belgian international scored a hat-trick to send the Blues to the top of the Premier League.
Hazard’s three goals against Newcastle earned Chelsea a 3-0 home win, allowing the west Londoners to leap-frog rivals Arsenal and Manchester City into pole position.
The 23-year-old’s 14 goals this season have seen him become a leading candidate for the player of the season award.
“We are in February – and zero player of the month awards [for Hazard],” Mourinho complained. “Our league must be full of unbelievable players because this kid – not one single award. The difference against Newcastle was the goals he scored. The kid is playing fantastic, really.”
Chelsea travel to West Brom tomorrow night looking to extend their lead.
