Jamie Carragher has named Chelsea star Eden Hazard as his player of the year.
Hazard has helped Chelsea to a seven point lead at the top of the table, and Carragher believes he deserved the nod ahead of the likes of Harry Kane and Alexis Sanchez.
The Belgian ace provided a key assist for Cesc Fabregas to score the only goal in Chelsea's 1-0 win over QPR on Sunday, taking his Premier League tally to eight for the season, while he's also bagged 12 goals.
When quizzed over who he would pick for the player of the year prize, the Liverpool defender told TalkSPORT: “I’d go for (Eden) Hazard. I think he’s the best player in the league.
"But while I think he’s been brilliant this season, I don’t think there’s been anyone like Luis Suarez was last season, where it was obvious to everyone. There’s a debate this year. Hazard is Chelsea’s best player, and it looks like they’re going to go and win the league. I’d go for him.”
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was adamant yesterday that Hazard deserves to win the prize, describing the former Lille star as 'by far' the best player in the league.
Chelsea back in for Miranda
Chelsea could make a move for Atletico Madrid defender Miranda in the next transfer window, according to the Daily Mail.
It has been claimed that the Brazilian ace, who has struggled for opportunities in La Liga at times this term, is now ready to move to England after rejecting the opportunity to move to Stamford Bridge last term.
The Mirror also suggest that Miranda wants to be reunited with the duo of Filipe Luis and Diego Costa, who are both currently playing their football at Stamford Bridge under Jose Mourinho.
