Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has been nominated for February's Premier League Player of the Month award, along with West Ham midfielder Kevin Nolan and Liverpool duo Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge.
Hazard was Chelsea's standout player last month, producing a fine performance in the 1-0 victory over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium and scoring a sublime hat-trick in the 3-0 win over Newcastle United.
Nolan, meanwhile, scored a total of five Premier League goals for the Hammers during February. The 31-year-old midfielder netted braces in consecutive matches against Swansea City and Aston Villa, and also scored in the 3-1 win over Southampton at Upton Park.
Nolan faces stiff competition for the accolade from Liverpool starlet Raheem Sterling, who scored two goals during last month's emphatic 5-1 victory over Arsenal at Anfield, and Daniel Sturridge, who scored five league goals during February.
But can Hazard beat Nolan, Sterling and Sturridge to the award? Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will certainly be hoping so.
Following last month's victory over Newcastle, the Portuguese boss questioned why Hazard had not won the award this season.
"Eden Hazard is this player, a player for some reason he didn't get one single player of the month in this Premier League," Mourinho told Sky Sports. "I think everybody does [enjoys watching Hazard] only the people that gives the award don't enjoy that."
