Leicester City v Chelsea FC - Premier League

Chelsea midfielder seals second edition of award after claiming 15 assists during the Premier League season

Chelsea's Eden Hazard claimed the 2018/19 Premier League Playmaker of the Season Award even though he played only 21 minutes in the final match of the season.

Hazard had 15 assists going into the final day, one ahead of Ryan Fraser.

The Belgian was rested to the bench by Maurizio Sarri at Leicester City while Fraser started at Selhurst Park for AFC Bournemouth.

But Fraser was unable to pull level despite AFC Bournemouth scoring three times against Crystal Palace

So, even though he came off the bench on 69 minutes Hazard did not need to add to his tally to become the second player to claim the award, presented by Cadbury.

The inaugural Playmaker Award was won last season by Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne.
