Cahill shouldn't be there and I haven't seen Bertrand be THAT good. If he were we would have milked Soton for much more in Jan. Azpi should be there. Been a very poor CB year because I can't think of anyome to take Cahill's place. Cesc in for Coutinho would be another to consider.

I don't know how I didn't fall asleep during the 2nd half of the EPL derby. And at the final whistle I thought the accounts were wrong and Chelsea mathematically won the title after this draw

Hazard won PotY btw.

Bournemouth won so Watford and they are getting promoted. I hope Middlesbrough make it through but this could mark the 2nd season in a row that PotY Patrick Bamford loses out on promotion in the playoffs with different teams. He might lose to his old team, Derby, too.

Hazard winning the Player of the Year award, truly deserved in my opinion. The only guy worthy rivaling him was Alexis. If Arsenal would be on top right now, I think the tables would be turned otherwise. Maybe not.

Young player of the year being Kane then, also deserved. I'm just wondering if he can keep it up the next season, or fold into the misery like Andy Carroll, which I think is very very unlikely. I don't know if he was nominated or not, but Ander Herrera deserves a mention here as well I think. A little bit of bias, but the the guy's been grandiose.

Don't know anything about the Championship though, not following it at all.

This raises a real hypothetical question - would Arsenal be in the place they are in right now with Hazard instead of Alexis. Maybe.. I think they're kind of equal, both in terms of skills and ability, both maestros on the field, but it's very difficult to rate one over another based on one season, so that's why I'm not doing that. But I would probably tend to go with Hazard.

Arsenal need goals more than creativity, and Alexis is a better goal scorer. Most of Hazard's goals come off penalties if I'm not mistaken. I think both teams would suffer if you swapped players.

If the players would be swapped, I too think Arsenal would suffer more, but. Hazard has a remarkable ability to score and create fantastic goals out of nothing even when their main strikers are out which has been the case for some parts of the season. Arsenal pretty much has no proper strikers at all, except for Welbeck who manages to score an odd goal here and there plus Giroud who turns up only for the last quarter of the season. Some serious instability there. But same goes for Alexis about the first part of the paragraph.

I don't know if I've seen too many Chelsea matches, but the guy (Hazard) has almost looked Messi-esque at times, he still has a long way to go of course. He's really good at cutting in from the left flank as well. Anyway that's why I'm saying they're really difficult to compare.

And Xaviesta he's not _that much_ hyped up at all, you just probably haven't seen him play that much is all.

Yes he is. I watch Chelsea almost every weekend. some people especially Chelsea fans say he's better than Messi. Some say he is better than Messi was at 24.

Hazard has 12 goals from open play. 12.
