Eden Hazard has won the PFA Fans’ Premier League Player of the Month award for October, beating the likes of Theo Walcott and Joe Allen.

More than 61,000 votes were cast in the poll, which was held recently, with Hazard winning with 27,262 votes.

Arsenal star Theo Walcott came second with 14,737 votes, narrowly ahead of Stoke City midfielder Joe Allen in third with 14,491. Rounding off the top six were Dele Alli (2,012), Charlie Austin (1,996) and Callum Wilson (1,073).

The six candidates were chosen by an expert panel, which included sports pundits Ian Holloway, Peter Beagrie and Paul Merson, Mike Riley – general manager of the Professional Game Match Officials, and Malcolm Clarke – chairman of the Football Supporters’ Federation.

And it is Hazard, who scored three goals and registered an assist during an excellent October, who has come out on top thanks to your votes, which have been verified by an independent party.
