Hazard only made five appearances for Belgium in 2017, as opposed to De Bruyne's eight, though the Chelsea star produced several fine performances, scoring three and assisting two in those games.

His outstanding displays saw him claim 10,280 votes, more than double the 4,710 that De Bruyne amassed, with Romelu Lukaku rounding off the top three with 3,223 entries.
