Eden Hazard brace ensure three more points for Blues as Sarri’s men leapfrog Arsenal to the third position of the Premier League table.
Maurizio Sarri’s third straight win in the Premier League and they are third for the first time since December 4.
Chelsea will miss him if he goes. We all will. Even by Eden Hazard’s elevated standards, this was on an altogether different plain. Another planet, almost.
Not that Mark Noble, Declan Rice, Fabian Balbuena, Angelo Ogbonna and Ryan Fredericks would have appreciated his splendour. Hazard left all five in his wake to score a mesmeric solo goal to invigorate Chelsea’s hopes of Champions League qualification.
No doubt, the Hammers quintet won’t be the only ones who’ll be glad to see the back of him if — as is looking increasingly likely — Hazard signs for Real Madrid this summer.
