EDEN HAZARD fired Chelsea to third in the Premier League on Monday as he grabbed both goals in a 2-0 win over West Ham United at Stamford Bridge.
Hazard’s slalom through the opposition before scoring the Chelsea opener didn’t exactly leave the West Ham fans speechless. “Eden Hazard,” they chanted at Stamford Bridge, “he’s off to Madrid.”
For now Hazard’s feet are very much in west London. But maybe not for much longer, given even Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri accepts his brightest talent might be heading out of England.
The mesmerizing move before Hazard’s 24th minute-goal was far from a flash of brilliance against West Ham. Hazard produced a fine individual display, capped by scoring again in the 90th minute to complete a 2-0 victory that lifted Chelsea to third in the Premier League.
With 19 goals this season, Hazard has matched his previous-best Chelsea tally from 2014 to 15.
With only a season left on his contract, Chelsea could find it hard to keep hold of its biggest asset.(SD-Agencies)
