Chelsea 2-0 West Ham: Hazard justifies his £100m price tag with brilliant double
8 hours ago / R47
Chelsea climbed above Arsenal and Tottenham with a valuable victory over West Ham at Stamford Bridge.
24′ GOAL! Chelsea 1-0 West Ham (Hazard)
Chelsea lead 1-0 thanks to an absolutely sensational individual run from Hazard!
He took a simple pass 30 yards from goal, turned up the pitch and danced his way through three defenders without breaking stride, before poking a finish in at the far post! That’s one of the best bits of individual skill you will see all season!
78′ Barkley with a gloring miss!
Hazard leads another Chelsea break and slips Hudson-Odoi in down the right. The winger flashes an inviting ball across the face of goal for Barkley, but the substitute arrives just a split-second too late as he can only get a slight touch, not enough to turn it in.
89′ GOAL! Chelsea 2-0 West Ham (Hazard)
Barkley picks him out in space with a lovely ball over the top of the defence, and Hazard finishes expertly from a difficult angle!
An inspired Eden Hazard hit two splendid goals to lift Chelsea to a deserved 2-0 home win over West Ham and up to third in the Premier League.
The Belgium international slalomed past several players to score a brilliant opener midway through the first half and killed off the visitors’ resistance in the 90th minute as Maurizio Sarri’s men strengthened their aspirations of Champions League qualification.
Chelsea were especially captivating throughout the opening 45 minutes and now sit above Tottenham and Arsenal, though both teams have a game in hand.
The Blues’ triumph served as a significant boost at the outset of a busy period that takes them to Slavia Prague for the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final tie on Thursday.
