Eden Hazard is well and truly back. The Belgian stepped up to the mark and delivered once again for Chelsea against Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.
Having scored a penalty at St. James’ Park to break the deadlock, and finally penetrate Newcastle’s sturdy back-line, Hazard was looking to bag his second goal in as many Premier League starts against the Cherries today – and did.
Hazard linked well with substitute Olivier Giroud down the right-hand-side before firing underneath Asmir Begovic with his ‘weaker’ left-foot. If you missed the game and Hazard’s goal, you can see a replay of it by clicking here.
Real Madrid must have been rueing their decision not to cough up the £200M watching Hazard in action today. He’s not only the best player in the Premier League, but once of the most talented you’ll find anywhere in the world at this current time.
Here are three Hazard stats which give us a clearer indication of how how good he is.
