Eden Hazards brilliant double secured Chelseas 2-0 victory over West Ham on Monday evening.

Maurizio Sarris side were dominant throughout the match, but it needed a world-class display and a sublime solo goal from Hazard to make the difference.

Picking up the ball midway in West Hams half, Hazard superbly slalomed past four players before evading a last-ditch sliding challenge to fire low past Lukasz Fabianski.

Hazard, who was sublime throughout the contest and a constant menace to West Hams defence, was denied a clear penalty before half-time after he was barged over by Marko Arnautovic.

But the Belgians goal was his 84th in the Premier League to put him level with the tally Cristiano Ronaldo ended up on during his time at Manchester United.
