Chelsea soldier on with Hazard’s hat-trick

Hazard celebrates one of his goals.

A hat-trick from Eden Hazard gave host, Chelsea a comfortable lead in their 4-1 crushing of Cardiff in last Saturday Premiership match.

Chelsea made it five wins from as many games under Maurizio Sarri and Saturday encounter showed that The Blues are in a world of their own.

Sarri is still to taste anything but victory in English football, but had a scare early on at home to Cardiff when Sol Bamba put the visitors in front at Stamford Bridge.

However, Cardiff’s failure to significantly strengthen over the summer means they are liable to being outclassed at this level and were undone by the brilliance of Hazard.

“I thought that Hazard was one of the best players in Europe. But now I change my mind because maybe he is the best,” said Sarri.

The Belgian scored twice in seven minutes to send Chelsea in ahead at halftime and completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot before Willian added a fourth.
