Eden Hazard overtakes Cristiano Ronaldo record with superb double as Chelsea beat West Ham

Maurizio Sarri’s 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 Ham’s 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 Ham’s defence, was denied a clear penalty before half-time after he was barged over by Marko Arnautovic.

But the Belgian’s 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.
