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.

McGregor face lawsuit over phone incident

Mixed martial artist and boxer Conor McGregor is faced a lawsuit after being charged in South Florida for stealing a mobile phone of someone who was trying to take his photo.

Miami-Dade County court records show that  Ahmed Abdirzak filed a lawsuit seeking more than $15,000 on Thursday, accusing 30-year-old McGregor of battery, assault and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

According to Miami Beach police,  McGregor was about to leave the Fontainebleau Miami Beach earlier on  Monday morning when Ahmed attempted to take a picture of McGregor. Miami Beach Police said Connor slapped the phone out of Ahmed’s hand and then trampled on it. Investigators say McGregor then snatched the phone and left the area. McGregor was later arrested on robbery and criminal mischief charges.

McGregor’s criminal defense attorney called the lawsuit “a quick effort seeking a payday.”
