Eden Hazard (left) scored a solo goal to put Chelsea in control
Eden Hazard scored a memorable solo goal as Chelsea moved a step closer to winning the Premier League with a 3-1 victory over Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
The Blues led 1-0 at half-time thanks to Marcos Alonso’s header, however, it was Hazard’s 53rd-minute strike that brought the house down in west London.
The Belgian glided past three Arsenal players during a run that started inside his own half before beating Petr Cech, who gifted Cesc Fabregas a third with a poor clearance.
The visitors managed a late consolation through Olivier Giroud’s header, with Chelsea now 12 points clear of their title rivals, although Liverpool and Tottenham can close the gap if they beat Hull and Middlesbrough respectively.
Antonio Conte, who had a full-strength squad to pick from, made just the one change from the Chelsea team that drew 1-1 at Liverpool in midweek, with Pedro replacing Willian in midfield.
Meanwhile, opposite number Arsene Wenger brought in Hector Bellerin, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott to the team that surprisingly lost at home to Watford on Tuesday night.
However, Bellerin only lasted 17 minutes before being substituted with a facial injury picked up trying to prevent Alonso putting Chelsea in front.
Eden Hazard scores Chelsea’s second goal
The goal came after Victor Moses released Pedro down the right, with the Spaniard swinging in an inviting cross that Diego Costa thumped against the bar, before Alonso beat Bellerin to the rebound to head home his fourth league goal of the season.
The Arsenal right-back was replaced by Gabriel, although the Brazilian endured a torrid start to his game as Chelsea looked to exploit the new man. They very nearly did just past the half-hour mark after Alonso found Pedro just inside the box, only for Cech to deny the forward.
