To mark eight years since we signed Eden Hazard, we take a look at some of greatest moments for Chelsea FC!
PFA Young Player of the Year in His Second Season at Chelsea FC
In his second season at Chelsea, Eden Hazard turned it up a notch on the pitch. Scoring his first ever Premier League hat-trick against Newcastle and later bagging a brace in an away victory at Sunderland, Hazard’s influence on the side was evident. Deservedly, Eden topped it off by winning the PFA Young Player of the Year award for his brilliant performances throughout the season.
Winning the Premier League for Chelsea FC in 2014/15
The 2014/15 Premier League campaign was a monumental one for the Chelsea FC talisman, as Eden Hazard became the go-to man for his side and one of the main reasons behind Chelsea's Premier League success. In addition to helping the Blues win the Premier League, Hazard won Chelsea’s Player of the Year award, PFA Player of the Year, Premier League Player of the Season and the FWA Footballer of the Year, becoming the only player in Chelsea FC history to have won all four in one season.
Solo Goal vs Arsenal, Premier League, 2016/17
One of the most memorable moments from Hazard is perhaps his breathtaking goal against Arsenal in the Premier League in 2017, ending any hopes of the title for the Gunners. The Belgian received the ball near the halfway line, dribbled his way past the Arsenal defence, before calmly lifting the ball past former Blue Petr Cech. The goal doubled Chelsea's lead, cementing their place at the top of table and Hazard’s incredible solo effort will forever be remembered by Chelsea fans!
Equaliser vs Tottenham, Premier League, 2015/16
Dubbed as the ‘Battle of the Bridge’, the fixture against Chelsea’s fiercest rivals promised to be a thriller. Spurs were chasing three points to keep their title hopes alive and were leading 2-0 at half-time. In the second half, however, Eden Hazard took over. A goal from Gary Cahill halved the deficit and then Hazard shattered the dreams of our north London rivals with a stunning curling effort from the edge of the box. That’s when it all exploded, as the match turned into a heated battle but Chelsea held on, meaning Hazard’s goal was enough to give Leicester City the unlikeliest of Premier League titles.
Europa League Final, 2019
It was only fitting that the enormous contribution Eden Hazard had on Chelsea be met with a winning farewell. It lived up to the standards of his Chelsea career as the Belgian made sure the trophy came home to Stamford Bridge, scoring a brace in a 4-1 rout of the Gunners. Cool as ice throughout the game, he left an unforgettable mark in Baku that night and on all Chelsea fans, as he said his final goodbye in style!
