With the Eden Hazard era at Chelsea coming to a close with an agreement reached for his move to Real Madrid, we’ve picked out five of his best goals in a Blue shirt. Do you agree with our selection? If we’ve missed any out that you think should be included then let us know via the comments section over in the 5th Stand app.
Shooting hard against Stoke in 2013
The Belgian put the seal on a 4-0 away win against the Potters in some style back in January 2013, smashing the ball home from 30 yards out. As soon as Eden struck at goal, you just knew it was destined for the far corner. What a hit!
Denying Tottenham in 2016
A goal that Leicester City fans rejoiced over in 2016, as Hazard scored late on to ensure we prevented Tottenham from lifting the Premier League for the first time and instead it was the Foxes crowned champions. Spurs were 2-0 up at Stamford Bridge before Gary Cahill pulled a goal back. Then, step forward Eden Hazard. The Belgian shrugged off Eric Dier, played a one-two with Diego Costa and then beautifully bent the ball into the top corner to send the Chelsea fans wild.
Cutting through Arsenal in 2017
Another north London side would be on the receiving end of a stunning Hazard goal at Stamford Bridge the following season, as Eden inspired us to the title. Picking the ball up in his own half, the Belgian set off towards the Arsenal goal, holding off a number of defenders and sending them spinning before slotting home for a truly brilliant solo goal.
Winning away at Liverpool in 2018
A goal that would be named as our Goal of the Season, Hazard stunned Anfield with a superb solo goal to settle our third round Carabao Cup tie. Picking the ball up on the far side, Eden ran past Naby Keita before putting the ball through the legs of Alberto Moreno and then smashing into the top corner. What a strike!
Waltzing past West Ham in 2019
While Hazard’s goal against Liverpool was named as our Goal of the Season, his strike against West Ham at Stamford Bridge later in the season was a very close second. Driving at the Hammers defence, Hazard slalomed his way through West Ham’s backline, passing four players before poking the ball beyond the goalkeeper and into the far corner. A goal you could watch over and over again!
