Eden Hazard is racking up some seriously impressive numbers for Chelsea at the moment, adding two goals against Newcastle on Saturday.
The Belgian has been essential to Chelsea since his return from injury, and he brings the team an attacking sparkle they miss when he’s not present – as in midweek against Swansea.

His double goal hail on Saturday could have been even richer had he sunk a couple of the other chances he had before being subbed off.
Chelsea have managed to win the majority of games the Belgian has missed this season, but they just don’t convince. The new formation that has him up front with Alvaro Morata just can’t function with a lesser option in the role, which often forces a change to 343 when the little wizard is being rested.
England should beware next summer at the World Cup. If Hazard keeps playing like this there will simply be no stopping him in 2018.
