(Video): Eden Hazard finally takes Chelsea ahead against Newcastle

eden hazard fouled repeatedly

Chelsea have finally opened the scoring at Newcastle after 76 minutes of play!

Marcos Alonso charges into the penalty box, where he’s taken down with a poor sliding tackle, leaving the ref with no other choice than to point to the spot. Eden Hazard, who was meant to be subbed off after 60-70 minutes of play, stepped up to take the penalty and slotted it home for a well-deserved Chelsea lead!

It’s been all-Chelsea so far, as Rafa Benitez’s side have simply focused on keeping their defence tight and hopes of a tie alive.

Could the Blues finally break the curse after five successive Premier League games without a win at St. James’ Park?
