Chelsea beat Manchester City as Eden Hazard’s brace puts the Blues seven points clear


Chelsea now have one hand on the Premier League trophy as they ground out a 2-1 victory against Manchester City.

And not for the first time this season, it was Eden Hazard who took the plaudits with a brace and a man of the match performance.

Chelsea took the lead in the 10th minute when Eden Hazard’s strike at goal glanced off the head of returning City skipper Vincent Kompany and into the goal.

Although it took it slight deflection, Willy Caballero should really have done better.

But another goalkeeping error, this time from Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois, saw the visitors back in the game.

Courtois’ kick-out went straight to David Silva. The Spaniard fired an effort at goal that Courtois could only parry out to Sergio Aguero, and he tapped home for 1-1.

But Premier League pace-setters Chelsea ensured they went in at the break ahead. Fernandinho tripped Pedro in the box, and although Hazard saw his original penalty saved, he scored from Caballero’s parry out.
