Eden Hazard notched a brace as Chelsea bounced back from successive league defeats with a 3-0 victory over West Brom at Stamford Bridge on Monday.
Olivier Giroud made his first start since arriving from Arsenal and Gary Cahill was dropped to the bench as manager Antonio Conte made four changes from the 4-1 defeat at Watford last week. Man of the match Hazard got things going for Chelsea after a slow start, linking with Giroud before sweeping the ball home on 25 minutes. After the restart West Brom failed to convert a handful of chances before Chelsea put the match to bed. Victor Moses finished cooly after controlling a deflected pass from Fabregas in the 65th minute, while Hazard sealed all three points by rifling a strike past Ben Foster eight minutes later. The victory puts Chelsea back in fourth place, one point above Tottenham and one point back of third-placed Liverpool. Feb 12 - 5:33 PM

Having entered the day with just one league goal since Week 15, Eden Hazard bagged a pair as Chelsea took an early lead to put Brighton away, 0-4.

Thibaut Courtois was absent with an ankle injury and Andreas Christensen would leave the match early with a likely concussion but it was an otherwise flawless performance from Chlesea, who scored twice inside of six minutes, coasted their way to the second half, and added two more to make it a rout. Hazard struck first, putting away a low cross from Victor Moses. Willian doubled the lead three minutes later, finishing a brilliant series of passes last assisted by Michy Batshuayi. Hazard grabbed his second after collecting a pass from Willian before knifing his way through the Brighton defense. Moses then capped off the affair, tucking away a brilliant ball from Charly Musonda. Chelsea move up to third in the table with the win.

Eden Hazard looked in top form as Chelsea overcame an early deficit to easily put away Newcastle United, 3-1.

It was all Chelsea and all Hazard from start to finish, but an early Newcastle goal kept the result from being sealed until a third Chelsea goal came with a quarter hour to go. The Blues got on the board first through Hazard, scoring an equalizer by pouncing on an attempted clearance and blasting home in the 21st minute. Twelve minutes later, Chelsea went from trailing to leading as Alvaro Morata headed in a Victor Moses cross. Hazard would seal it by scoring a penalty that resulted from a foul on Moses in the 71st minute, but the Belgian had nine shots on target in total. In fine form, he will be a coveted fantasy addition this week.

Eden Hazard led the way for the champions as they destroyed scuffling West Brom 4-0 at the Hawthorns in Week 12 action.

Eden Hazard started the season slowly but has come on strong over the last month and reasserted his place as one of the top players in the world. The Belgium international was at it again against West Brom scoring the 2nd and 4th goals for the Blues. Hazard was joined in his dominance by Cesc Fabregas who had two assists and Alvaro Morata who had a goal and an assist as the outcome was never in doubt for Antonio Conte's men.

Eden Hazard finally scored his first Premier League goal of the season as Chelsea won a tightly contested 1-0 victory over Bournemouth on the south coast.

Hazard has started the season slowly after spending the summer recovering from an injury. He picked up his first assist in Week 9 and finally, ten weeks into the season, scored his first goal. The Blues had other opportunities as well including a controversial disallowed goal from Alvaro Morata in the first half. The Blues also allowed a few solid opportunities to their hosts including an open shot from Lewis Cook near the end of the match that was aimed poorly and ended up heading right at Thibaut Courtois. The win saw Chelsea join Arsenal in gaining ground on Spurs who dropped three points against Manchester United earlier today.

Eden Hazard made his first start of the season in the club's 5-1 win in the League Cup against Nottingham Forest.

The Belgian midfielder sustained an ankle injury in June while on international duty, causing him to miss three months before returning earlier this month. However, manager Antonio Conte wanted to ease Hazard back into the starting XI, which he finally did as he completed the full match Wednesday. The winger recorded two assists for the Blues, helping MIchy Batshuayi secure a hat-trick in the process. Said Conte: "I hope to be with him at the final step from his injury. In my [playing] career I was injured a lot and I have a bit of experience. With him, we are managing the situation well...Eden is a top player, and he improved a lot. He can continue to improve in his career and become one of the best."

Chelsea star Eden Hazard is fit and available for selection this weekend having recovered from a broken ankle suffered on international duty with Belgium in June.

Hazard will be in the Chelsea squad for the first time this season when the Premier League champions travel to Leicester City on Saturday. The 26-year-old is one of the top attackers in the top-flight and is a must-start in all fantasy formats if he makes the starting XI at the King Power Stadium. However, it's unclear how much playing time he will see as he has yet to play the full 90 minutes in a match this season. The 26-year-old featured in both of Belgium's World Cup qualifying matches over the international break, starting and scoring in the win over Gibraltar, while playing 16 minutes off the bench Greece. Said Antonio Conte: "Now I can count on him [Hazard], but I have to decide the right moment and the right minutes for him. When there is a bad injury and surgery, it’s normal to pay attention to the recovery."

Eden Hazard played in a match against QPR at Chelsea's training ground on Thursday, but manager Antonio Conte isn't expected to risk the playmaker against Tottenham on Sunday.

While Tiemoue Bakayoko could be in the mix this weekend, Conte appears set to take a difference stance with Hazard. The Belgian international just recently returned to full training in his bid to recover from an ankle fracture and, though he wasn't technically ruled out of the Week 2 affair at Wembley, doesn't appear to be in Conte's game plan. This means Alvaro Morata will lead the attack, with Willian and Michy Batshuayi most likely in support against Spurs. Conte added: "Hazard is improving but to be fully fit he needs time. We must have patience with him and try to do the best for him."

Chelsea have been handed a huge boost by the return of playmaker Eden Hazard to full first-team training, as the Belgium international continues to work his way back from a fractured ankle.

The 26-year-old opted for off-season surgery on his right ankle after suffering the injury while on international duty in June. While Hazard is still expected to miss a handful of matches, with Antonio Conte yet to announce a potential return date for his star, his impending return is certainly a boost of confidence after the 3-2 defeat against Burnley at the weekend. For the duration of Hazard's absence, Wilian and Michy Batshauyi will compete for a place in the starting XI. Meanwhile, summer signing Tiemoue Bakayoko was also spotted on the training pitch but won't likely be ready for this weekend's clash with Tottenham.

Chelsea have been handed a major boost as star Eden Hazard has returned to light training ahead of schedule after a serious ankle injury.

The 26-year-old Belgian, who underwent surgery after fracturing his ankle on international duty at the beginning of June, was expected to be out of action until at least early September. But it appears the former Premier League Player of the Year could be back much sooner than expect after he was spotted on the training pitch at Chelsea's Cobham training ground on Monday. The playmaker's return to light training has come well ahead of schedule, however, it remains unclear whether or not he will be fit for the start of season. While Antonio Conte will likely air on the side of caution with Hazard, the Italian boss will undoubtedly be pleased with the positive strides his star is making.

Chelsea confirm Eden Hazard successfully underwent surgery on Monday after sustaining a fracture to his right ankle while training with the Belgian national team.

But while an initial timeline of between 6-8 weeks was touted by some, his injury appears worse than first feared, and now it seems that Hazard will miss the start of the 2017/18 Premier League season. A club statement confirmed: "He is expected to return to training in approximately three months," which should mean he is back in competitive action by mid-to-late September, probably after the international break. Reports from Spain suggest the news will not deter Real Madrid, who are said to be hankering for a cut-price deal for the crocked star. However, I’d suggest that in the first instance, a move during the summer transfer window is now highly unlikely, and secondly, with Chelsea reluctant to let their star player leave, there will be no room to negotiate a reduced fee despite his injury.

Chelsea have been rocked by the news that Eden Hazard could miss the start of the new Premier League season after sustaining an ankle injury while on international duty.

The Belgium Football Association announced on Sunday afternoon that Hazard would be taken for tests after suffering a suspected ankle sprain in training. However, upon further examination, it now looks like the Chelsea star could be side-lined for up-to three months. An X-ray confirmed Hazard suffered a fracture to his right ankle - most likely an avulsion fracture – which was caused by the ligament or tendon pulling so hard, that it ripped a small piece of bone off. The good news for Chelsea supporters is that the injury is likely to scupper any chances of Real Madrid landing Hazard during this transfer window due to his inability to undertake a full medical assessment before the transfer deadline.

Reports suggest that Real Madrid are lining up a £100m bid to tempt Eden Hazard from Chelsea.

Los Blancos could retain their Champions League title in Cardiff – against Juventus – on Saturday night but the Spanish giants already have one eye on summer business and Hazard appears to top of their shopping list along with Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea. A rejuvenated Hazard was back to his best this season helping Chelsea secure their fifth Premier League title, and it is on the back of these performances, that will prompt Real to part with a world record sum to land their top target. However, Russian billionaire owner Roman Abramovich has a track record of refusing to sell his best players, and with three years remaining on his current deal, Chelsea may not ready to part with their prize asset. It also appears that United have rebuffed a £60m bid for De Gea who still has two years to run on his contract with a further 12-month option available.

Eden Hazard has not done himself any favors with Chelsea fans hoping the star will avoid the pull of a big summer move.

The Chelsea winger has been linked with a move to Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain after a bounce-back season. When asked about signing a new contract, Hazard gave the standard line, saying he will wait until the end of the season to assess his situation: "There is no sign of a new contract for the moment. I am focused on the last month, and we will talk later. It's not in my mind now. I have two or three years left. I just want to finish the season well and we will see afterwards."

While admitting that he is not thinking about the future, Eden Hazard hinted that he could be interested in playing for another club.

Hazard has enjoyed a return to form with 14 goals this season, which has led to a Player of the Year nomination along with rumors linking him with a summer move to Real Madrid. The Belgian international didn't do much to stop the links, saying he might consider leaving the club in the indefinite future despite being happy at Chelsea: "When it's not PSG, it's Real Madrid, then maybe it's Bayern Munich... strangely last year there wasn't anybody. I may also have personal ambitions to play in other clubs. But I'm trying to focus on the present, end up in Chelsea this year. I have a contract until 2020. For now, I'm here and good here."
