Hazard scored twice, Chelsea came in third

The Belgian made a big contribution in a 2-0 win over West Ham in Round 33 of the Premier League on 8 April.

Sarri: 'Chelsea have to play 3 days a game because they can buy all players' / Hazard can land Real in the next few days.

* Goal: Hazard 24 '& 90'.

This result helps Chelsea to overcome Arsenal and Tottenham to occupy third place in the Premier League. Maurizio Sarri teachers and more than two rivals with the city and three points in turn, but are also kicking more than one match.

Chelsea fans have called for sacking Sarri after a tough victory against Cardiff a few weeks ago. However, the Stamford Bridge team has shown a different face in the last two matches, as they have won Brighton and West Ham in turn and kept a clean sheet. The game "Sarri-ball" seems to be finding the same efficiency as the early season, and Chelsea is back strong in the top 4 race.

Sarri's team dominated from the early minutes and dominated the ball. But they did not create a significant threatening situation, apart from Emerson's free-kick shot. Still, Chelsea opened the score thanks to Eden Hazard's brilliant moment, when he passed the ball over five West Ham players and defeated goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski. Hazard's speed, dexterity and calm shown in the ball can be considered one of the best goals this season in the Premier League.

Two minutes later, Chelsea almost doubled the gap when Gonzalo Higuain slipped out behind the West Ham defense to pick up Hazard's long pass. However, the kick in the narrow corner of the Argentine striker could not win Fabianski. Callum Hudson-Odoi young talent, in the second major kick, continued to impress. He sprinted to catch Hazard's opening ball in a counterattack before smashing the bar.

Chelsea struggled even more in the second half when West Ham's counter-defensive play was more proactive with the participation of Robert Snodgrass. Sarri's teachers and students had the opportunity to finish off their opponents, but Ruben Loftus-Cheek finished too well against the goalkeeper, and Olivier Giroud could not defeat former team-mate Fabianski in a tight corner.

Striking a lot but not scoring, Chelsea caused their fans to experience a heart attack when Marko Arnautovic headed wide from a free kick. It wasn't until the last minute of the match that Hazard decided the outcome of the match. The midfielder, who is being chased by Real Madrid, restrains Ross Barkley's pass, then scores a goal.

Not only did it scramble for a place in the top 4, Chelsea also had another morning to win the Champions League ticket next season, it was crowned at the Europa League. What has been shown recently shows that Sarri teachers and students are capable of fulfilling both goals. Meanwhile, West Ham still ranked 11th after the third defeat in the last four games.
