Hazard: Chelsea don't need another striker

EPL Eden Hazard strikes to bring up century in Chelsea win

As the out-of-favour Brazilian readied himself, the cameras spotted Luiz's curly locks alongside youngster Ethan Ampadu's dreadlocks and gave Chelsea supporters a glimpse of an extremely hairy potential centre-back pairing.

Linking up well with Willian and Michy Batshuayi, Hazard opened the scoring for the Blues - just their second goal since drawing 2-2 with Arsenal on January 3rd.

Batshuayi's impatience in such situations may contribute to Antonio Conte's frustrations.

Chelsea are in the market for a new forward and had been interested in Arnautovic's team-mate Andy Carroll before injury scuppered a possible deal .

In the end, with Hazard in this form it might not have mattered too much.

But his impact seems to have been fairly immediate, on one part of their game at least. I like the way Hazard reacted from the Leicester game.

The Blues' 4-0 victory at struggling Brighton and Hove Albion - their first win in 90 minutes since the turn of the year - drew a line under a difficult recent run that had seen Conte's side struggle for goals. Aguero might have felt a little miffed that City were even in for another attacker, but if so he's channeling his frustration in a healthy direction. "The second yellow card was for dissent and you must pay attention, to stay calm and make the best decision".

Regis was most remembered for playing for West Brom and Coventry, where he won the FA Cup in 1987 with latter, and clubs up and down the country paid their respects with a minute's applause before kick off while players wore black armbands.

With Brighton pushing forward, Hazard brilliantly netted a third 13 minutes from time before Victor Moses made it four late on. Like a parent who'd seen this one too many times, Conte didn't look angry, just disappointed.

In the 25th minute Chelsea's attackers tore Brighton apart again, culminating in Hazard sliding Willian through on goal - who forced Ryan to push his fizzing shot around the post for a corner.

"Because we are missing chances people are saying we need another striker". All in all, a very good result for the Blues. He did what I asked him to do.

It's easy to see why a manager might want to shift formation in order to combat Chelsea. "Today I'm very satisfied with Batshuayi". Someone to rely upon and allow Hazard, Willian, Pedro or whoever else plays up front to bounce and buzz off them. Familiarity breeds contempt, after all, which means we have to actively work to appreciate the good things in our day-to-day lives. Some fifa pro club sh*t that was plus its always player with the big hair scoring', which is absolutely true. You don't know, it can happen.
