Premier League table: Chelsea defeat West Ham, move up to third place

CHELSEA fans must cherish every last minute of Eden Hazard’s remaining time at Stamford Bridge.

Because they will not see a player of his brilliance in the famous blue shirt for a very long time.

The Belgian playmaker destroyed sorry West Ham with a mesmerising show of quick feet and astonishing technique.

His two goals lifted Maurizio Sarri’s team up to third place in the Premier League and back on course for Champions League qualification.

Yet even a return to Europe’s top competition is unlikely to persuade him to stay in London now that he has Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane leading his fan club.

Bewildered Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini would willingly drive Hazard all the way to the Bernabeu after watching his team taken apart by the 28-year-old playmaker.

There were times when the ball appeared to be tied to his left boot by a piece of string as he drove his opponents to distraction.

There are now a maximum of four games left at Stamford Bridge before Hazard sits down to weigh up next move.

Chelsea fans should be, steal or borrow to get a ticket for the Belgian’s farewell tour.
