Within 10 minutes into the game against Southampton, Eden Hazard put Chelsea up with a quick goal in just 6 minutes. Eden Hazard’s goal against Southampton was the third league game in a row we have scored the opener inside the first 10 minutes, and the 4th time Chelsea have netted within 10 minutes of the start of a game.
No team has matched Chelsea’s four goals netted in the first 10 minutes of Premier League matches this season. Manchester City with three are the closest.
Our early goals have certainly set the pace for the team, and that’s just what we need to keep doing — destabilise the opposition early and take all 3 points.
