Eden Hazard was in fine form against Brighton in the Premier League match on Saturday afternoon.

The Belgian scored a brace in a man of the match display against the Seagulls as Chelsea won the game 4-0.

Hazard’s brace plants him among Chelsea’s most creative players in the Premier League as he plants his name among the best to have played for the club.

His goals on Saturday took him one past Zola’s creative achievement for the Blues in the Premier League.

The brace means Hazard has now scored (65) or assisted (37) in 102 Premier League goals for Chelsea.

It takes him ahead of Zola (101) and means he sits third for Chelsea in the Premier League behind only Didier Drogba (159) and Frank Lampard (237).
