Eden Hazard Matches a Personal Record Thanks to His Goal Against Bournemouth on Saturday

Cameron Ramsey

​Chelsea's menacingly dangerous attacking midfielder Eden Hazard recorded his 14th goal of the Premier League season on Saturday afternoon at the Vitality Stadium against AFC Bournemouth.

The healthy goal tally, according to a report provided by 101GreatGoals, matches the Belgian's previous goal scoring record for the Blues and has taken his overall scoring record for Chelsea to 55 goals in 167 games.


Astoundingly, only 11 of those 55 goals have come from the penalty spot.

Hazard notched the second of Chelsea's strikes against Eddie Howe's Cherries during Antonio Conte's triumphant squads 3-1 victory down on the south coast.

The illusive attacker was on the receiving end of a lofted through ball from N'Golo Kante, whose efforts left the Bournemouth defensive ranks utterly helpless. Hazard kept the ball under his tantalising spell, and slalomed effortlessly around Artur Boruc to slot the ball home into the vacant net.

Hazard has now managed to nab four goals in the last four matches, and is undoubtedly Chelsea's stand out performer this season, only to be rivalled by Kante and Diego Costa, naturally. 

Hazard has now scored the same amount of goals in the Premier League for Chelsea as Icelandic striker Eidur Gudjohnson, an impressive feat considering the diminutive attacker isn't necessarily in the squad to bag the goals primarily. 

Chelsea travel to Jose Mourinho's Manchester United to take on the Red Devils at Old Trafford on the 16th of April.


The hotly contested Premier League tie will be a vital occasion for both teams, as United will look to further their push for a Champions League spot, and the Blues will hope to record another victory and take another definitive step in their quest to win the title.

Hazard and co. will be motivated to show up against their old boss, and Eden will personally aim to net a few more goals before the season is done.
