Former Blues manager Rafa Benitez suffered another unsuccessful trip to the Bridge last evening as he saw his Newcastle side surrender an early lead to ultimately lose the game 3-1.
Chelsea were behind for a mere 8 minutes and drew level when star man Eden Hazard clinically finished a half volley in the 21st minute.
The diminutive Belgian was in his element, weaving circles around a hapless Newcastle defence, creating more and more chances for the Blues.
Hazard capped off his stupendous performance with an audacious Panenka penalty to score Chelsea’s 3rd of the afternoon.
The brace took Hazard’s tally to 8 goals in the season across all competitions and his 5th goal in the league in just about a month.
A graphic on MOTD showing the Belgian’s unreal statistics since the beginning of November went viral with the Chelsea fans and had them raving about his performances online.
The 26-year-old has had more shots on target and more dribbles than any other player in the league and there definitely is more to come in the busy festive period.
