Eden Hazard and Ruben Loftus-Cheek scored brilliant goals against Brighton and Hove Albion in the side’s league win last night.
Chelsea made an emphatic comeback at Stamford Bridge as the side outclassed Brighton with a crucial 3-0 win.
Callum Hudson-Odoi was given his first-ever Premier League start for Chelsea, and the youngster didn’t disappoint the Stamford Bridge crowd.
Hudson-Odoi created the first goal with a brilliant assist for Olivier Giroud, while Eden Hazard sent the defender flying with a brilliant piece of dribbling for Chelsea’s second.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek added a third for the side with an amazing strike from outside the box, as the keeper could do little to save the goal.
After the game, Loftus-Cheek took a cheeky dig at Eden Hazard, and the Belgian attacker had a fiery reply.
Eden Hazard and Ruben Loftus-Cheek in cheeky banter:
Loftus-Cheek scored a beautiful goal from Eden Hazard’s assist to secure the three points for Chelsea in the game. He took to Twitter to celebrate the win, and taunted Hazard.
“Eden, I did it better,” the 23-year-old player wrote on his Twitter profile, referring to the goal he scored in the game.

Chelsea’s victory was crucial in their hopes for a top-four finish in the Premier League this season. With this victory, the Blues have now climbed above Manchester United, who faced a stunning 2-1 defeat against Wolves earlier this week.
The side will aim to continue on their newfound form as they visit West Ham United on the weekend. Arsenal, who are fourth, will take on Everton at the Goodison Park.
Chelsea fans would also be hoping for Maurizio Sarri to give Callum Hudson-Odoi more chances in the upcoming games, as the season proceeds towards its business end.
