Video: Eden Hazard Scores Against Roma After Ruthless Chelsea Counter-Attack

Eden Hazard opened his account for Chelsea this season by scoring against Roma in the Champions League tonight after a ruthless counter-attack by the Blues.

The mercurial Belgian winger has endured a frustrating few months after breaking his ankle in the summer and missing the start of the Premier League season.

But the 26-year-old appeared to be back to his very best at Stamford Bridge tonight as he and his team-mates took advantage of some sloppy defending by their Serie A opponents.

Hazard won the ball back, gave it to Morata, and the Spaniard’s blocked shot fell perfectly to Hazard, who applied the finish:

That made the score 2-0 following David Luiz’s brilliant opener, and a win would leave Chelsea with nine points from nine in their Champions League group.

Do you fancy them to go all the way this season under Antonio Conte?
