Chelsea headed into the clash desperate to return to winning ways, after being thoroughly-embarrassed en route to a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Bournemouth last time out. And, in the end, get back to winning ways was exactly what the hosts managed, in absolutely ruthless . The capital giants took the lead this afternoon with just 9 minutes on the clock, when Gonzalo Higuain opened his account for the club with a superb rifled finish from a tight angle.

And Hazard went on to make it 201 with his 2nd this afternoon. It was a much-needed victory for Maurizio Sarri whose methods have come under intense scrutiny of late with some suggesting post-Bournemouth that his could be on the line if results and performances didn’t improve quickly.

That Higuain played a big part in Chelsea getting back to winning (and scoring) ways in the Premier League will have only made the three points even sweeter for the Chelsea boss given it was he who pushed so hard for the Argentine’s signature.

At the start of the season, it looked as though Hazard might finally blossom into a player capable of scoring 20 plus goals in the Premier League as he racked up seven goals in his opening eight games. The goals soon dried up, though, with Hazard going seven without another until registering against Brighton in mid-December.

The arrival of Higuain has enabled him to move back to his best position on the flank and should help him rediscover his scoring touch. His first was an ice-cool penalty, dispatched after he himself had been brought down but the second highlighted how Higuain’s role can help him out, as he ghosted in off the left and into space before rounding Lossl and passing a finish into the net.
