Eden Hazard continued his stunning form on Sunday with yet another goal for Chelsea in the team’s 3-0 win at Southampton.
Played through on goal after some brilliant play from Ross Barkley midway through the first half, there was never any doubt that the 27-year-old would fail to find the net.
Now the Premier League’s top goalscorer with seven goals so far this campaign, Hazard has scored eight goals in his last eight games in all competitions for the Blues.
Going on his stunning form upon his return from the World Cup, Jose Mourinho and Manchester United must be dreading the prospect of coming up against him after the international break.
Sealing a dramatic 3-2 win over Newcastle United at the weekend courtesy of Alexis Sanchez’s dramatic winner at the death, the Red Devils will need to back that result up to ease the pressure on Mourinho.
However, a goal for Hazard at Stamford Bridge next time out could see his former boss continue to dominate the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
The Belgian international has yet to be on the losing side with the Blues when he has netted during his six years at Stamford Bridge.
Scoring in 38 league games at home for Chelsea, the team have won an incredible 34 of those games when their star player has found the back of the net.
Given many Chelsea fans thought that Kenedy was going to end his former manager’s time at Old Trafford, it may well be Hazard who spells the end of Mourinho’s spell in Manchester.
United and the Portuguese boss will be dreading a Hazard goal when Premier League football returns after the international break.
