West Brom vs Chelsea Player Ratings: Eden Hazard the star in a 4-0 win

1

Chelsea star Eden Hazard was on song for the Blues as he helped his side win 4-0 against West Brom.

West Brom vs Chelsea
Both the teams started with their strongest sides as expected, with Antonio Conte preferring Andres Christensen over David Luiz once again.
It was the Dane’s second consecutive start of the season following an impressive performance against Manchester United.
West Brom started the game relatively well as they looked to make their home advantage count. The Baggies were close to an opener, but their early goal was disallowed for an offside much to the joy of Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

Morata-Hazard combo

The Blues then went onto score themselves as Alvaro Morata scored his eighth goal of the season.
Eden Hazard was the perpetrator as he turned around brilliantly and smashed in for a goal. Goalkeeper Ben Foster saved the Belgian’s effort, but Morata was at the right place to cash in on the opportunity.
The impressive duo worked together again to double the lead. A subtle touch from Morata set up an open goal for the Belgian who was unplayable for the majority of the game.
The goals continued to flood in for Chelsea as an unmarked Marcos Alonso pounced upon a cross from Cesc Fabregas to score the third.
It was Spaniard’s third league goal of the season – his previous two coming against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.
Chelsea star Eden Hazard shined once again sloted the ball past the goalkeeper comfortably for his second.
The Baggies looked devoid of confidence and discipline to contain Chelsea – anything unlike a Tony Pulis side. The Baggies boss is under serious pressure at the moment with the home fans calling for his departure.
Whether it would be his final game for West Brom is up for discussion but Antonio Conte will take a lot of positives as he looks to prepare his side for an important clash against Qarabaq in midweek.
