Eden Hazard Scores Hat-trick As Chelsea Tear Cardiff 4 – 1
Eden Hazard scored a hat-trick as Chelsea swept aside Cardiff City to maintain their 100% start to the Premier League season and go top of the table.
The newly promoted visitors took the lead when Joe Ralls’ free-kick was headed by captain Sean Morrison into the path of Sol Bamba, who volleyed home.
However, Hazard scored twice in seven minutes before half-time to send Chelsea in on top.
The Belgium international scored his third with a late penalty after Bamba brought down Willian, who added the Blues’ fourth from long range.
