- Hazard bagged a late winner for Chelsea vs. Bournemouth
- WATCH: Hazard one away from centurion club after this goal
Eden Hazard has sent a message to the Chelsea supporters after bagging his 99th goal for the club against Bournemouth on Wednesday night.
We often rely on Hazard to swing the direction of a game in our favour. We did once again last night, with Bournemouth’s stubborn defence proving difficult for us to penetrate.
It took until the 84th minute and a heavily deflected effort from Hazard to finally beat Artur Boruc and find the back of the Bournemouth net.
Not only did Hazard send us through to the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup, but he also placed himself just one goal away from a major landmark in his Chelsea career.
Hazard hit the 99 mark, meaning that he is agonisingly close to being a Chelsea centurion. Just nine players have achieved that feat previously.
Following the game, he sent a message to Chelsea fans celebrating his (almost) achievement and noting that the hard work will continue from here.
That’s 99 goals for @HazardEden10!
