The wait is finally over, Garth Crooks has chosen his team of the week. Hold onto your hats.

Crooks’ weekly column is renown for enraging football fans nationwide, but the Chelsea faithful ought to rest easy this week, with the BBC Sport pundit including THREE Blues in his team of the week.

The Premier League champions defeated AFC Bournemouth 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday evening. The scoreline did not flatter us, if not for the heroics of former Blue Asmir Begovic, it could have been three or four.

Match-winner Eden Hazard is back to full fitness and back amongst the goals, and his near-post strike has earned him a spot in Crooks’ team of the week. If you missed Hazard’s goal, you can see it by clicking here.

Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger were also chosen by Crooks after their rock-solid displays at the back. Gary Cahill’s going to have a tough time finding his way back into the side if they continue to perform like that.

Here’s his team of the week in full – do you agree?
