Chelsea have taken the lead over Brighton at the Amex through Pedro, but it was all about the assist from Eden Hazard.
The Belgian has been fielded through the middle by Maurizio Sarri for the second game in the row. He justified the Italian’s decision against Manchester City by providing the assists for both goals, and he’s just recorded his 9th of the season here.
Hazard made space for himself in the opposition penalty area with some typically world-class dribbling, before squaring the ball to Pedro, who simply couldn’t miss.
