Hazard’s Hat-Trick Takes Chelsea to the Top of the EPL.

Eden Hazard scored a hat-trick to send Chelsea to the top of the Premier League with victory against Newcastle.

Hazard, magnificent in Monday’s 1-0 win at Manchester City, was in inspired form throughout and drove in the opener from Branislav Ivanovic’s pass.

Newcastle’s Moussa Sissoko was denied one-on-one by Petr Cech, before Hazard finished off a fine sweeping move.

Hazard got his third in the second half, scoring from the penalty spot after Samuel Eto’o was fouled.
