The Belgium international gave the visitors the lead early in the second half at the KC Stadium before Fernando Torres wrapped up a 2-0 win with his sixth goal of the season.
Now we can recover for two days and we can watch Arsenal and Man City
The win moved Jose Mourinho’s men above Manchester City and Arsenal at the top of the English top flight ahead of the Gunners’ trip to Aston Villa on Monday night.
And Hazard insists that the Blues can now relax and watch their title rivals try to move back above them in the table.
“The first half was very difficult,” said Hazard. “We know playing away to Hull is always difficult but in the second half we worked hard and we scored two goals for the three points.
“The manager said at half-time – no stress, continue to try to be the best – then the first goal was good and helped the team to be on top.
“Now we can recover for two days and we can watch Arsenal and Man City. We are on the top of the league and we are happy.”
