Eden Hazard congratulated N'Golo Kante and his fellow Chelsea goal-scorers on their strikes in a 4-0 win over Man United
Eden Hazard congratulated N’Golo Kante on his Chelsea goal in Sunday’s 4-0 victory over Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.
Antonio Conte’s improving Chelsea side made the breakthrough inside 30 seconds after Spain international Pedro Rodriguez broke past the United defence and passed his finish into David De Gea’s net.
Chelsea underlined their first-half dominance with a second goal in the 20th minute after stand-in Blues captain Gary Cahill made amends for his recent mistakes with a powerful finish.
Hazard continued his excellent goal-scoring in the second half as the Belgium international beat De Gea at the United number one’s near post to take his tally to four goals so far this season.
Summer signing Kante polished off the win with the home side’s fourth goal to hoist Conte’s side up to fourth place in the Premier League table.
And Hazard posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption:
“A great win, but a long way to go! Well done my friends @nglkante @garyjcahill @_pedro17_ #cfc #chelseafc #premierleague”
Kante moved to Chelsea in a £32m deal from Premier League title winners Leicester City in the summer transfer window.
The Blues make the trip to Southampton on Sunday.
