Thierry Henry reacts to Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Man United

The Arsenal legend heaps praise on 'amazing' Eden Hazard after Chelsea's 4-0 win over Manchester United

Thierry Henry lavished praise on “amazing” Eden Hazard after Chelsea’s 4-0 victory over Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

The west London side made the breakthrough inside the first minute after Spain international Pedro Rodriguez broke past the United defence and slotted his finish into the vacated net.

Stand-in Chelsea captain Gary Cahill doubled the home side’s lead in the 21st minute with a clinical finish inside David De Gea’s area after a Blues set-piece.

Belgium international Hazard continued his impressive start to the 2016-17 Premier League season after the winger scored his fourth goal of the campaign in the 61st minute.

And nine minutes later it was four goals for the hosts after summer signing N’Golo Kante waltzed past the United midfielder and defence to guide his finish past De Gea.

Belgium assistant manager Henry singled out Hazard’s performance for the hosts as the Arsenal legend delivered his verdict on Chelsea’s emphatic victory.

Henry told Sky Sports: “The balance of the team is right. Their desire was right. It does help, scoring early. But the way they managed the game… Eden was amazing, Matic had a good game.”
