Eden Hazard has admitted that his superb solo goal against Arsenal last season was one of his favourite strikes as Chelsea gained “revenge” over the Gunners.

Hazard netted a brilliant goal at Stamford Bridge with a mazy run and strong finish to help put the game to bed for the Blues.

The 3-1 win for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last season came after Arsenal were 3-0 winners over the Blues at The Emirates at the start of the 2016-17 campaign.

And Hazard admits that his strike against Arsene Wenger’s men was one of the favourites of his career.

Hazard told Nike in an interview at Cobham: “[It is] one of my favourite goals.

“It was a massive game because we lost the first [fixture] 3-0 in Arsenal so we needed revenge. We did well and won 3-1.

“I tried to bring the ball forward. I dribbled some players and then I just tried to finish.

“I was a bit lucky in the end with the finish, but the most important thing is that the ball went in.”

Hazard will be hoping to make his first appearance of the season for Chelsea when the Blues take on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The 26-year-old has been struggling with a serious ankle injury but returned to action for Belgium during the international break.
