Hazard hit a hat-trick for Maurizio Sarri’s men to add to Willian’s goal in the top flight clash at Stamford Bridge as the Blues continued their strong start to the new campaign.
Chelsea FC have won all five of their opening five Premier League games to leave them leading the way at the top of the table under the new Blues boss.
Hazard has been in particularly good form for Chelsea FC this season and he has struck five goals and made two assists in five games for the Blues so far this season.
And the Belgian playmaker seemed to be in high spirits as he posed for a picture with the match ball and with Rudiger after the game.
Rudiger posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Congrats on your hattrick @hazardeden_10 ⚽️⚽️⚽️ #Hustle #AlwaysBelieve @chelseafc @premierleague.”
Chelsea FC will return to Europa League action on Thursday night when they travel to PAOK.
The Blues are aiming to at least finish in the Premier League’s top four this season after they ended up fifth and won the FA Cup last term.
