Bournemouth 0-1 Chelsea: Eden Hazard fires Antonio Conte's side to victory

Eden Hazard broke the deadlock with a shot that flew past former teammate Begovic at his near post early in the second half.

Eden Hazard celebrates goal.

Before the goal came, it was alarming in its simplicity. Alvaro Morata held the ball up superbly, as he did all evening along, ghosted away from a couple of defenders and pitched a pass into the left channel.

Eden Hazard gave chase, Simon Francis tumbled over in hot pursuit, and the Belgian fired the ball through Asmir Begovic and into the goal.

For Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, a surge of relief. This had been a reasonable enough away performance but for 51 minutes, a sense of frustration grew as Chelsea spurned a catalogue of openings.

Meanwhile the Blues hosts second place Manchester United at home next week Sunday in the Premier League action and would also be seeking for another win to help ease them from being far from the topper.
