Hazard sparkles as Chelsea sees off City

Hazard sparkles as Chelsea sees off City

Hazard has been in fine form for Antonio Conte's men this season and scored twice as Chelsea beat Manchester City 2-1 to further strengthen their grip on the Premier League title.

The Belgian worldwide made his first Premier League start since November in the 2-1 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, forming the defensive partnership with John Stones that Guardiola would ideally have liked to have seen all season.

"We are almost there but there is a long way to go", Hazard told BT Sport.

"We are in a position that we need to do our job, winning games and put pressure [on them]". We played against a really strong team.

That defeat brought the Hammers back into the relegation equation which got a bit more complicated after Hull City's 4-2 win over Middlesbrough. "Chelsea have ambitions to win the Champions League again and always look to play for the title", Courtois said.

The row reportedly began when Chelsea fitness coach Paolo Bertelli and Manchester City masseur Mark Sertori clashed after the game, having exchanged heated words throughout the 90 minutes. We know we still have a good advantage, but this is the Premier League and you don't want to be giving points away, especially at home.

Dj2 CEO Dmitri Johnson also states that the studio's goal is to remain true to the game's source material. We Happy Few has none of that going for it because it's not even a complete dang game yet.

Smith, Rahane propel Supergiant to victory
RPS secured the services of Ben Stokes, who became the highest paid foreign player in the history of the tournament. Smith and Rahane stitched 58 runs for the second wicket from seven overs to lay the foundation for the run chase.

A slight deflection off Willy Caballero gave Chelsea an early lead in the 10th minute of the first half. If we do this, we win the title. "For this reason, we have to win 18 points".

Delph made his first Premier League start of the season while captain Kompany his first since November and third of the campaign. "It wasn't easy", Conte said after the game. "We didn't deserve to lose the game against Crystal Palace".

John Stones spurned a stoppage-time opportunity to equalise for City, who must now recalibrate and focus on securing Champions League qualification. How long the players support him will no doubt determine how long he stays at Stamford Bridge. "When you play against City it is normal to suffer in some part of the game. We have to get more experience in this, for sure".

With Manchester United only drawing with Everton the night before, Arsenal moved up to fifth, four points behind City with a game in hand, after a 3-0 home victory over struggling West Ham United.

"The way we played, I'm so satisfied".
