Four talking points from Chelsea’s 4-0 victory against the Baggies.
The Blues have climbed to second place (for now) in the Premier League following a commanding 4-0 triumph against West Brom. Indeed, the victory places great pressure on the Baggies’ boss, Tony Pulis. They’re currently positioned in 17th position, only a point above West Ham who occupy 18th place in the league.
Eden Hazard produced a masterful display to guide the Blues towards a convincing victory. The Belgian maestro scored twice and provided one assist as the Champions raced towards a 4-0 triumph.
One noticeable area of today’s performance was the understanding between Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata. The pair combined brilliantly for Eden Hazard’s first goal, and their relationship has been incredibly fruitful this season.
Here are the four major talking points from today’s victory.
- Eden Hazard was on fire
The Belgian international produced a phenomenal display against the Baggies, one that indicates that the 26-year-old has returned to the best of his abilities. He displayed great technique to round Ben Foster for his first goal of the afternoon and his second strike was illustrative of the excellent qualities that he exhibits.
- Morata’s fine form continues
The Spaniard was sensational once again for the Champions, having scored his eighth league goal of the season. Indeed, the 25-year-old has made a stunning impact during his time at Chelsea, which was reinforced today. Real Madrid’s former striker scored and provided one assist against the Baggies and has managed to score eight goals and register four assists in the league this season.
- Fabregas is the primary beneficiary from the 3-5-2
Due to Antonio Conte’s injury concerns at the start of the season, Fabregas was forced to play on a weekly basis, which undoubtedly led to fatigue. The international period gave the 30-year-old the opportunity to recuperate, and entwined with Conte’s latest tactical change; he’s beginning to demonstrate his best form. Fabregas assisted Hazard and Alonso’s goals today.
- Andreas Christensen is growing in stature
Our Danish defender has performed exceptionally well since returning from his loan in Germany, and he’s beginning to establish himself as a first-team starter. Once again, the 21-year-old showed supreme composure on the ball, and he dealt with everything that came his way.
