EPL: Hazard surpasses Gianfranco Zola Chelsea's goal record with brace against Brighton

Connor Goldson may be allowed to leave Brighton this month

"I would like to think that anyone not in the starting XI wouldn't have been happy not to be in the XI, and anyone not in the squad wouldn't be happy". The Belgium global was a constant threat to the Brighton defence with his skilful runs and intelligent through-balls, before he got on the scoresheet once more to cap off a great individual display.

None came close to an interception, each Chelsea touch dropping them further off the pace, before Batshuayi eventually flicked Willian into space to rip a finish gloriously beyond the diving Mathew Ryan from the edge of the area.

ChelseaAntonio Conte hit out at the negative reporting on Chelsea's season after they hammered Brighton 4-0 on Saturday.

"Football is simple - keep the ball on the ground and try [to play] like we did [against Brighton]".

"The combination between Michy, Willian and me and the midfield was brilliant, we need more like this week after week", two-goal Hazard said after the win at the Amex Stadium.

"If they are not ready to play I can play striker, so I don't think we need [another one]". "He is a young striker and it is normal for him to struggle a bit in this league, but at the same time I think he is progressing very well".

He added: "Who is the best team this year?" Manchester City. The strikers, [Gabriel] Jesus and [Sergio] Aguero, are not big.

Roma's Edin Dzeko as well as unexpected targets Andy Carroll and Peter Crouch have been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.

"Yes, it sometimes happens".

His 89th-minute goal was his first since a strike against Arsenal in the Community Shield in August previous year.

"We've been working so hard in training, obviously on our finishing as well, and you could see that on the pitch - everybody did really well to put the ball in the net and we're very pleased".

The tricky Belgian would go on to add a second of the match and a 101st goal of his club career.

Chelsea fans were delighted last week after Hazard told a fan that he would "never leave Chelsea" during Thursday night's NBA London game between Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers.

The forward also missed pre-season and had a broken ankle that he recovered from over the summer.
