After scoring 101 goals for Chelsea, Eden Hazard says he wants to become a club legend like Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba and John Terry.
The 27-year old scored a brace on Wednesday to help Chelsea beat Watford 2-1.
He thus became only the 10th player to reach that landmark when he collected Mateo Kovacic’s pass, took the ball around goalkeeper Ben Foster and calmly finished in first-half injury time.
Roberto Pereyra leveled for Watford in two minutes, before Hazard grabbed his second of the match – his 101st Chelsea goal in 322 appearances – in the second half when he converted a penalty after Foster had bundled him over.
Hazard has been repeatedly linked with a move to Real Madrid but it yet to be known if a deal will be reached in the coming January transfer window.
“To score 101 goals with this amazing club is something I will never forget, but now the fans, staff and players want more,” said the Belgian, who helped Chelsea win the Premier League title in 2015 and 2017.
“I want to score more for this club and then try to be a legend like Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba and John Terry.”
The Blues back up to fourth after they had dropped below Arsenal following the Gunners’ 1-1 draw at Brighton earlier on Wednesday.
