Hazard strike enough for Chelsea

EPL: Chelsea extend lead, Hull, Watford draw as Everton continue unbeaten

A second-half goal by Eden Hazard was enough to secure all three points for Premier League champions, Chelsea at Bournemouth on Saturday.

The Belgian forward hit a firm shot past goalkeeper Asmir Begovic in the 51st minute after defender Simon Francis failed to cut out a ball over the top.

Bournemouth had a poor outing, as they failed to manage a shot on target until Steve Cook’s effort in stoppage time.

With ten games already played this season, they remain in the relegation zone, one spot from the bottom of the league table.

But the win helped Chelsea re-establish their stay on the 4th spot, sitting above Arsenal on goal difference.

The Blues will be playing next in the UEFA Champions League away to AS Roma on Wednesday.
