Chelsea 3-0 Newcastle: Hazard hat-trick sends Mourinho's men top

Chelsea Stand

Chelsea beat Newcastle United 3-0 at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

Eden Hazard continued his fine recent form, scoring all three goals in Chelsea 3-0 victory against Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge.

The Belgian fired home the first after an assist from last week's goal hero Branislav Ivanovic.  He finished off an impressive team move seven minutes later, before netting from the spot to complete his hat-trick after Samuel Eto'o had been brought down in the box.

With Arsenal losing at Liverpool and Manchester City only drawing with Norwich City, the win sent Jose Mourinho's side to the top of the table.

So much for little horses needing milk!
