On a monumental day which was built up for Arsene Wenger to remember for the rest of his managerial career, it quickly turned to disaster as Chelsea ruthlessly trounced their Premier League title rivals.
From the very first minute, Chelsea under Jose Mourinho displayed an aura of invincibility which has seemingly gotten the better of Arsene Wenger on numerous occasions.
Goals from Samuel Eto’o, Andre Schurrle, Eden Hazard, Oscar and January signing Mohamed Salah completed a 6-0 rout and strengthened the Blues grip at the top of the table.
It was the perfect team display all round from Chelsea, and one which will send out a warning to the Champions League’s quarter-finalists.
Under Jose Mourinho, a number of players have grown in confidence and become better players. For Eden Hazard, the Belgian international has improved in virtually every aspect of his game under the Portuguese boss.
Used in a similar way to Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid under Mourinho, Hazard has become a menace for defenders – seemingly creating chances and scoring goals at ease.
Despite his performance against Arsenal not being his vintage best, he still contributed with a number of mesmerising dribbles and Chelsea’s third goal from the spot.
Delighted with how the game went, Eden Hazard took to Instagram to post a collage of memorable photos – plus a message saying ‘amazing day’ - which his teammates and fans can look back on with joy.
