West Ham were beaten 2-0 by Chelsea last night, with Hazard in scintillating form.
The Belgian international scored twice against the Hammers, but Hazard insists that he did not find it simple to play against Manuel Pellegrini’s men.
"The game was not easy. West Ham are a great team, they have the players and they created problems for us," Hazard said.
West Ham did actually cause Chelsea some scares during the second half of the match yesterday.
The Hammers were much improved after the break, and went very close to scoring at one point when Aaron Cresswell flashed a half-volley just wide.
It was Hazard who eventually secured the three points for Chelsea, when he finished neatly late on to add a second for Maurizio Sarri’s men.
Chelsea’s win has moved them into the top four again, while West Ham have sunk down to 11th place in the Premier League table.
