Chelsea forward, Eden Hazard, has overtaken Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo’s Premier League goal record.
Hazard scored two brilliant goals on Monday to secure Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over West Ham.
Ronaldo, however, played fewer games than Hazard to achieve the feat.
While Ronaldo scored 84 goals in 196 games, Hazard played 240 games for Chelsea scoring 85 goals to beat the Portuguese’s record.
The Belgian’s first goal last night was his 84th in the Premier League which put him level with Ronaldo 84 goals during his time at Manchester United.
Hazard, however, overtook Ronaldo’s record and capped his fine performance with a late goal to secure Chelsea’s 2-0 win.
The victory over the Hammers also took Chelsea up to third in the Premier League, although Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United have all played one game less than the Blues.
