Chelsea star Eden Hazard has admitted that his goal against Tottenham last night was a little bit lucky.
Speaking to Chelsea TV, the Belgian international has insisted that yesterday was a good day for him as he bagged his side's opening goal of the game against the club's London rivals.
Jose Mourinho's side ultimately secured all three points as they won by three goals to nil on home soil. Hazard, who opened the scoring, was also joined on the scoresheet by veteran Didier Drogba and Frenchman Loic Remy.
There's no doubt about it, without Diego Costa in the side, Hazard stepped up and produced yet another fine display for the Stamford Bridge outfit.
At just 23-years-old, Hazard looks set to be one of the top players in world football over the coming years under the guidance of Mourinho. In truth, he's already one of the best players in the division, but will be looking to improve even further at the Bridge.

Blues fans will certainly be pleased that their star player looks set to sign a new long term deal with the club after Mourinho recently revealed that he expects the situation to be resolved in the near future.
Mourinho recently told reporters: “If they're happy to be here, like Oscar is showing with a new contract, like Eden is showing: he will sign a new contract sooner or later. They can basically be the Chelsea team for the next few years.”
Chelsea, meanwhile, continue to go from strength-to-strength in England's elite division. In fact, after last night's victory, the Blues have now secured 11 wins from their opening 14 Premier League fixtures.
The Blues are yet to lose this season and currently have a six point lead on last year's Premier League champions Manchester City. The Blues' next fixture, however, won't be an easy one as they travel to St James' Park to take on Alan Pardew's Newcastle side.
With Hazard and Co. firing, and Costa set to return, Chelsea will once again be hoping to pick up all three points.
