It was a brilliant firework night for Chelsea.

The Blues were in fine form as they welcomed old rivals Manchester United to Stamford Bridge, defeating Jose Mourinho's side 1-0.

Antonio Conte's men bounced back in the best possible manner after their 3-0 humbling at the hands of Roma in the Champions League.

Alvaro Morata scored a spectacular header to seal the victory, with he and Eden Hazard terrorising United's makeshift back-three from minute one.

Eric Bailly, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling simply couldn't get near the dynamic duo, with Hazard being subjected to a huge number of fouls. In all honesty, a rotational foul system was clearly in place for the Belgian.

Nevertheless, the former Lille man had the last laugh at the final whistle as Chelsea closed the gap on Mourinho's men and he took to Instagram to point out his treatment at the hands of United players


Late on Sunday night, Hazard welcomed the beginning of the international break with a hilarious post, one which expertly sums up the game for the Belgian superstar.

That really is as cheeky as they come.

Hazard has often said before that he welcomes fouls from opponents as it proves his talent, but even he will have been more negative after his ordeal at the Bridge.

The likes of Ander Herrera and Jones just kept on kicking him, with both picking up a booking and very nearly being sent off.

After a slow start of the season due to a broken ankle picked up in the summer, the 2014/15 PFA Player of the Year looks near his best again.

And his highlight reel from the United game simply proves the form he is in.

Not bad that.

Hazard said after the game that Conte has to shout quite a bit at half-time to provoke a response from his players.


The Belgian told SFR Sport: "Just as it was last year after the two defeats to Arsenal and Liverpool. Everyone was a bit frustrated with results, and it was a bit the same this week.


"Sometimes you have to shout a bit to get back to getting good results. It bore fruit, so all the better.

"Whether it be the staff or the players we gave more than 100 percent, that's why we won. We could see that when we all play together, we create chances and we put them away. It's easier to win."
