Last month, there were reports suggesting Antonio Conte was on the verge of getting the sack from Chelsea after losses to Liverpool and Arsenal left them off the pace at the top of the league.
This evening, the Blues sit top of the table after winning all five of their matches since - without conceding.
Against Everton, they put on a masterclass as they thrashed the Toffees 5-0 to move ahead of Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City to the summit of the league.
First-half goals from Eden Hazard, Marcos Alonso and Diego Costa effectively sealed the three points before the half-time whistle sounded.
But the moment of the match occurred after the break.
Hazard, who is back to his very best, was unsurprisingly involved.
The Belgian played a ball to Pedro who produced a lovely back-heel back to the midfielder. Hazard ran at the Everton defence, switched the ball onto his left foot before shooting early to catch Marteen Stekelenburg off guard.
It was a simply brilliant team goal with Hazard finishing it off with a delightful finish. Take a look below:
That wasn’t the end of the goals, though, as Hazard was involved once again when he saw his shot saved before Pedro applied the finish.
There is no doubt that Conte’s side are well and truly in this title race with their defence looking impregnable and their attack looking irresistible. With fixtures against Tottenham and Manchester City coming up, it will certainly be interesting if Conte’s side can continue this incredible form.
