Eden Hazard sends cheeky reply to Ruben Loftus-Cheek on identical goals in Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Brighton

Hazard Loftus-cheek

Eden Hazard as his fans are well aware is someone who likes to make a joke or two. And his Chelsea teammate Ruben Loftus-Cheek is the latest to fall victim of the Belgian superstar’s audaciousness!

Chelsea had thrashed Brighton and Hove Albion 3-0 on Wednesday to boost their chances of securing Champions League football next season with Hazard and Loftus-Cheek assisting each other for goals that were blasted into the top right corner of Mathew Ryan’s goal.

Olivier Giroud had opened the scoring for the Blues in the 38th minute before Hazard doubled the lead in the 60th minute. Chelsea youth product Loftus-Cheek’s goal followed three minutes later to put the result beyond doubt.

And after the game, the 23-year-old England international took to Twitter to post photographs of both Hazard’s and his goals with a comment that read: “Eden, I did it better”.

However, Hazard went one step further in his reply to banter commenting: “Cos you learnt from the best my friend”.

Surely, some friendly banter would do no harm as Chelsea fight for Top 4 in the Premier League and the Europa League title as the season reaches its dying embers.
