Chelsea fans react as Eden Hazard becomes club’s 10th all-time leading goalscorer

Many Chelsea fans believe star player Eden Hazard could climb even higher up the ladder after the Belgian became the club’s tenth all-time leading goal-scorer with a brilliant hat-trick against Cardiff City on Saturday.

Hazard went into the match on 91 goals and outside the top 10 list but by the time the full-time whistle went at Stamford Bridge the 27-year-old had overtaken Tommy Baldwin and Barry Bridges with a total of 94 goals for the Blues.

Cardiff opened the scoring with a goal by Sol Bamba but Chelsea struck back through Hazard’s three goals and a late strike by replacement Willian as Maurizio Sarri’s men maintained their unbeaten start to the season with their fifth consecutive win.

Chelsea fans congratulated Hazard on Twitter with some saying he could match the likes of Didier Drogba, Kerry Dixon, Bobby Tambling and Frank Lampard to become the club’s all-time leading goal-scorer. Others believe he will be a contender for the Golden Boot, having scored five goals so far this season.

Here are some the reactions by Chelsea fans.
