Relive Eden Hazard's hat trick against Newcastle

In case you haven't heard, Eden Hazard's somewhat decent at this whole football thing. Sometimes, he even scores goals. And sometimes, he puts the whole team on his back and scores three. On a side note, I'd guess he sprinkled some of his secret magic dust onto Samuel Eto'o's morning corn flakes on Saturday as well.

That second goal especially was something straight out of José Mourinho's school for counterattacking excellence. Had we worn white shirts, we could've easily been mistaken for his Real Madrid side at their best. David Luiz's outlet ball found Willian, who kept the move flowing in the right direction. With runners to either side of him, he took the simple option of Hazard to his left. Eden delayed for a second, allowing the third runner Eto'o to take up position in the penalty box. Cutting in and driving straight towards goal, Hazard's flicked a square ball to the center forward who returned the favor with his own scintillating piece of skill. The backheel found Hazard in stride, who calmly slotted past Tim Krul into the far corner. The whole thing took less than 15 seconds.

Hazard capped his night off with his trademark no-look penalty. Too cool.
