Eden Hazard is not a huge fan of individual accolades; he’s a team-first, pass-first kind of guy, often to his own detriment. But on his goal against Arsenal, he literally had no one to pass to, so he decided to simply take on half the visiting Gunners at Stamford Bridge and score what will sure be one of the favorites for goal of the season at the end of the year.
As it stands, it’s the Goal of the Month in the Premier League for February.

“It is always good to win trophies. It is not my most important target to win Goal of the Month, I want to win big trophies at the end of the season, but it is something I can say in few years.”
“It means a lot for the fans and for us, because it was a derby and we won the game. That is the most important thing in football, that you win the game if you score a fantastic goal, and I hope to score more goals like this.”
