Eden Hazard quickly set the tone for a wild first half in a Premier League match between Chelsea and Hull City at KC Stadium on Sunday, as the Belgian winger scored on a fine solo effort to put the Blues up after 90 seconds.
Hazard took a drop-off pass from striker Diego Costa in the center of the pitch, sliced though the Hull midfield and let loose a stunning left-footed shot from around the top of the box. His curling strike bent toward the right corner of the goal, just outside the reach of goalkeeper Allan MacGregor. It was yet another impressive effort for the 24-year-old, who has now scored in four of his last five matches across all competitions.
The 2nd-minute strike was Hazard’s 11th league goal on the year and seemed to set to the pace for the Blues. Chelsea seemed on their way to three points and extend their lead atop Manchester City on the Premier League table. Seven mintues later, Costa would add a goal to put Chelsea up 2-0. It was a dream start to the match for Chelsea, but it would be short-lived.
Hull added two goals of their own to even the score in quick succession before the 3oth minute in a shocking turn of events. The half would end at 2-2, with both teams having amazing runs of play.
