Eden Hazard: Goal vs Arsenal was one of my best

London: Eden Hazard reflected on a special goal after tearing through Arsenal to consolidate Chelsea's place at the top of the Premier League.
Hazard scored Chelsea's second in Saturday's 3-1 win, which saw Antonio Conte's side take a 12-point lead over the Gunners.
The Belgium playmaker ran half the length of the field and evaded any would-be tacklers before netting his 10th goal of the season.
“I score a few goals, a few beautiful goals,” Hazard told Chelsea TV. “But this one is special. It's against Arsenal and we won the game. This one is one of the best,” Hazard added.
Hazard said the Blues are focusing only on next Sunday's trip to Burnley. “The gap is more big now. We want to stay there, top of the league forever,” Hazard added. “We are full of confidence. We don't want to focus too far (ahead). We take game after game and be ready for the next one. “The next one is next week, so now we have a good week for training to get ready for the next game."
Marcos Alonso scored the opener and Cesc Fabregas a third, before Olivier Giroud's late consolation. And Hazard felt Chelsea could have won more convincingly, before sounding a warning for Burnley.
“We could score two or three more goals against Arsenal. We didn't. We want to keep it for the next game, I think,” Hazard said.
