An Eden Hazard wonder strike

Jonathan Walters had a rough day. Two own goals and a missed penalty late capped one of the greatest performances in football history. Walters joins Gary Breen, Jamie Carragher and Michael Proctor as the only EPL players to score two own goals in one game.  Chelsea move to third in the table after a 4-0 win at Britannia, ending Stoke’s 17-game home unbeaten streak. Eden Hazard scored one of his patented garbage time wonder strikes. In the end they all count the same (goal differential is always big) but it is a little curious. Give us a 90th minute equalizer, Eden. We know you’re good for it.

Update: A different angle indicates there was a deflection. The goal has been downgraded from wonder strike to nice hit.

  1. Pretty sure it came off the defenders head.

  2. nothing special about that and it does look like it did hit off the defenders head, ronaldos strike vs celta de vigo was way more wondrous than that!…eden hazard is a stud though

    • Looks like you guys are right (saw a different angle finally). The goal has been downgraded accordingly.
