Chelsea's Eden Hazard wins April Goal of the Month for stunning solo strike vs West Ham
EDEN HAZARD may have won his final trophy as a Chelsea player after clinching April's Goal of the Month award for his stunning solo strike against West Ham.
The 28-year-old jinxed past a number of Hammers players before slotting a left-footed strike beyond Lukasz Fabianski into the bottom right corner.
Picking up the ball near the halfway line, Hazard slalomed past five men to score and leave the Chelsea fans in raptures.
Mohamed Salah's emphatic long-distance strike against the Blues was also in contention.
Hazard – who previously won the Goal of the Month for his solo effort against Arsenal in 2017 – claimed his finish against West Ham was "something special".
He said: "It’s just something special. I took the ball, when I could go forward I tried to go forward and in the box it’s hard for the defender to touch me, because maybe it’s a penalty.
"I was a bit lucky in the end when I shot but it was a good goal to be fair. I just wanted to shoot quick and when I saw the ball in the net I was just happy."
Hazard's future at Chelsea remains up in the air, with the ex-Lille magician having just one year left on his current deal at Stamford Bridge.
Real Madrid have been heavily linked with a move for the two-time Premier League winner, with Blues fans begging their main man to stay.
