Hazard eager to join list of Chelsea legends

27th December 2018, 09:45 by Tom Hill

Chelsea star Eden Hazard wants to become a "club legend" after he netted his 101st goal for the club on Wednesday evening.

Hazard scored his 100th and 101st goal for the Blues during the 2-1 win over Watford on Boxing Day night.

The 27-year-old became only the 10th player to reach that landmark when he scored from open play and then the penalty spot.

He reached the feat in 322 appearances although he continues to be linked with a move to Real Madrid.

Hazard has claimed it is his "dream" to play for the Spanish giants although he could now stay put after claiming he wants to surpass some of the club's greats.

"To score 101 goals with this amazing club is something I will never forget, but now the fans, staff and players want more," said Hazard.

"I want to score more for this club and then try to be a legend like Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba and John Terry."
