Eden Hazard, who struggled to shine for most of the match against Manchester City on Saturday in the FA Cup, had one glorious moment in the first half at the Etihad.
In the 22nd minute Hazard picked up possession tight on the left touchline, and the Belgium star had his hands full as both James Milner and Pablo Zabaleta immediately came to close him down.
With little space to work with Hazard produced a moment of magic as Chelsea’s candidate for player of the season took a couple of touches to advance down the line before he cut inside past Milner and immediately snaked past Zabaleta in the same move.
Then, as Vincent Kompany came in to close him down, Hazard found Ramires to complete his superb piece of skill.
