Eden Hazard produced a fine display at the Amex this afternoon as his brace helped the Blues on their way to a 4-0 win over Brighton.
However, Hazard’s gesture at the end of the game is what has everyone talking, as he gave a young Brighton fan his shirt from the game, no doubt making his day.
This young Brighton fan brought a sign to the Amex asking for the Belgian’s shirt…

…At the full-time whistle, Hazard obliged and gave the fan his shirt – a great gesture from a great player.
One lucky @OfficialBHAFC fan will be going home with today’s man of the match’s shirt.

FT: Brighton 0-4 Chelsea
The Blues sailed into an early lead after just seven minutes as goals from Hazard and Willian ended Chelsea’s three-match Premier League goal drought.
In the second-half, Hazard and Victor Moses further extended Chelsea’s lead, helping Anotino Conte’s side back into third.
Chelsea headed for the south coast with a number of notable absentees, including Thibaut Courtois, Pedro, Cesc Fabregas and Gary Cahill, but showed no signs of missing them this afternoon.
Hazard broke the deadlock after just four minutes, for his 100th career league goal, after he managed to convert Victor Moses’ low cross.
Just moments later, Willian doubled Chelsea’s lead with a goal of the season contender, as he sumptuously rounded off a well-worked move between Hazard and Michy Batshuayi.
Chelsea added a third just 13 minutes from time after Hazard was set free by a cutting pass from Willian and the Belgian cooly converted after going all the way.
The win was sealed late on by Moses as he took an excellent pass from Charly Musonda in his stride sliding the ball past Matty Ryan for four.

And a nice gesture from Eden Hazard: handing his shirt to a little boy with a banner begging for his shirt. #cfc
