Eden Hazard’s Chelsea contract expires in 2020 and there is a lot of talk over whether or not Hazard will remain at Stamford Bridge in the future. Regardless if he stays or goes, he has left Chelsea fans with memories of some outstanding goals.

What are Eden Hazard’s best Chelsea goals? Fantasysports.co.uk looks at three of the very best from the forward.
3. Eden Hazard – Stoke 2013
In January 2013, Chelsea visited Stoke City. Sitting fourth in the Premier League, Chelsea dismantled Stoke 4-0 as they rebounded from a loss to Queens Park Rangers in their prior match.
The best goal of the day came from the left boot of Hazard, who unleashed an ungodly 30-yard smash into the back of Stoke’s net.
2. Eden Hazard – Tottenham 2016
Chelsea struggled during the 2015-16 season. For all of the top teams, it was truly a topsy-turvy campaign. Hazard continued his strong play, however. The Blues met Tottenham in May stuck around mid-table. Spurs started the game well and were up 2-0 at halftime. Chelsea, managed by Guus Hiddink, battled back in the second half to level the score and finish with a point.
Hazard’s brilliant first-time looping shot gave the Blues the draw. It came out of nothing as Spurs midfielder Moussa Dembele looked to have edged Hazard away from goal. However, the Belgian found just enough space to score.
1. Eden Hazard – Arsenal 2017
Chelsea lifted the Premier League title in 2016-17. Behind Hazard’s 16 Premier League goals, the Blues were unstoppable. On February 4th, Hazard scored what many believe to be his best Chelsea goal.
Picking the ball up at midfield, Hazard shrugged off Arsenal tackler Francis Coquelin before making two Arsenal defenders look silly in the 18-yard box. The forward then coolly slotted the ball past Petr Cech and into Arsenal’s goal.
