Although Hazard’s goal was not enough to settle the tie as Fernando Llorente netted in the second half to make it 2-2 on aggregate and force penalties, it still counts in extending this remarkable personal record.
According to Opta Joe, the 28-year-old has now scored 46 home goals for the club in all competitions, with zero defeats.

Maurizio Sarri got some stick for using Hazard as a false nine recently, and it certainly seems a better idea using him out wide.
If the Italian tactician can get his star player scoring more, especially at home, it should seemingly lead to even more wins!
