WATCH: Bournemouth 0-1 Chelsea
Last Updated: 29/10/17 12:01am
Eden Hazard's first Premier League goal of the season eased Chelsea past Bournemouth 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium.
The Belgium playmaker's smart strike ensured Chelsea just about kept in touch with the league's pacesetters, though the champions still trail leaders Manchester City by nine points.
Hazard rescued his side after a host of missed chances and a disallowed goal for Alvaro Morata, with Cesar Azpilicueta ruled offside.
Asmir Begovic was caught out by Hazard's near-post drive, that punished Simon Francis' failed clearance without regard for Bournemouth's early-season peril at the wrong end of the table.
Bournemouth compounded their worst start to a Premier League season, and lost Jermain Defoe, Junior Stanislas and Benik Afobe to injury on a stark day for boss Eddie Howe.
