WATCH HIGHLIGHTS: Chelsea 3-1 Arsenal

Eden Hazard`s exquisite strike inspired Premier League leaders Chelsea to a 3-1 victory over Arsenal that shattered their rivals` title challenge, while spluttering Liverpool hit a new low in a 2-0 defeat at Hull on Saturday. Belgian winger Hazard left a trail of defenders in his wake to double Chelsea`s lead in the 53rd minute at Stamford Bridge.

Marcos Alonso had opened the scoring in the 13th minute with a contentious effort as the Chelsea defender clattered into Arsenal`s Hector Bellerin before heading home. Cesc Fabregas rubbed salt into Arsenal`s wounds in the 85th minute when the former Gunners midfielder chipped into the empty net after a woeful miskick from ex-Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech. Olivier Giroud`s stoppage-time goal was no consolation for third placed Arsenal, who trail Chelsea by 12 points with 14 games remaining. It was Chelsea`s 16th win in their last 18 league games, prompting Blues boss Antonio Conte to hail the triumph as a significant moment in the title race.
