Five-star Chelsea demolished Everton to move top of the Premier League with a devastating display.

Two-goal Eden Hazard produced a man of the match performance while goals from Marcos Alonso, Diego Costa and Pedro also left Ronald Koeman’s men in pieces.

Hazard opened the scoring on 19 minutes when he curled an effort around Toffees’ keeper Maarten Stekelenburg.

Alonso doubled the advantage just a minute later when he rifled Pedro’s cross under the body of Stekelenburg and into the net.

Chelsea were 3-0 up on 42 minutes when an unmarked Costa smashed the ball home from a corner. Hazard added his second 11 minutes after half time, sending a low shot into the bottom corner after Pedro had back-heeled into his path.

Pedro grabbed the goal his impressive performance deserved when he tucked the ball away after Hazard’s 65th-minute shot was saved.
