Chelsea cruised to the top of the Premier League with an emphatic victory over Everton at Stamford Bridge thanks to two goals from Eden Hazard with Marcos Alonso, Diego Costa and Pedro also on target.

Hazard opened the scoring in the 18th minute, converting for the fourth successive league game for the first time in his career, before Marcos Alonso opened his Chelsea account with his maiden goal for the club just 70 seconds later.

Koeman sent Kevin Mirallas on for Bryan Oviedo in a bid to add stability through a more familiar formation, but the hosts continued to dominate and Diego Costa fired home three minutes before the interval.

Hazard struck a sensational second 11 minutes into the second half before Pedro added a goal to his two assists, rounding off a phenomenal display of attacking football that extends Chelsea's unbeaten run at home against Everton to 22 matches.
