Still, it needed a stroke of fortune for Chelsea to come away with a third win, after previous victories against Huddersfield and Arsenal. Yedlin, who set up Joselu for the equalizer in the 83rd minute, stretched his leg out to block a shot from Marcos Alonso in the 88th and contrived to divert the ball into his own net.
Chelsea forward Eden Hazard says "it might be time to discover something different" after six "wonderful years" at Stamford Bridge. The 27-year-old, who scored as Belgium beat England 2-0 in Saturday's World Cup third-place play-off, has been linked with a move to Real Madrid. "You know my preferred destination," Hazard told reporters on Saturday. "I can decide if I want to stay or go but Chelsea will make the final decision - if they want to let me go." Chelsea sacked manager Antonio Conte on Friday and replaced him with fellow Italian Maurizio Sarri, within 24 hours.
Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has said he would "listen" if Real Madrid offered him a deal, but added that he could stay with the Blues "for many years". Hazard, who has broken his right ankle while training on international duty with Belgium, has been heavily linked with the Champions League winners. It could be Spain, it could be staying with Chelsea," he told the Het Laatste Nieuws newspaper. Real beat Juventus 4-1 to win Europe's top competition for a 12th time and claim a third Champions League crown in four years. Hazard added: "If I would ever join Real Madrid, I could end up on the bench too.
The official reptile of the University of Florida and the Sunshine State apparently has a golf card, too. Though not an uncommon sight at state courses and PGA Tour events there, the gator recorded recenty by Sarasota resident Charles Helms appears unusually large. Helms and his friend were golfing at the Buffalo Creek Golf Course in Palmetto when the estimated 14- to 15-foot long beast appeared, causing Helms to crack "I think that's two guys in an alligator suit." "I didn't know if we were being punked or something," Charles Helms told ABC Action News. "It was just laying down, resting, when it got up and started moving towards the big lake."
Eden Hazard says he will not move to Real Madrid in January, but agrees he might need to leave Chelsea to win the Ballon d'Or. The 27-year-old attacker said earlier this month that joining Real had been his "dream since I was a kid". Asked if he needed to play in Spain to win the game's top individual awards, Hazard smilingly replied "that's why I want to go, maybe". The Belgian denied he would move in the January transfer window, however. Hazard's contract at Stamford Bridge expires in June 2020 and reports in Spain claim Real Madrid are hopeful that Chelsea may sell at the end of this season for £70m rather than risk losing their star player a year later.
