Hazard ends Chelsea goal drought after Terry penalty intervention
By Chelsea correspondent Tony Hughes
Eden Hazard ended his season-long goal drought – but only after John Terry intervened to make sure he took Chelsea’s second-half penalty.
The Blues thrashed MK Dons 5-1 on Sunday afternoon to stroll into the FA Cup fifth round draw with an authoritative display.
Oscar put Chelsea 3-1 up at half-time with a hat-trick and Hazard then won a penalty early in the second half after tangling with Darren Potter.
There was a debate among the Chelsea players over who should take the spot-kick before skipper Terry intervened to ensure that Hazard was given the chance to score his first goal of the season.
The Belgian, who had missed his two previous penalties, stepped up and dispatched the kick to get off the mark for the season with his first goal in 30 matches.

Substitute Bertrand Traore added a fifth soon afterwards to make sure Chelsea’s name was in the hat for the draw taking place on Sunday evening.
