HULL, England (AP) -- Eden Hazard helped put Jose Mourinho's Chelsea provisionally on top of the Premier League by scoring in a 2-0 victory at Hull on Saturday.

Hazard underlined his increasing value to the Blues with a skilful 57th-minute effort that broke down Hull's otherwise impressive resistance before Fernando Torres made the victory safe three minutes from time.

Hazard, who cut into the box before finishing emphatically into the bottom corner, is Chelsea's top scorer with nine league goals.

Chelsea leads Arsenal by one point and Manchester City by two. Both those clubs have a game in hand on Chelsea.

Torres scored on his 200th Premier League appearance while Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech set a club record of 209 clean sheets.
