For the opening 25 minutes or so, it seemed Newcastle United had a handle on their clash with Chelsea, and they looked reasonably comfortable as the minutes ticked by.
Enter Eden Hazard, who had patiently waited for an opening before painting his name in 50-foot letters all over the fixture in devastating fashion.
Following on from his breathtaking performance against Manchester City on Monday, the little Belgian ran rings around the Magpies to score twice in seven first-half minutes.
And his perfect afternoon was complete when he tucked away his third from the penalty spot after the break.
In Hazard, Jose Mourinho has the ideal weapon through the middle, and on this showing, the 23-year-old could be amongst the end-of-season awards in a few months time.
