Wednesday 9th of March was an important day for Chelsea. They played Parisian team, PSG in the sixteenth round of the Champions League. Paris Saint Germain went into the game winning on aggregate 2-1 from the first leg.
Chelsea fans were not only disappointed with the score, 4-2 on aggregate, but also with Hazard’s performance. The Belgian winger scored 19 goals last season and was on his way to win Player of the Year, but this season Hazard has only scored 2 goals. It is not just Hazard’s performance though; the team is out of form, sitting tenth in the table with 9 wins, 10 draws and 12 losses in the English Premier League.
This is not the season for Chelsea, with underdogs rising up the table like West Ham (5th) and Leicester City (1st). Chelsea fan and pupil Ryan (12) said “their strikers are getting through but they struggle to score”. He also mentioned that he thinks Chelsea should bring in a world class defender as a lot of their current defenders are injured. With the potential of young players like Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Kennedy, Matt Miazga and Kurt Zouma, Chelsea could have a great team in the future.
