Chelsea star Eden Hazard pinpoints actual purpose why his team-mates are ‘sad’

CHELSEA star Eden Hazard has opened up on a ‘sad’ dressing room after only managing a point against Wolves yesterday.

Chelsea’s hopes of finishing in the top four took a big blow when they scraped a draw with Wolves at Stamford Bridge yesterday afternoon.

Raul Jimenez scored the opener for the away side with their first chance of the game after hitting the Blues on the counter.

And Chelsea could not break down a stubborn defence until the dying minutes of the game.

After a short corner, the ball found itself at the feet of Hazard who danced past one defender before firing from range to find the bottom corner.

The point keeps the Blues in the reckoning for a spot in the top four but they missed a chance to leapfrog both Arsenal and Manchester United.

They still have a game in hand but Maurizio Sarri’s men must know that any more points dropped will seriously harm their chances.

And Chelsea’s hero Hazard has revealed why the result has left his team-mates sad.

“Of course we are disappointed,” he said.

“We didn’t create a lot of chances and we moved the ball too slowly.

“This type of game, maybe three months ago we’d have lost.

“The spirit is good. When we lost 6-0 to Manchester City, we said there were three or four months left and we have to try and finish in the top four.

“The players are a bit sad because we probably could do better.”

Meanwhile, Sarri was unhappy with the manner in which his opponent Nuno Espirito Santo set his team up.

He said: “For the first time we were playing against a team that didn’t want to play. They didn’t counter in the last 20 minutes so we had to try.

“Hazard is a great player, he can resolve the situation in every moment. During the other match he was like the other players, he needs more movement.”
