Eden Hazard, the best Chelsea player after losing his team to Manchester City, said he could play for three hours and still would not get the ball.
Hazard was also indirectly called by his own coach Antonio Conte.
“We could play for another three hours, but I would still not get a single ball, it’s hard to play when you are completely cut off and touch the ball three times in the match.” We did not use the quality we have at all. I do not think I’m in the best position in these situations. When you get out of the field with the feeling that you’ve run a lot, but you have not played soccer, it’s very bad, “Hazard concluded, according to The Guardian.
Recall that the goalkeeper of the only goal in the derby of the 29th round of the Premiership was Bernardo Silva in 46 minutes.
The hosts had a big dominance in the possession of the ball (71:29), much more bumps and attempts towards the goal goal, while Chelsea halted only three shots, none of which went to the goal of Brazilian Ederson.
