‘New Players To Blame For Current Poor Form’ – Hazard
Eden Hazard believes Chelsea’s current run of bad form is down to the new players, who are not well adapted to the league.
Chelsea won the league in Conte’s first season in charge, and they decided to switch up the squad over the break.
Ake, Costa and Matic left the club, with Bakayoko, Rudiger, Zappacosta and Morata joining the squad.
Too much tweaking has been blamed for the reversal in fortune, with Belgian forward Hazard telling ESPN FC on the evolution at Stamford Bridge: “We changed a couple of things, we lost players, we brought some new ones and every year is different.
“That’s why we love football – if there is only one team that wins it would be boring. That’s why football is special. You never know what’s going to happen, especially in England.”
