  1. Eden Hazard

    I don't think he's been that poor. Only game he was poor was the Leicester game. Other games he always offered something to the team. He created opening, chances. I do think he's been left a lot more isolated this season then the seasons before. The shift from a 3-4-3 to a 3-5-2 while at first it seemed like it worked, the Atletico games come to mind, but we soon saw teams adapting to it and realizing that it made our attack extremely narrow and all the focus was on Hazard and Morata. So teams just defended extremely narrow and pretty much crowded Hazard anytime he tried to get on the ball. Also it would help if he wasn't being forced to play as the striker. LThe 0-3 against Bournemouth was the 7th time he was playing that position. It just isn't his position, it leaves him too isolated, difficult too reach and we simply need him to move the ball forward from midfield into the opponents final third. You want Hazard to get on the ball as much as possible but these last months we've been doing the opposite.

    He had a big part to play but calling him the biggest reason is quite an exaggeration imo.

    In both our title winning seasons Costa went missing in the second part of the season.

    I think it would be an improvement IF Barkley is able to get back to the level he was before his injury. It could work.

    But that's the thing though neither Fabregas, Bakayoko or Drinkwater have been particularly effective in the final third. Bakayoko has 2 goals, Drinkwater and Fabregas each have 1. The extra man offers them more freedom but they haven't made use of it at all. Against teams that sit deep they've struggled to make an impact while against top teams it seems like they've been told to pick their moments and be very cautious. Fabregas is the only player that has the quality but he simply lacks the legs to effectively play the position for me. Drinkwater and Bakayoko have the legs but lack the quality.

    While i understand the reasoning you're using i think it's important to keep in mind that due to the switch from a front 3 to a front 2 the opposition has 1 less player to worry about and Hazard has 1 less player for support when going forward. In the 3-5-2 Hazard and Morata only really have eachother for support.

    Hazard has always been more of a creator then a finisher. 6 goals in 1195 minutes this season. Last season he had 16 in 2985 minutes. Slightly behind but not by much. Morata imo is getting too much stick. He has 10 goals halfway through the season. Costa had 20 at the end of last season. Morata is right on course to equal Costa's tally. Our lack of goals has more to do with the switch from a front 3 to a front 2 in favour of an extra midfielder and more defensive solidity.

    What an utter load of crap. He's one of the most elite dribblers in the world. Last season he had an 80 % succesfull take on rate. And like Scott said when you take into account that he's mostly played as a winger/attacking mid not a striker and the pragmatic way we play, his goalscoring record is good.

    Since his debut Hazard has been fouled 476 times in 184 games. Most fouled player in the PL. You know how many the second most has ? 274.
  11. Spot on Dave. A recent article had a couple of parts about this. "Do I get a lot of bruises? Yes. Sometimes I’m feeling a lot. I get a lot of fouls, a lot on my ankle. While Hazard is reluctant to moan about the behaviour of opponents, Standard Sportunderstands he is getting worried about how he is being singled out on the pitch. It is understood the Belgium international, who has been the most fouled player in the Premier League since 2014, returned to London with his legs covered in bruises.

    1 Euhm... about a week ago where he scored the winning goal against Bournemouth and created 7 chances (the most chances a player has created this season in the PL btw) 2 nope

    It's not about shifting blame. It's just that when you start comparing our squad to other top teams you notice that those teams have several game changers. Here we have 1, Hazard. Also if you look at City, Madrid, PSG, they all have several players that handle the build up and creative side of things. Here we only have Fabregas, Hazard. Also when you look at the top teams there's a genuine abillity across the team to hold the ball and pass it around. Neymar, Ronaldo, Messi all three of them could stand around doing absolutely nothing and their teams would still be pinging the ball around effortlessly It's actually pretty weird why "scottish_mike" is complaining about Hazard not tearing the Roma defence when we were struggling to string along 3 passes. Instead of wondering why Hazard doesn't save our ass on a consistent base we should be wondering why we need Hazard to save us all the f**king time.

    Messi fair enough although as insanely good as he is he also has poor games. Ronaldo is well past his best and nowadays is just a goal poacher relying on the top quality players he's surrounded with at Madrid to get him chances. Bale and consistency . Really ? He's been injured half the time and he's been poor for the majority of the last 2 seasons and look this season injured again. Neymar is a massively wasteful player. The amount of times he loses the ball is pretty crazy. He needs several good opportunities. Eden unfortunately doesn't have that luxury here.
