However, they failed to convert the chances that came in their way. Eden Hazard and Marcos Alonso hit the bar and it was clearly not the day at the office for the Blues.Advertisement Maurizio Sarri again preferred to play Eden Hazard as the false nine.

Chelsea had the ball possession in their favour; but their build up process was too slow.Advertisement Today, Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea were nowhere near their gameplay against Manchester City few weeks ago. The lack of consistency of the players will surely haunt the manager. Chelsea are now 11 points behind the League leaders Liverpool. Arsenal are now at the same points with them. So, the pressure is certainly increasing for the Blues to finish at the top four positions in the Premier League this season.Eden Hazard was not at his best in this match.
