Eden Hazard, who was crucial as he scored the decisive penalty in Chelsea clash against Norwich City at Stamford Bridge, believes the Premier League champions did not perform as they usually did during the season so far.
“We had chances to kill off the game – Hazard told BBC sport – but the FA Cup is always not easy. The first game away was a bad game and also today it was not our best game of the season, but we gave everything at the end of the game when it was nine versus 11″.
“We showed great character after the draw at the end of time so we are happy, but also sad that we lost two players. But we are ready for the next step.”
“Today is a replay and with a replay you have to win the game, with extra-time and penalties it’s not easy, we got two red cards which is the bad thing for today but at least we go through and we are ready for Brighton at the weekend.
