Chelsea needed Hazard to beat Arsenal – Nevin claims

by -

After Chelsea draw with Arsenal on Sunday, Pat Nevin says he believes that the result of the game could have been different if Hazard would have been included in the starting XI by Antonio Conte.

“At times like that” – Nevin wrote on Chelsea official website referring to the Premier League game vs Arsenal – “you need something different or something special and Eden Hazard’s cameo at the end showed us precisely what that was. For all that it has been a good run since the beginning of the season, it is times like these when you fully appreciate what Eden brings to the table. You can match up all over the pitch as much as you like but if someone dances past three players, your system and structure is smashed”.
