The Belgian and Chelsea winger, Eden Hazard has blamed his side’s why his club did not beat Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium following their 2-2 draw on Wednesday Premier League clash.
The £70 million summer signing from Real Madrid,Alvaro Morata missed two one-on-ones though his teammates appeared to have bailed him out when Marcos Alonso netted late on to make it 2-1.
Hector Bellerin fired in a late equalizer as Arsenal fought back to draw 2-2 with Chelsea.
Morata was presented with yet another chance in the dying seconds – his third one-on-one – but hit his shot tamely straight at Petr Cech.
Hazard told Sky Sports afterwards: ‘Maybe we should score more goals, we missed a lot of chances.’
“I think Chelsea should win this game because of the chances we missed.”
‘Just before that Alvaro missed the chance, Petr did a good performance today. ‘I think Petr is a great goalkeeper, it’s always hard to score against him.’
Asked again if a draw was a fair result, Hazard added: ‘No, I think Chelsea should win this game because of the chances we missed.’
The 26yrs old praised Arsenal’s goalkeeper, Petr Cech for keeping the visitors at bay.
“Yeah, I think the last shot should be a goal. Just before that Alvaro missed the chance, Petr [Cech] did a good performance today.
“I think Petr is a great goalkeeper, it’s always hard to score against him,”
Morata’s poor performance – which also saw him fail to intercept the pass from which Jack Wilshere opened the scoring – follows hot on the heels of another profligate display against Stoke.
Both sides will face each other twice more in the coming weeks as they contest a two-legged Carabao Cup semi-final and Alvaro Morata will need to do far better in front of goal if the Blues are to progress to the final at Wembley Stadium.
