Chelsea’s 2-2 draw against Arsenal,Eden Hazard blames Alvaro Morata
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.
