Chelsea’s stars are downhearted after the 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday according to Eden Hazard.
The Belgium international scored the Blues’ equalizer a few minutes from the closure of the game but despite the one point gained, he reveals his playing colleagues are ‘sad’. The expectations were that Chelsea would overcome Nuno Espirito’s side and mount pressure on the other top-four hopefuls.
But the late surge to make amends was not enough, as Hazard’s shot from outside the box flew past Rui Patricio with little chance and time left afterwards to steal a win. Arsenal beat Manchester United to go fourth in the standings while Tottenham Hotspur lost to Southampton at Saint Mary’s, so Chelsea lost the opportunity to close the gap on the third position.
Hazard reveals the Chelsea players are ‘sad’ although the ‘spirit is good’ in the dressing room with only eight games remaining to the end of the season.
“Of course we are disappointed. We didn’t create a lot of chances and we moved the ball too slowly. This type of game, maybe three months ago we’d have lost.
The spirit is good. When we lost 6-0 to Manchester City, we said there were three or four months left and we have to try and finish in the top four. ‘The players are a bit sad, because we probably could do better”
