Eden Hazard’s threat was nullified against Manchester United during our 2-0 defeat at Old Trafford after Jose Mourinho assigned Herrera to man-mark Hazard.

This was the first-time the winger was being man-marked in his Chelsea career and he obviously didn’t know how to handle it.

Ex-Manchester United player-turned-pundit Gary Neville claimed Hazard’s performance against Manchester United lacked maturity.

“I’ve got loads of time for him, a great player,” Neville told Sky Sports.

“I always think that maybe he needs to go that step further. Is he a little bit timid to be what would be a real selfish and horrible best player in the world? A Cristiano or Messi type that really has that drive and determination.

“Against Manchester United I thought he accepted things too easily. He made it easy for Herrera far too often.

“He showed a lack of maturity and a little bit of naivety.

“He almost thought ‘this is really difficult, he’s man-marking me’ and accepted it. He didn’t go and do something different.

“Hazard fell short in his understanding of playing against the man-marker. He needed to play high and wide or high and through the middle – and next time he might.”

Do you think Neville’s comments on Hazard’s performance were harsh?

  1. He may be a little bit right about what he said about Hazard but When you are always kicked by someone and the team is not creative to help you, you can fall to this situation. Everyone was talking about step-over of Zouma, I really congratulate him very much. This is what Chelsea need right now. “Confidence” and “not accepting the situation”, “fight”. Chelsea started wrong I think. Chelsea psycologically was afraid of Manchester U. because of “the Kicks” in the FA cup match.
