Chelsea’s form of late has been called into question as the Blues have found it difficult to win games since 2018 began. Chelsea can only boast of two wins in the last ten games and after embarrassing defeats to Bournemouth and Watford, there have been calls for Chelsea manager Antonio Conte to be fired.

However, you’d recall that the Italian guided Chelsea to the Premier League title last season in a very dominant campaign for the Blues.

But then, with the team struggling this season, Eden Hazard who helped fire Chelsea to the title believes that the extra stress of European football is having adverse effects on Chelsea’s season.

“I think the Premier League is difficult. It is hard to win every year,” Hazard said to ESPN FC.

“Last year we didn’t have the Champions League.

“This year we have less time to be ready for the games. Every week there are three games.”

He then added that the unpredictable nature of the Premier League is what makes it unique.

“That’s why we love football – if there is only one team that wins it would be boring. That’s why football is special,” the Belgium Footballer of the Year added.

“You never know what’s going to happen, especially in England.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.

    Hazard response is very lazy that they have both the domestic league and champion league, the other clubs play the same games but is due to poor work rate and lack of ambition from the players, I have not seen commitment from the players but most of them are only interested in the take home pay check.

    The urge to strike is lacking!! Also any game is won from the first half….HAZARD SHOULD GO STRAIGHT IN IF GIVEN BALL AND SCORE AS ALWAYS…..also Fabregas should start all the games …he is a pass master!!

    Only who didn’t play football before can not understand… This is a game and is very real at the same time… What blues need now is to manage top four and try their best in all remaining competetion …. Prepare for nex season
