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.”
