Chelsea talisman is anonymous playing in the middle and carries real threat only after moving wide left but his misses are made more glaring by Liverpool striker’s finishing
There is no doubt that Eden Hazard is one of the most exciting attacking players in the Premier League but this match made interesting viewing for all those Chelsea supporters pleased to see him used through the middle. His opportunities were extremely limited in that role whereas, when Chelsea went two goals down and sent on Gonzalo Higuaín as the main striker, Hazard was noticeably more effective when operating from wide left.
Twice around the hour mark Hazard had clear chances to rescue something from the game. He failed on both occasions, though at least he had the chances. While playing centrally he had been barely involved, yet when cutting in from the left he first managed to stay onside to find himself with only Alisson to beat, clipping the ball past the goalkeeper but seeing it rebound from a post, then within two minutes he met a cross from Willian in front of goal but could produce only a tamely scuffed shot.
