Eden Hazard says Chelsea should have beaten Arsenal in Wednesday’s thrilling Premier League clash but were let down by the profligate finishing of their striker, Alvaro Morata.
The £70 million summer signing from Real Madrid missed two one-on-ones though his teammates appeared to have bailed him out when Marcos Alonso netted late on to make it 2-1.
Incredibly, Arsenal responded through Hector Bellerin in stoppage time, yet Morata was presented with yet another chance in the dying seconds – his third one-on-one – but hit his shot tamely straight at Petr Cech.
Morata missed the target with two one-on-ones and hit the other straight at Cech.
In an entertaining joint interview with Bellerin, Hazard said in no uncertain terms that the visitors should have taken all three points had they been more clinical.
The Belgian told Sky Sports afterwards:-
Maybe we should score more goals, we missed a lot of chances.
