Chelsea Eden Hazard

Chelsea fans criticise Slavia Prague over treatment of Eden Hazard

Hazard targeted by Slavia Prague

Chelsea fans are not too happy with the treatment of Eden Hazard and want him substituted after the player was seemingly targeted by Slavia Prague.

Chelsea hosted a Slavia side who needed a big performance at Stamford Bridge to have any hope of progressing in the Europa League.

After the Blues secured a 1-0 win in Prague, Slavia needed to get on the front foot but it was Chelsea who struck first.

Chelsea turn on the style at the Bridge

Pedro scored the first goal of the game after just five minutes.

The Spaniard almost got a second five minutes later when he managed to strike the post from just a couple of yards out.

Thankfully for Pedro, his effort came off the post and deflected in off Slavia defender Simon Deli to give Chelsea a 2-0 lead and a three-goal cushion.

Just when you thought Chelsea would look to shut up shop, they added a third goal through Olivier Giroud.

That goal took the Frenchman top of the Europa League goalscoring charts with 10 goals.

Slavia then got one goal back through Tomáš Souček to raise a few concerns among the Stamford Bridge faithful.

However, those fears were quickly put at ease as Pedro got his second of the evening.

Despite the five goals in the first half, Eden Hazard was actually one of the biggest talking points and not necessarily for his performances.

Social media reacts to Hazard’s rough treatment

That’s because the Chelsea man was targetted by the Slavia Prague players from the off.

Slavia’s plan looked to be hitting Hazard hard in every tackle to put him off his game.

Clearly, it didn’t work, with Hazard playing a pivotal part in several goals.

Though, it did cause some serious worries for Chelsea fans and officials that Hazard would not finish the game without injury.
