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.
‘No, I think Chelsea should win this game because of the chances we missed.’
Morata’s poor performance – which also saw him fail to intercept the pass from which Jack Wilshere opened the scoring – follows hot on the heels of another profligate display against Stoke.
On that day, the Spaniard was presented with two clear-cut chances and fluffed both, with Willian aiming a cheeky dig at him afterwards, and Morata has now only scored in one of Chelsea’s last seven Premier League matches.
