Is Chelsea's Attack Better Without Hazard?

New, comments

I know Hazard only played 15 minutes, but it's clear the team performed much better after he came off so was it coincidence or more than that?

Questions

  1. Mikel is still starting -- what's your verdict: can he cut it? "I think he is the ideal player to bring balance in the team," said Hiddink.

    According to FourFourTwo: 7 ball recoveries, won 3 out of 4 tackles, completed 78 out of 82 passes

  2. Was Hazard missed -- the front four + Fabregas seemed to play really, really well together.

    FourFourTwo: Diego Costa set up Oscar for the opener, Oscar teed up Willian for the second, and Willian laid on the third for Costa in a triumph for tidiness, and by full-time Oscar, Willian and Cesc Fabregas had completed a combined 73 attacking third passes; more than the entire Crystal Palace team.

  3. Which of the goals was your favorite? So many to choose from!
