Hazard, Kanté deliver brief, brutal assessments of Chelsea's performance against Arsenal

There's been a fair bit of radio silence from SW6 after Saturday's highly disappointing 3-0 loss to Arsenal.  Other than Branislav Ivanovic's rallying cry, I haven't seen any other interviews with the players, at least not in English.

Here's French outlet SFR Sport with a couple brief soundbites.  Unfortunately, I don't know any French, so all we have the translated quotes in the tweets.  But I'm guessing those contain the gist of the players' assessments of the match.  And it's, as we'd expect, not pretty.

"No excuses," says Hazard.  They "ate us".  And then spit us out and rubbed us back into the dirt with their boots.

"Arsenal rolled over us," says the highly disappointing N'Golo Kanté, who's followed up his subpar showing against Liverpool with an ever worse shift against Arsenal.

Yes, yes it was.  Far too easy.

Must do better, to state the obvious.
