Chelsea fans on Twitter slam Jenas after Hazard claim

Chelsea will have to score two goals without reply when they welcome Tottenham to Stamford Bridge in a couple of weeks in their Carabao Cup semi-final second-leg clash following a 1-0 first-leg loss to their London rivals last night.

A Harry Kane penalty, assisted by VAR in controversial style, was enough to give Mauricio Pochettino’s side the win in a game where the visitors largely dominated.

Eden Hazard, who was again deployed as false 9, in particular, impressed alongside 18-year-old Callum Hudson-Odoi who continues to be linked with a big-money move to Bayern Munich with Sky Sports reporting the German giants have met Chelsea’s £35m valuation.

And speaking after the game, ex-Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas had some interesting words to say about the brilliant Belgian.

“How good has Hazard been tonight? Demanding the ball, going by players,” Jenas said on BBC Radio 5 Live. “I never thought I would say it, but he’s too good for this Chelsea team.”

For a long time now, Hazard has clearly been playing levels above his team-mates. In that sense, Jenas probably has a point, though Chelsea supporters would be quick to argue the same thing about Harry Kane or Dele Alli at Tottenham.

You can have a look at their full thoughts on Jenas’ comments below…
