‘It just shows how thin our squad is’ – Chelsea fans react as Blues receive some bad news ahead of next season

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling very disappointed at the moment…

After a stellar season, it seemed like it was impossible to bring the mood of the fans in the pub down. Indeed, many of them have not stopped celebrating since their side lifted the Premier League trophy last month.

However, just as quickly as they were taken to cloud-9, they have been brought right back down to earth with a crash. The reason for this? Well, it concerns the fitness of Eden Hazard.

Though the domestic season has ended, international football is still ongoing, and unfortunately for the Blues – it seems as though Hazard has picked up a very serious injury indeed. According to Bleacher Report, Hazard has suffered an ankle injury – and it could leave him sidelined for up to 3 months.

Of course, it is a bonus that Chelsea won’t be playing competitive football for a couple of months, but that has done very little to calm the fears of the Chelsea fans in the pub. Indeed, a 3-month layoff could see him miss the start of the 2017/18 campaign – leaving the Chelsea supporters devastated.

Unsurprisingly, the Chelsea fans on Reddit have had a very similar reaction – with many claiming that the anxiety caused by the injury proves that Conte needs to invest this summer.
