Video: Hazard and Di Maria swap shirts

Chelsea fans react on Twitter

Here's how Chelsea fans have reacted on Twitter...

Eden Hazard flirted with PSG before first leg

No doubt Chelsea fans were particularly perturbed that it was Hazard swapping shirts with one of the PSG players at the break.

Prior to the first leg, the Belgium international - who has struggled for form this season - admitted he would find it difficult to turn down the French champions.


"It is difficult to say no to PSG, or to any of the teams capable of winning the Champions League,” Hazard was quoted as telling Le Parisien by Sky Sports.

"PSG are now in that category. And for me, winning the Champions League is my main aim."

Hazard likely to leave Chelsea

The current PFA Player of the Year was expected to cement his status as one of the top three players in world football this season, but it hasn’t worked out that way at all.

The 25-year-old, for some inexplicable reason, has flattered to deceive.

Last season Hazard scored 19 goals in 52 appearances; in 34 matches this term, he’s scored twice.

Chelsea fans have lost patience with the 25-year-old whose head already appears to be elsewhere.
