Chelsea fans weren't happy with Eden Hazard after the Swansea game

Chelsea will be heading back to London with mixed emotions after their 2-2 draw with Swansea City.

The Blues dominated for much of the game but found themselves 2-1 down after a remarkable turnaround, but a Diego Costa masterclass ensured they salvaged a point.

The Spanish striker looks back to his best after a difficult campaign last season, although it's probably best not to speak too soon.

After all, that's exactly what Chelsea fans will have been saying about Eden Hazard prior to the Swansea game.

The former PFA Player of the Year started the season brilliantly, but he was basically anonymous on Sunday afternoon.

The Belgian looked a long way off the player that finished last season so strongly. His performance was more reminiscent of the shadow of his former self that struggled so badly in Jose Mourinho's final days at the club. 

In fact, his stumbling over the ball late on against the Swans was the least of his worries. In a game he was expected to boss, he just went missing.

Most people will have been baffled by how Swansea managed to turn the game around, but it didn't help that one of Chelsea's main attacking threats made no impact whatsoever.

Hazard disappointing  

Unsurprisingly, Chelsea fans had plenty to say about it on social media.

Hazard didn't step up when they needed him, so they were more than happy to let him know he'd let the side down badly.

Not only did he not offer an awful lot going forward, he consistently appeared to back out of tackles, so no wonder Chelsea supporters, who are normally his biggest advocates, were fuming with him.

Antonio Conte will be hoping this is nothing more than a blip on Hazard's road to recovery. Just when he was looking so good again, he won't be wanting too many more performances like this.

Why couldn't Chelsea pick up three points against Swansea? What was their biggest problem? Have your say in the comments.
