Eden Hazard explains the reason why Chelsea is struggling to win games in their recent outing.Hazard admits changes to the winning team of the Premier League under manager Antonio Conte’s debut season has played a major role in Chelsea disastrous season.Conte championed Chelsea to the Premier League title after finishing the previous campaign poor under Jose Mourinho but the loss of striker Diego Costa, Midfielder Nemanja Matic and Nathan Ake affected the team’s performance in a negative way and their replacement with Premier League novices has not helped the team the arrival of Tiemoue Bakayoko, Alvaro Morata, Antonio Rudiger and Davide Zappacosta could help the team to restore its pride and has subjected Conte to intense pressure.
Their season is not lost, though, and can still be salvaged if everybody starts to pull in the same direction.The Blues remain inside the Premier League’s four, through to the fifth round of the FA Cup and the last 16 of the Champions League, giving them plenty to play for.Managing that schedule could, however, prove tricky, with Hazard conceding that Chelsea found the going easier last season as they were free of European commitments.He added: "I think the Premier League is difficult."It's hard to win every year. Last year we didn't have the Champions League. This year we have less time to be ready for the games. Every week there are three games."The Premier Champions will be up against West Bromwich Albion, and Hull City in the FA Cup and Barcelona in the Champions League and also face back to back game with Manchester United and the league pacesetter Manchester City.
