Hazard really needs to start shooting it's frustrating to watch him at times.

Him and Costa are trying to walk the ball in the net instead of shooting

I remember how at the start of the season Hazard played in a very advanced position, some games his average position was the most advanced of all Chelsea players, and how he was testing GKs on the regular. Playing like a true forward. Didn't last long, did it? Hazard will always be an attacking midfielder. It's just his nature. He gets into certain positions and is presented with opportunities where a Neymar, Bale, Robben etc. would shoot without hesitation but Hazard will look for the pass. He's a feeder. And it's hard to imagine him changing at this point. Robben did change at a similar stage but he always had a selfish streak about him with his tunnel vision.

It wouldn't be smart to purchase a player offering similar qualities for the opposite flank. It's even worse in a 3-4-3 with seven defensive outfielders. That's why Pedro is so vital. You'll end up trying to pass the ball into the goal. And unless you're Spain 2008-2012 you'll never achieve sustained success. Or any succes even. Look at Wenger's post-Invincibles team.

For Hazard it's been like that for a while. Arsenal goal aside, he's becoming less and less direct with time. Take a player like Coutinho for example, it feels like he shoots twice as much as Hazard. Not to mention Ronaldo and Messi which he always says he aims to be like.

Defense has been horrid all day.

2 of our fowards are non-existent too. We are Kante+Fabregas carrying a team with Pedro as support.
