Rodney Marsh: Chelsea duo Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard have been useless
Former Man City star Rodney Marsh runs rule over 'useless' Chelsea duo Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas
Rodney Marsh says Chelsea stars Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard have been useless this season.
The Blues succumbed to their third Premier League defeat of the new campaign on Saturday after a 3-1 loss to Everton at Goodison Park.
While Hazard does have one assist to his name, the Belgium international is yet to score in the top-flight this term.
Fabregas, meanwhile, has failed to make an assist or score a goal in Chelsea’s opening five games, whilst the midfielder’s pass success rate has dropped to 82.6 per cent.
And former Manchester City forward Marsh didn’t hold back in his assessment of the Chelsea duo.
