Another night of UEFA Champions League football, another English team out of the competition. That's three of the five knocked out in the round of 16 as Barcelona put Chelsea to the sword in a devastating 3-0 victory at Camp Nou; and Chelsea fans are not happy.
A rocket of an effort from Ousmane Dembele, sandwich by a Lionel Messi brace sent the Premier League champions flying out of Europe in Catalonia, as star player Eden Hazard went missing in the second leg.
Thibaut Courtois was simply not good enough against the clinical Barca, and found himself nutmegged twice in the 90 minutes. N'Golo Kante and Willian seem to be the only two players earning any praise from fans in the aftermath of the result, and many a finger has been pointed at the keeper:
Only good thing to come out of Chelsea Vs Barcelona is Real Madrid wont be confused about De Gea anymore 😂— Abhijeet Sirohi (@AbhijeetSirohi) March 14, 2018
This one may be a bit foul mouthed, but he has a point - although maybe the FIFA request is a bit drastic...
Let me say it: Eden Hazard is a fucking bum. Willian showed him how to perform on the big stage in these 2 Chelsea vs barca games. Willian looks more like the player that should be linked w Real n Barcelona + Fifa needs to drop his ratings by at least 5. #BarcaChelsea #BARCHE— TheNightMaker (@thenightmaker1) March 14, 2018
Another brilliant point about Eden Hazard right here; the best players have dragged their teams into wins: Roy Keane against Juventus '99, Steven Gerrard vs AC Milan '05, LeBron James vs the Warriors '17 - all greats, all getting their hands dirty. Has Hazard ever done that?
Unpopular opinion: Hazard is far from Messi or Ronaldo. Both of them carried their team when they were most needed, Hazard has been absolutely transparent. Don’t talk about the differences between the teams... Chelsea proved they could resist to Barça #BARCHE #Chelsea #barca— Rabré 🇩🇿🇵🇸 (@RabreHmi) March 14, 2018
All in all, it's pretty obvious how they feel: Courtois is a fraud, Hazard is overrated, Kante and William are still good. Regardless of what they think, Chelsea are out of Europe, and Barcelona are simply incredible.
