Hazard,Fabregas and Courtois A disappointment as Chelsea where Knocked out of the Champions League





Chelsea’s Champions League campaign came to an ultimately disappointing end at the Camp Nou on Wednesday night,Eden Hazard has always fail to impress on the big games and Barcelona Match was a clear indication to that Note. the Blues succumbing 3-0 to a clinical Barcelona side that will undoubtedly walk the Spanish league and probably compete for ultimate European glory as well. Chelsea’s aspirations for a massive shock were quickly doused by a Messi (messy) goal inside of three minutes, then a second inside of twenty, with Messi then adding a (yet another messy) third for good measure. As good as Barcelona were however, their best chances and all their goals were gifted by Chelsea errors, a fact that did not escape Thibaut Courtois in the post-match interview ... especially as at least one of those errors, the first one, the most crucial one, was his.

Fabregas

He was Arguably the Worst player on the Pitch,loosing two balls in the midfield area Which Lead to Second and Third Goals respectively

Courtois

Does not Deserve to wear a Chelsea shirt yester-night as he was found making series of Mistakes,which could have allowe Barca to score more than the score line.He was quoted after the math saying: “I don’t think we deserve to be out, but individual mistakes cost us in both legs. The first goal, I did not expect Lionel Messi to shoot from that angle and I was too late in closing my legs. It was a mistake on my part.
”There were missed passes from us and they scored from our mistakes. We defended and played well, hit the crossbar which was unlucky on our side but the individual mistakes cost us. We have to be honest about that.” Courtois, who had faced Messi for three seasons while on loan at Atlético Madrid, did the right thing in accepting responsibility for his mistake, though obviously that does not change the outcome nor does it lessen the sense of disappointment. “I’ve played against Messi a lot of times and I’ve already conceded goals through my legs with him. With a goalkeeper like me, two metres [tall], the weakest point maybe is between your legs because even if I’m standing in position there is a lot of space in between. It’s annoying but I don’t think I need to hide inside. I have to come out, be a man and show you made a mistake and move on. ”I also made some good saves as well, but it’s unlucky to go out to four goals where we made four mistakes. We have to move on, work hard and continue.”
As deflating as this result may be, Chelsea showed good fight — well, most of the players anyway — and that should bode well in the two main targets left for the season: to finish top four and qualify for next year’s Champions League, and maybe make a good fist of things in the FA Cup.
