Chelsea legend Glenn Hoddle has berated Blues manager Maurizio Sarri for his treatment of Eden Hazard in recent matches.
In his recent interview as monitored by popular media platform Goal, the former Chelsea player was at loss to why Sarri elected to play Hazard as a central striker in recent games.
Glenn Hoddle was reacting to his decision to start Eden Hazard as the main striker in the last league game, a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Premier League leaders Liverpool.
The gamble to play Hazard as the main striker backfired on Sarri.
His Chelsea side frustrated Liverpool for the first 45 minutes before the Blues defence conceded two goals in the early part of the second half.
Liverpool forwards Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah were on target for the Reds who secured the top spot on the Premier League table as a result of the win over Chelsea.
After the game, Sarri was heavily criticised for his failure to start Eden Hazard in his best position.
The Liverpool defeat has left Chelsea with a lot to do to in the race to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League.
The West Londoners are outside the top four on goal difference from fourth-placed Arsenal who have played a game more.
