Eden Hazard reveals why he dribbled so much against Liverpool




Chelsea were not the most dominant team this weekend in the Premier League, as their opponents, Liverpool rode on their recent attack minded philosophy to cause some fears in the technical minds at Chelsea prior to the game. Antonio Conte chose to drop Cesc Fabregas, maintaining afterwards that it was to rest the Spaniard rather than play defensively. The decision seemed almost a masterstroke, had Danny Drinkwater scored when he was put through on goal in the first half. After a 1-1 result at Anfield, several Chelsea players were rather satisfied after the dizzying flight their players had to endure in the Champions League in midweek.
Star man Eden Hazard started the game but could not shine the entire 90 minutes after he claimed he was isolated with Alvaro Morata up field. He however, was one of the best performers on the day with a record nine dribbles in the game, according to Whoscored. Hazard says he decided to dribble as much against a quality opposition because of how Conte lined up.
 It is a good point because when you are 1-0 down at Anfield, it is not easy to score. We should have scored more, but one point at Liverpool is satisfying. We changed the system, Danny Drinkwater was on the pitch and then we were a bit more defensive. The only player around me was Alvaro Morata, so if we wanted to win we had to do something together, just me and him. That’s why I tried to pass my opponent every time, and in the first half we did well. ‘In the second half it was more complicated but we scored so I am happy.
