Fans hit out at Eden Hazard over poor display

Fans hit out at Eden Hazard over poor display as Real Madrid grabs narrow win at Espanyol

The Belgian forward dropped another underwhelming performance in the Sunday night encounter.

Eden Hazard has come under scrutiny once again for his poor showing for Real Madrid in Sunday's La Liga clash with Espanyol. The 28-year-old Belgian star was featured in the starting lineup but was unable to last the whole duration of proceedings as Los Blancos sealed a narrow 1-0 win over their Catalan opposition.

Following a tight first 45 minutes, Zinedine Zidane's men were finally able to break the deadlock after Casemiro benefited from Benzema's brilliance in stoppage time ahead of the break. The Brazilian was set up to score the game's decider through a cheeky back-heeled assist from his French teammate. The goal consolidated Real Madrid's status as league leaders with rivals Barcelona now haveing a two-point deficit to deal with in second place.

For Eden Hazard, it was yet another night to forget as the former Chelsea talisman dropped an underwhelming performance to add up to a frustrating season. The forward managed just one shot, created one chance, completed a total of 35 passes while failing to make a single cross or score. He was subsequently replaced with Vinicius Jr in the 63rd-minute.

Since joining the Merengues this summer, Hazard has had his career blighted by recurrent injuries. His fit days have seen him feature in 19 games across all competition. He has scored only one goal in career with the Bernabeu outfit. Below are some reactions from fans following the attacker's input:
