And that subbing was not without struggle. Hazard was just after the match attacked by a Swedish fan. The ‘pitch invader’ handle Hazard and stewards had to intervene to stop the two from separating. The Red Devil responded calmly and gave the veldbestormer for waaghalzerij. He pulled off his shirt and gave it along with the fan which was then removed by the security staff.
At the time of Hazards subbing, it was already 0-2 for Chelsea. Barkley and Giroud had Chelsea on a double lead. Deep in the slot was able to Malmö still mitigate through Christiansen.
