Hazard appreciates Chelsea fans despite embarrassing defeat to Newcastle

Chelsea, who harboured an outside chance of a top-four spot heading into the final league fixture of the season, were overwhelmed at St James' Park, falling to a 3-0 defeat by 10th-placed Newcastle.

"It looked to me like everyone had one eye on the cup final, which is very risky".

"We wanted to end the season in the best possible way, but we can do better than this", he said.

A rapid second-half double from Ayoze Perez added to Dwight Gayle's 23rd-minute opener as Chelsea came up short on Tyneside.

"On many occasions throughout the season they have been described as a Championship side, which I personally consider to be derogatory. But I think when there is this situation the first person to answer for this must be the coach, because if in this game we lacked the spirit, the will, the desire, I'm the first person to answer for this".

Chelsea FC are a staggering 27 points adrift of Premier League champions Manchester City to highlight their regression this term.

And Di Matteo, who managed Chelsea to their historic Champions League win in 2012, believes his fellow Italian should be given more of a chance.

He added: "The other team was more determined than us and I think that today I wasn't able to convey that determination to my players, to play the last game against Newcastle". Don't forget two years ago they finished the season tenth, not in any finals and were eliminated in the last 16 [of the Champions League] against Paris Saint-Germain - it can happen. We have to sit down talk and see where we are.

The Newcastle boss said: 'I have said all along that I want to do things sooner rather than later. Alas no such red card was presented to him, and Chelsea fans will be steeling themselves for the logic-defying omission of Willian next Saturday in favour of the inadequate Bakayoko. The Belgium global then forced them to go and give their farewells to the supporters.

"For the next game, for sure we must change".
