For many of the Chelsea players who only joined within the last 18 months, Tuesday evening’s clash with Paris Saint-Germain will arguably be the biggest so far in Chelsea colours.
Jose Mourinho’s men host the French champions trailing 3-1 from the first-leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash, and they face a tough ask if they want to overcome Laurent Blanc’s men and reach the semi-finals.
The Blues, however, do have one thing in their favour and it is their trio of Eden Hazard, Willian and Oscar – dubbed The Magic Trio on Twitter by Hazard – and as an attacking force, they rank amongst Europe’s best.
Belgian international Hazard has been phenomenal in the Premier League this season, netting 14 goals and assisting a further seven in 31 starts. Chelsea will be keen to get him on the ball as much as possible, as his whopping 122 successful dribbles this season have wreaked havoc amongst the very best defenders.
Hazard’s Brazilian teammates Oscar and Willian are also key cogs to this Chelsea team, working in unison to create, pressure the defence and make the important runs to open up the space to create goalscoring opportunities.
Only a perfect performance from Chelsea tonight will be enough to defeat their French opposition, and if their latest snapshot is anything to go by, Chelsea’s magic trio appear in confident mood.
