Eden Hazard miss means Chelsea have hit woodwork 21 times this season… more than three times as many as Man Utd

CHELSEA have hit the woodwork 21 times in the Premier League this season – more than three times as many as Manchester United.

Eden Hazard was the latest Stamford Bridge star to be denied by the post during Sunday's 2-0 defeat to Liverpool.

After 34 games, Chelsea have hit the woodwork more than any other team in the English top flight this season.

Manchester City are second in the table with 19, while league leaders Liverpool secured the final podium spot with 17.

Arsenal have only had seven shots denied by the post or crossbar, but United are bottom of the pile with just six.

Chelsea are slumped at fifth in the table and their only hope of lifting a trophy this year is in the Europa League.

Furious fans have called for Maurizio Sarri's men to start taking their chances in front of goal.

One said: "Hopefully next season we put those chances away, bring through youth and keep to a long term project."

After viewing the statistics, one fan added: "Lmao. F*****g end this season already."
