Piers Morgan set the bait and Chelsea fans were all too ready to bite. The controversial Twitter user’s post on Eden Hazard prior to kick off last night drew an angry tirade of criticism from a number of supporters.

While many users focused on the inclusion of Fernando Torres, Morgan decided to concentrate his attention upon the midfielder who has only recently been named the PFA Young Player of the Year. Despite having tweeted a tongue-in-cheek criticism of the Belgian before, Morgan’s latest comments on Hazard still managed to generate the desired response.

Overrated or not, Hazard was ultimately powerless to prevent Chelsea from exiting the Champions League at the semi final stage last night.
