WATCH: Eden Hazard's missed penalty compeltely sums up Chelsea's season so far

It’s fair to say that Chelsea aren’t haven’t the best of starts to their domestic season. Now it seems that bad fortune is following them in the Champions League too.

With only a few minutes on the clock at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea were awarded a penalty against Maccabi Tel Aviv in their Group G opener.

Eden Hazard stepped up but fired the penalty over the bar.

It left everyone thinking Chelsea had a bigger problem than being 17th in the Premier League (#sorrynotsorry Chelsea fans) as everyone made the same point about how the miss encapsulated their season so far.
