Chelsea fans think they spotted Fabinho doing something disgusting to Eden Hazard - Mirror Online

Chelsea had an afternoon to forget as their top four hopes were dealt a blow by a 2-0 defeat at Liverpool .

The Reds struck a quick-fire second half double to down Maurizio Sarri's side, with Eden Hazard missing a couple of chances to get them back into the game.

Hazard had a rough afternoon as he was on the receiving end of some rough treatment in the first half having been isolated in a central role.

He went down and received treatment after a kick on the ankle just 10 minutes into the game - and eagle-eyed Chelsea fans think they spotted something disgusting done by Fabinho as he was on the deck.

A clip posted on social media shows midfielder Fabinho clearing his nose, with the camera angle appearing to show him stepping forward towards Hazard before doing so.
