Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho condemned star winger Eden Hazard to the bench as his side beat Aston Villa 2-0 in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday.

Chelsea easily overcame an error-strewn Aston Villa side at Stamford Bridge to register only their third win of the season.

Spanish International striker Diego Costa marked his return to the starting lineup with a goal and an assist.

Eden Hazard, who scored twice for Belgium during the International break, was left on the bench by Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese manager later came out and explained his decision to drop Hazard from the Chelsea starting lineup in an astonishing tirade.

Mourinho slammed last year’s PFA player of the year for his poor work rate during matches and threatened to continue doing so until his “tactical discipline” improved.

As expected, Chelsea fans used twitter to vent out their frustration against Mourinho’s decision to axe their favorite player.
