Yet the nature of the defeat Sunday afternoon will be so alarming for everyone connected to the club, particularly manager Antonio Conte.
Their penultimate four games of the season aside, the Magpies have been soaring in the second half of the campaign.
It is also said that the relationship between Hazard and Conte became "strained" as the campaign has progressed.
As a outcome of this reported lack of support, there's speculation he could be leaving which Bakayoko - who joined the club from Ligue 1 champions Monaco last summer - does not want to see happen. Despite having the slimmest of chances to make a fourth-place finish, Chelsea did not help themselves and succumbed to the pressure.
The race for the top four has been close this season, with Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham all in the hunt for the final two qualifying spots. It has been hard to believe that this was the same man who popularised the switch to a three-at-the-back formation last season.

The Terriers on the other hand are in cloud nine after securing their Premier League status for next season. If looks could kill when Newcastle's third went in, all 11 of Chelsea's players would've dropped dead on the pitch right then.
He has been an on-field leader at Newcastle for some time, with Rafa Benitez having passed him the armband, and while others may be keen to buy into his many qualities, the Nottingham Forest academy graduate is turning a deaf ear to the exit talk.
Antonio Conte has cut an increasingly frustrated figure this season and Redknapp doubts he will stay at Chelsea beyond the summer.
"I thought I had a chance of sneaking into the friendly games but I didn't", he said.

GARY CAHILL claims Chelsea players of took their eye off the ball ahead of this weekend's FA Cup final.
With an FA Cup final on the horizon let's hope Conte can spur his team on for one last match and not only give the neutral a great game, but a performance Chelsea fans can be proud of.
There will be the customary hype preceding this Saturday's showpiece final, but the painful reality is that both finalists have each won once in their last three outings, with ManUre scoring just once and Chelsea a mere twice.
Hazard, though, says European Cup football is not a deal-breaker when it comes to his future with Chelsea, and only hopes the club's supporters still want him at the Bridge next term.
"But I think to finish the season this way is not good for the team, it's not good for the players, it's not good for the fans".
