Chelsea FC news: Eden Hazard hoping Blues reclaim Premier League crown next season

3 May

Eden Hazard is hoping to help Chelsea reclaim the Premier League trophy next season, having scored the decisive goals in the last two title races.

The Belgian winger’s most recent Stamford Bridge goals have been incredibly important, having netted against Crystal Palace last season to win the league for the Blues, and then bagging the equalising goal against Spurs on Monday to send the title to Leicester.

The West London club have not once been in the hunt for the title this season, but Hazard’s sublime strike to tie the game ensured that the Blues played a key role in the title race, and he was delighted to see the Foxes claim silverware.

However, he is not ready to dwell on their success, with plans to lead Chelsea to the Premier League crown again next season.

“It’s something beautiful for the world of football when a smaller team does something like that,” Hazard said on of Leicester’s triumph.

“It’s been a complicated season for Chelsea and for me. It hasn’t been like last season but we have three matches left and we want to finish well by winning all three.

“(And) next season I hope we can have a better season and get the title back.”

Spurs needed to end their 26-year wait for victory at Chelsea to have any hope of overhauling the Foxes and were 2-0 ahead at half-time through goals from Harry Kane, with his 25th league goal of the season, and Son Heung-min.

Gary Cahill netted before Hazard, rounding off a performance which was undoubtedly Chelsea’s best of the campaign.

Chelsea fans chanted ‘Leicester, Leicester’ as Spurs folded, and Hazard was pleased him and his teammates finally put on a perforamnce to please their fans after a dreadful season.

Hazard added: “We know Tottenham haven’t won at Stamford Bridge for many years so it’s good for us the players, and for the fans too. We know how important it is for them that we win derby games, or at least don’t lose them.”
