Eden Hazard has made the headlines for his comments off the pitch once again, as the Chelsea winger took a major shot at Londo rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
Mauricio Pochettino's side was full of joy as the team was finally able to play on their brand new world-class stadium, defeating Crystal Palace 2-0 on Wednesday to take down Chelsea all the way to the 5th spot despite a 3-0 triumph of their own.
Tottenham's new home is one of the most impressive buildings in the world right now. Still, the Belgian winger was far from impressed with it, stating they still have the upper hand when it comes to silverware.
“I think Tottenham, for two or three years, have been one of the best teams in England. That is for sure. I don’t like that, to be fair – we are Chelsea, and it is a big derby against them – but we have to accept it, For the Premier League it is good: a new stadium, they have top players. But, in the end, you know at Chelsea we have won a lot of trophies, and they have not. So I hope this continues. People are not talking about Chelsea for the top four and I like that, ”Hazard told The Guardian.
Moreover, the Belgian claimed Chelsea is currently focused on finishing the season on a high note, especially considering how tough their schedule is about to get.
“We are quiet, in fifth or sixth, and then we can just be ready for the next game. We want to go game after game. We have hard matches coming up against Liverpool and Manchester United, but Chelsea is a top club. We like this challenge so we will go to these teams and try to win because, in the end, we want top four," he concluded.
