Eden Hazard: Premier League fate in Chelsea’s hands
Eden Hazard declares that Chelsea have the Premier League title 'in their hands' after win over Stoke
Eden Hazard has declared that Chelsea are “confident” of winning the Premier League title this season after they beat Stoke City to move seven points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
Hazard played the full 90 minutes as the Blues sealed a 2-1 win over the Potters at Stamford Bridge to take a step closer towards their first league title since 2010.
And the Belgian playmaker feels that Jose Mourinho’s men now have their destiny in their own hands.
Speaking to Chelsea TV, Hazard said: “We are confident. We are first in the league and we take game after game,” he told ChelseaTV. “We have the title in our hands. We want to bring the trophy to Stamford Bridge.
“In the first half [against Stoke] we created a lot of chances. We played beautiful football and okay, we scored just one goal, but we deserved to score three or four.
“The most important thing was the victory and we did very well till the end.”
Chelsea took the lead against Stoke when Hazard converted a penalty in the 39th minute Cesc Fabregas had been tripped in the box.
Stoke equalised on the stroke of half-time when Charlie Adam scored from his own half with a sensational strike.
However, Loic Remy netted Chelsea’s winner in the 62nd minute after an error from keeper Asmir Begovic.
Chelsea travel to Queens Park Rangers in their next Premier League game.
