Eden Hazard gives honest assessment of Chelsea FC right now
Eden Hazard admits that Chelsea FC have some serious work to do after their dramatic dip in form
Eden Hazard has admitted that Chelsea FC must make sure that they do everything in their power to end the season on a high.
The Blues have struggled to produce consistent form in the top flight this season and they have been in particularly stuttering form in recent weeks.
Chelsea FC slumped to a disappointing 3-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge earlier this month to severely damage their hopes of finishing in the top four this season.
The west London side then dropped yet more points in the race for Champions League qualification when they slipped to a disappointing 1-1 draw with West Ham United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
That result left Chelsea FC in fifth place in the Premier League table and 10 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with just six games left to play this season.
Chelsea FC do still have hope of finishing the campaign with a trophy, as they will take on Southampton in the FA Cup semi-finals later this month.
And Hazard has delivered an honest assessment of where Chelsea FC currently stand after their disappointing run of form in recent weeks.
Speaking to Chelsea FC’s website, Hazard said: “I hope, for the Chelsea fans and ourselves, that we can achieve something.
“We still have the FA Cup to play for so we need to bring this trophy to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
“When you play for Chelsea you want to be in the Champions League every year but last year we didn’t play in it and we won the title, so sometimes a bad thing can create a good thing, but we will play [to try to qualify] for the Champions League, for sure.”
Chelsea FC won the Premier League title in style last term in Antonio Conte’s first season in charge at the club.
