Eden Hazard has admitted that he “cannot be happy” at Chelsea FC unless the Blues are winning and challenging for top trophies.

The Blues have struggled to produce consistent performances this season in what has been Antonio Conte’s second season in charge at the west London club.

Chelsea FC are currently in fifth place in the Premier League table and looking as though they are going to miss out on a top-four finish in the Premier League this term.

That means that the west London side are likely to have to settle for a spot in the Europa League for next season rather than the Champions League.

Hazard has insisted that no matter how well he is performing for Chelsea FC, he cannot be satisfied if the team is not winning games and challenging for trophies.

Speaking to Metro, Hazard said: “Yes I have scored some goals – that’s why I am on the pitch – but the thing I want most is for my team to win.

“When we are not winning, I cannot be happy. We are fifth in the Premier League and we are out of the Champions League. We didn’t win the League Cup. So it is a bad season.

“I can score 50 goals – but that isn’t important. The most ­important thing in football is to win something for my team.”

Chelsea FC will be hoping to somehow catch Tottenham Hotspur in the race for Champions League qualification before the season is out.

The Blues are currently five points behind Tottenham in the table with just four games left to play.

The west London side have won the Premier League title in two of the last three seasons but have struggled to produce consistent performances this term.
