Eden Hazard has revealed that he has his sights set on becoming a Chelsea FC legend after scoring his 100th goal for the Stamford Bridge outfit.

The Belgium international broke the deadlock in the first half of Chelsea FC’s 2-1 win against Watford at Vicarage Road on Wednesday night.

Hazard’s first-half strike was his 100th goal for Chelsea FC since his move to the west London side from French outfit Lille in 2012.

The 27-year-old doubled his tally to restore Chelsea FC’s lead after the break to notch up his 101st goal for the Blues.

Hazard has been persistently linked with a move to La Liga giants Real Madrid over the past 12 months or so.

The Belgian forward has little over 18 months left to run on his current deal with Chelsea FC to raise questions about his long-term future.

However, Hazard has outlined his desire to establish himself as a undisputed Chelsea FC legend alongside iconic names such as Frank Lampard and John Terry.

“It means a lot, especially because we also won [at Watford],” Hazard told Sky Sports.

“Scoring 101 goals with this amazing club is something I will never forget, but now I think the fans, the staff, myself, the players, we want more.

“I want to score more for this club and then try to be a legend like [Frank] Lampard, [John]Terry, [Didier] Drogba, I try to do my best. But when we are winning we can enjoy a lot.”

Chelsea FC are in fourth place in the Premier League table and two points ahead of Arsenal in the race to secure a Champions League spot this season.

The Blues will taken on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in their next Premier League fixture on Sunday.
