Eden Hazard sent an ultimatum to Chelsea that he wants Champions League football. Speaking after the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford, he said,
“Chelsea first,” Hazard, who is regularly linked with Real Madrid, told Sky Sports when asked about his future.
“Chelsea has to play in the Champions League every year, it is one of the biggest clubs in the world.
“As for myself, of course I want to play in the Champions League, but we will see.”
“A good day, but it could be better. We came here just thinking of winning the game,” Hazard continued.
“A draw is not a bad result for us but I think if we believe a bit more with our chances we could have scored another goal.
“But it is a good result, now we have two games, one at home and one away, so we will try to be in the top four at the end.
“Today we had a reaction. That’s a good thing. We scored a good goal, in the second half I don’t remember one chance for them. We played a good game.”
“Yes, but it is not just this season that we always have a lot of games,” Hazard added. “We know the Premier League is not easy.
“You need to fight for 90 minutes to win a game. It is hard but we have everything, physios and stuff, to work very well.
“To play away is not the same as playing at home. We have big players, we can handle the pressure.
“We need a bit of, not motivation, but determination, to score the goals that can make the difference between a draw and a win.”
