Chelsea star Eden Hazard gave his thoughts ahead of Premier League clash and London derby against Tottenham, which is set for this afternoon (4PM BST).
The Belgian star told Chelsea’s official website: “We had a couple of bad games last month but before we went away for the international break we wanted to reach the semi-finals of the FA Cup, and we did, so the confidence is back and everyone is focused on this game”.
“We know it’s a massive one if we want to reach our target of finishing in the top four. We’re ready to play a good game”.
The Belgian international won 6 of the 12 matches played against the Spurs since joining the Blues in 2012.
He added: “I think in the last two or three years especially it hasn’t been easy to win against them. Mauricio Pochettino, is very good, Harry Kane has been on fire and they have a lot of top players like Moussa Dembele”.
“It’s a massive derby for the fans and a huge game for us. We are all focused. There is only one way for us to play and that’s to try to win the game. In France we say a derby is not like a normal game, it doesn’t matter how you play, you just need to win. When we play against Tottenham everybody thinks the same”.
