Eden Hazard was the absolute protagonist of Chelsea impressive victory and display at Stamford Bridge tonight:

“It was an unbelievable win. We scored five beautiful goals and could have scored more,” the Belgian said to BT Sport.

“I am enjoying my football, we are playing well, we are creating a lot of chances and scoring a lot of goals.

“It’s not bad. We are in a good place.

“We want to stay there until the end. We will fight until the end to be there.”

It’s well-known Iker Casillas and José Mourinho relationship fell out in the last year the Portuguese was in charge at Real Madrid.

Maybe this is the reason why the current Porto goalkeeper liked Chelsea captain John Terry‘s post to celebrate today’s sensational win over Manchester United, that was trashed 4-0 by the Blues at Stamford Bridge.

Liverpool lost their first pre-season game of the year on Wednesday when Chelsea beat them 1-0, a goal from Gary Cahill sealed the victory for the Blues.

After the game, Jurgen Klopp heaped praise on the Italian manager. He told ESPN FC Conte is brilliant and will succeed at Stamford Bridge as the pair both gear up for a full season in charge of their respective teams.

“I saw him [Conte] actually at the European Championships and, yeah, he was quite emotional [on the touchline and] I thought, ‘sometimes am I like this?’

“He’s a brilliant manager and it will be a tough season for both of us.”

Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink‘s words after the win at Bournemouth:

“We are very pleased with the performance, especially second half,” he said.

“The first half was a very open game. We played a side who are very good in the build-up of the game and from that they create good chances. We could have scored more goals and so could they and it was a very entertaining game.

“We made some little changes in the positions at half-time and from then on we could be in control and were very dominant in the second-half. It was good to see the players were enjoying it and looking for the attack and for the goal. It was nice to see some players who have been absent recently were scoring and enjoying goals.”

On Eden Hazard good performance he said:

“We worked for the last 10 days with him with the group, looking at his way of moving and it was good. He was light in his movement and so I said he starts this game and we’ll see how it goes. We talked about 45 minutes or a bit more but he was enjoying it so much he could play the whole game, and that was a sign of the good spirit of his and of the team.”

Also Cesc Fabregas had a stunning performance, giving 3 assists for the first 3 Chelsea goals:

“He was enjoying it very much and he is one of the few who has this vision. He knows he can execute what he is thinking. We practise on that and when he is on the ball we have running players to make his fast vision effective.”

Hiddink also spoke about next Chelsea game, a Monday night clash against Spurs on 2 May that can decide the title race:

“We have talked about it this week, that we don’t want this season to fade away. The players responded very well and this was an intense game.

“We go into next games with nothing effectively at stake for us but if we play like we did today then, although a win is not guaranteed, the attitude means the players will do everything until the end of the season. We play the next game to win and that is Tottenham.”

Cesc Fabregas is happy for Chelsea’s second half performance and wants to finish properly the season.

He told Sky Sports: “To be honest I think we were a bit lucky, especially in the first twenty minutes they were pushing and started stronger than us.”

“But we managed to score the first goal with a fantastic counter-attack, before half time we scored the second and conceded 1-2 just after a corner, a bit disappointing.”

“Anyway in the second half we played really well, we controlled the game and scored more goals.”

“Was a really nice game, too open actually, but this is normal, was a nice game at the end of the season. Sometimes you don’t score goals for a while and sometimes you have four goals in a game: this is football.”

“I am happy for team’s performance and I am feeling good, but at this stage of the season we just want to finish strong, with dignity, we have to win to try to make our fans a little bit proud because obviously this has been a disappointing season.”

Ahead of the clash tomorrow between Bournemouth and Chelsea, Cherries boss Eddie Howe took a moment during his press conference to reflect on the previous, away encounter Bournemouth had with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, earlier in the season when Glenn Murray scored the winner to beat Chelsea 1-0.
 “That win was about us,” the English coach said.
“It was a historic moment for the club and one of the turning points of the season. It made us feel, ‘we’re a good team here, we can do special things.’ It’s all well and good saying you can do it, but delivering it pushed the players’ confidence to do it again. 
“We backed that win up with good performances, I look back with fond memories of that night.
“If someone had have said at the start of the season that we could go level on points with Chelsea in April, I would have dismissed it, but if it was a fact, I’d have said we’d have been challenging for the league title!
“Our motivation is high, regardless of whatever objectives either side has, this is Chelsea at home.”

Swansea manager Francesco Guidolin spoke after 1-0 today’s victory against Chelsea; he said now his side should be nearly safe from relegation zone after hitting the 40-point mark after beating Blues at Liberty Stadium.

He told Skysports: “We know it is not completely done, but now I think we can see a way forward and are not looking behind. It is an important moment for the club. It is not easy. I want my team to be focused.”

“This is a proud day for me and for the players. We need to finish the season well.”

About Swansea performance: “That was the best performance since I took over, the first half we very good and I am very happy. This is my team and how I want them to play.”

About his team: “I knew we could play this way but as a new manager I had to get to know my players and today I saw my team play as I want – with intensity, quality and aggression.”

“We’ve missed only one thing. We deserved to win by more and we should have scored a couple more in the first half. We have played well in other games – away to Everton and at home to Crystal Palace – but this was the best.”
