Eden Hazard looked back after the important win over Manchester United, in an interview with Chelsea TV. The Belgian’s eighth goal of the season gave the Blues  three vital points in the all-but-finished title race:

“When you win this game it is very important for the rest of the season.

It is always good to win against Manchester United at Stamford Bridgeand we are close to finishing the season and winning the trophy but it has not finished, we have to win two or three more games.

It is close but it is not finished and when you play in the Premier League it is very difficult, and you never know in football.

“It is always good when you score at Stamford Bridge, and against Man United it is very good when the goal gives three points for the team.

“It is my job. I try to score, I try to make assists and to create something for the team and in this game I did it very well, but we realise it is not finished.”

Hazard also praised Kurt Zouma, who did a great job in the middle of the pitch despite usually plying his trade in the back four:

“He is very young, he is very strong and he is very important when he plays as a central defender or in midfield. He played very well and we deserved to win. This guy deserves to be one of the best.”
