Eden Hazard has issued a warning to Tottenham Hotspur in the quest for a top-four finish in the Premier League (via The Evening Standard).
It’s going to be a fascinating next few weeks in the Premier League as the top five becomes four.
Manchester City may have the Premier League title wrapped up but the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea are still in with a chance of a top-four finish.
The Blues are now just five points behind their London neighbours and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard has issued a warning to Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
“We are still hoping that we can finish in the top four. It’s going to be difficult but sometimes a difficult challenge can be good.
“We are going to give everything and we are hoping that the others will drop points. We have reached the final but now we are going to focus on the Premier League first.”
Eden Hazard was speaking after Saturday’s FA Cup semi-finals. The Blues beat Southampton to reach the Wembley final but Spurs were knocked out at the penultimate hurdle by Manchester United. Antonio Conte and the rest of the Chelsea players will be hoping that this acts as a rallying cry for the final weeks of the season.
