Arsenal draw with Spurs was the talk of the Chelsea dressing room, says Hazard

CHELSEA star Eden Hazard has revealed that he and his team-mates spoke about taking advantage of Arsenal and Tottenham following their draw.

The Belgian forward has claimed that the Blues squad discussed the 1-1 draw at Wembley in the dressing room away at Fulham, and how it provided extra motivation.

Hazard helped the Blues beat the Cottagers 2-1 yesterday, with goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Jorginho.

The vital win for the West Londoners has put Maurizio Sarri's side just one point behind fifth-placed Arsenal.

And if Chelsea win their game in hand, they will leapfrog Manchester United back into the top four, and would trail Spurs in third by two points.

Speaking to Chelsea TV, Hazard said: "We talked together in the dressing room about Arsenal-Tottenham. Both lost two points.

"Top four is a hard war, because we're not only four teams, we're six teams.

"Now we have 11 games to play till the end of the season. We'll try to take the maximum points."

Hazard added of the result against Fulham: "The performance was great and we took three points."

The Real Madrid target became just the third Chelsea player in the Premier League to both score and assist 50 goals in the top-flight.
