Eden Hazard is a man on the move. He has almost agreed a transfer to Real Madrid and is leaving Chelsea after some seven years. During his time, Chelsea have won a lot of trophies but never reached the Champions League final. Spurs have done that this season and it’s making Chelsea fans jealous.
Hazard says that the feeling you get playing for Chelsea is that of being the best club in London. Chelsea won the Europa League this season to continue their tradition of winning trophies but their achievement was out-buzzed by Tottenham’s Champions League final against Liverpool.
Tottenham could only manage a runner-up medal after losing the final by two goals to nil against Liverpool. The last trophy that Spurs won was way back in 2008 when they lifted the League Cup. Since then, the north Londoners have found it hard to make it to the final of any competition and when they do, they lose it to the likes of Liverpool or Chelsea.
“When you play for Chelsea you want to be the best in London. When Tottenham are in the Champions League final, that’s terrible.”

If Mauricio Pochettino stays, all of this might change as Spurs gradually become a perennial force in England and Europe. To the point that they have eclipsed Chelsea in the past couple of seasons.
In the Premier League, Chelsea finished a point above Tottenham after a miserable run-in ruined a lot of the hard-work Spurs put in throughout the season. However, that slump in form can be justified due to Spurs going all the way to the final in the Champions League- a competition the Blues weren’t even qualified for this season.
The Times, they are a changing!
