Following Chelsea’s poor 3-1 defeat to Tottenham,
“It could have been a lot worse on Saturday,” ?Hazard said. “Everything was bad against ?Spurs. Against Tottenham it is always going to be hard to start a game 2-0 down.
“When we are losing, you can always find an excuse but Tottenham were just better.”
The ?Chelsea talisman did not mix his words in the interview and his brutal honesty shows just how bad he felt his team performed.
The Lillywhites made the breakthrough inside the opening ten minutes when ?Dele Alli flicked in a header. A second from ?Harry Kane just eight minutes later gave Chelsea to big a mountain to climb.
Both Kane and Son were even afforded the luxury of missing missing big opportunities without ever looking like the wasted chances could come back and haunt them.
Eden Hazard: “I have 1 year left in June. If I don’t extend, it (a move) is possible. I can’t see myself leaving in January. I wouldn’t do that to the club, the fans. Next summer it’s a possibility, but it’s also possible that I spend the rest of my career at Chelsea.” (Canal +) pic.twitter.com/YBZ2nPyNh1

The loss places Tottenham now above Chelsea in the league table. However, next up for Spurs they must travel to Arsenal for the North London derby, whereas Chelsea face Fulham at home in their very own local derby.
Hazard will hope and expect both his team and himself to return to form immediately.
