Chelsea news: Spurs have a new stadium but Blues have trophies, claims Eden Hazard

Eden Hazard has directed a thinly-veiled swipe at Tottenham Hotspur, saying they may have a new stadium but they do not boast any silverware like Chelsea do.

The Belgian, who provided a goal and an assist for the Blues as they dispatched Brighton on Wednesday evening, rejected the idea there has been a power swing in favour of Spurs following the opening of their new stadium.

Hazard was once again instrumental as Chelsea beat Brighton

He said: “I think Tottenham, for two or three years, have been one of the best teams in England.

“That is for sure. I don’t like that, to be fair – we are Chelsea, and it is a big derby against them – but we have to accept it. For the Premier League it is good: a new stadium, they have top players.

“But, in the end, you know at Chelsea we have won a lot of trophies, and they have not. So I hope this continues.”
