Chelsea star Eden Hazard has admitted that the club would prefer Leicester City to win the Premier League this season than Tottenham.
The Foxes took another big step towards the most unlikely of title victories today, with a 4-0 win against Swansea City at the King Power Stadium.
Chelsea, despite their struggles at times this season, still have a significant part to play in the title race, as they have to play both Leicester and Spurs in their remaining games.
And Belgian ace Hazard believes the Blues are behind Claudio Ranieri’s side, as Chelsea prepare for their next game, against Mauricio Pochettino’s charges.
Hazard revealed on Match of the Day after Chelsea’s 4-1 win at Bournemouth on Saturday:
‘We don’t want – the fans, the club, the players – Tottenham to win the Premier League, but in football you never know.
‘We hope for Leicester because they deserve to be champions this season, but we will see.
‘We have a good game next week against Tottenham, if we can beat them it will be good.”
