Eden Hazard has announced Chelsea are ‘back’ and has issued a warning to upcoming opponents Barcelona that they are coming to win when they face each other in the Champions League.
Chelsea cruised to an easy 3-0 win over West Brom on Monday night in the Premier League and the Belgian international managed to score two goals in his side’s victory.
And after his brilliant performance and Chelsea’s return to winning ways, he was nothing but optimistic as the Blues head into their crunch match against La Liga leaders Barcelona in their round-of-16 tie on February 20.
‘Of course we showed a response and did well in front of our fans,’ Hazard said to Sky Sports after Chelsea’s win against the Baggies.
‘It’s always good to play this type of game and now we have two games against Hull and Barca. We are ready.
‘It was not a good moment for us because we lost two games but now we are back, we are Chelsea, we are champions and we have to give everything.’
He continued: ‘I think we need to be in the top four for the Champions League next season and if we can take the FA Cup, but you know we have a lot of games to play – the Champions League too, but it’s not easy to win the Champions League.
‘But we’ll go for everything, we have a good team, good players. We will give everything to achieve our target and when you play for Chelsea the target is trophies.’
Antonio Conte’s next challenge is preparing his side for their match against Hull City on February 16 in the FA Cup fifth round.
