Fans on Twitter react to Hazard’s comments

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea - White Hart Lane

Eden Hazard’s comments that the Chelsea squad do not want Tottenham to win the title have provoked strong reactions on Twitter.

Title rivals Leicester and Spurs both have to visit Stamford Bridge before the end of the season, but Blues winger Hazard said he believed the Foxes deserved to be champions.

Cesc Fabregas, a former Arsenal midfielder, had earlier also said Chelsea were determined to stop Tottenham – and the pair’s remarks were not well received by some.

Many Chelsea fans, though, enjoyed Hazard’s fighting talk and predicted he would play a big part when the two sides meet next week.

Some Arsenal supporters found themselves in the unusual position of being behind Chelsea, but a few Manchester United and Liverpool fans were unimpressed with Hazard’s behaviour.
