"I think the Premier League is hard", the player told ESPN FC.

With the 2018-19 campaign winding down, the race to qualify for next season's Champions League is on with six points separating sixth and third place.

One player who has been a constant for the past 5.5 years has been Eden Hazard.

While sitting fourth in the Premier League and having qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League may be most clubs' dreams, its nearly been a season of nightmares for Chelsea. This year we have less time to be ready for the games.

"From the start of my experience with Chelsea they try to stay behind me in every game and they continue to do this and I am happy and proud for this".

Antonio Conte has thanked Chelsea fans for the support they have shown him. "In my life, I like to be a victor and I am a victor", said the Italian.

Wembley has not always been a happy hunting ground for Tottenham . "The FA needs to go in and take a good decision for football".

Chelsea won the league in Conte's first season in charge, and they made a decision to switch up the squad over the break.

Injured duo Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus could be marking the Chelsea game as a possible return date as they look to get back in action.

Ake, Costa and Matic left the club, with Bakayoko, Rudiger, Zappacosta and Morata joining the squad.

However, with no side having retained the Premier League since 2009, Hazard believes it is the unpredictability of England's top flight that makes it so attractive to players and fans around the world.

"We are giving everything on the pitch, and sometimes thing don't go the way you have trained, like now, but we need to show patience as at the end we could still win a trophy". "That's why football is special", the midfielder added.
