Chelsea were booed off at Stamford bridge following a 1-1 draw with West Ham on Sunday.

The Blues are fifth on the league table and a whooping ten points behind Tottenham who are fourth; and could miss out on Champions League football next season.

But Eden Hazard reckons that such a scenario could turn out a blessing in disguise.

‘When you play for Chelsea, you want to be in the Champions League every year; Hazard told Chelsea official website; but last year we didn’t play in it and we won the title, so sometimes a bad thing can create a good thing, but we will play [to try to qualify] for the Champions League, for sure; he added.

Spanish defender César Azpilicueta had opened the scoring for Antonio Conte’s side but Javier Hernandez, on as a second-half substitute, earned the Hammers a point.

Hazard whose not-too-good season reflects how poor Chelsea has been in this campaign added;

‘When you see the game we did everything, especially in the first half.

‘This season isn’t going well, we made some mistakes and conceded a goal. Then, in front of goal we didn’t score, so that’s it, at the end of the game it’s 1-1 and we are all sad.

‘We need to work together. There are six games left to play in the league and we will try everything to be in the top four at the end of the season.’

‘This season a lot of the games have been the same,’ Hazard added. ‘I remember away at Manchester United, we were in control of the game and in the end we lost.

‘Last week against Tottenham, we were in control in the first half and then we lost the game, so this season isn’t going well. We need to work together.’

‘I hope, for the Chelsea fans and ourselves, that we can achieve something.

‘We still have the FA Cup to play for so we need to bring this trophy to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
