Eden Hazard not giving up on top-four race

Liverpool

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud

And he's been widely talked up as a Real Madrid transfer target with a squad overhaul on the cards at the Bernabeu this summer.

The race for the final two Champions League spots in the Premier League looks set to go down to the wire after Chelsea beat Liverpool 1-0 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

And it was there that the prospect of joining United was put to him - which he resoundingly dismissed.

The Belgium global was showing off his new hair cut on a live stream on social media and noted a comment urging him to "come to United", but he immediately waved it away, saying "no chance" before bursting out laughing. And, just to make sure there was absolutely no doubt, he followed that up by saying "Chelsea baby" along with his barber, who seems to be an avid Blues fan.

"Beating Liverpool was a massive result".

"It is not in our hands", said Hazard. His goal proved to be enough to secure Chelsea a vital three points in our quest for Champions League qualification. "It does not only depend on us but we will play, we will hopefully win, and then we will see the results of Tottenham and Liverpool and we will give everything".

Sturridge has scored just three goals this season across only 613 minutes of football, with his career now appearing to have gone badly off track. Let's hope that he gets fit and back in action as soon as possible.

"Today he played a very good game and worked very hard without the ball, but I am pleased for the whole performance of the whole team".
