Chelsea Players Congratulate Leicester City on BPL Title.
Chelsea Stars, Eden Hazard and John Terry have taken to the Club’s website to Congratulate Inspiring Leicester on their Sensational win of the Barclays Premier League 2015/2016 season title. The players have expressed Confidence in Chelsea winning the premier League title next season. . . Eden Hazard has said he hopes Chelsea can challenge for the Premier League title next season after scoring the decisive goal in the title race for the second successive year.
Hazard’s late equaliser in Monday’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham ensured the title for Leicester City.
His goal against Crystal Palace on May 3, 2015 had earned Chelsea the title almost a year to the day beforehand.
“It’s something beautiful for the world of football when a smaller team does something like that,” Hazard told Chelsea’s official website after his strike meant Spurs could no longer catch Leicester.
“It’s been a complicated season for Chelsea and for me. It hasn’t been like last season, but we have three matches left and we want to finish well by winning all three.
“Next season I hope we can have a better season and get the title back.”
Spurs needed to end their 26-year wait for a victory at Chelsea to have any hope of overhauling the Foxes and were 2-0 ahead at half-time through goals from Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.
But Gary Cahill netted soon after the break before Hazard, who a week earlier had said he hoped Spurs would not win the title, struck.
Hazard added: “We know Tottenham haven’t won at Stamford Bridge for many years so it’s good for us the players, and for the fans too. We know how important it is for them that we win derby games, or at least don’t lose them.”
Chelsea captain John Terry hailed Leicester and said: “Congratulations Leicester City, all their players and Claudio Ranieri, who fully deserve the league title this year.”
