Chelsea ace, Eden Hazard has issued out warning to Manchester City and Liverpool following his side’s 2-1 victory over Brighton in the Premier League encounter played on Sunday.
Goals from Pedro and Eden Hazard ensured victory for Maurizio Sarri’s side against Brighton.
However, a goal from Solomon March was not enough to give the hosts a point against the Blues.
Hazard warned Pep Guardiola’s men and Jurgen Klopp’s side that Chelsea are determined to finish top on the Premier League table this term.
“We want to be top of the league at the end of the season,” Hazard was quoted by Metro UK as saying after the match.
“We know Man City and Liverpool are good teams – we don’t want the gap to be big.”
“I like to score, but it’s not important for me. “The most important thing is to win games. I just enjoy my football and that’s why I’’m on the pitch.
“We knew before the game that we need to score a third goal. When it’s 3-0 it’s harder for teams to get back. But we didn’t and conceded – you feel the pressure. “But we managed the game well.”
Chelsea are fourth place on the Premier League table with 37 points from 17 games
Liverpool currently top the Premier League table with 45 points from 17 games, while Man City are second place with 44 points from the same number of games.
“Real Reason Why Zidane Quit As Real Madrid Coach” – Calderon
Former Real Madrid president, Ramon Calderon has revealed Zinedine Zidane quit as coach over a disagreement regarding who was in control of transfers.
Calderon said the Frenchman walked away from Santiago Bernabeu because he wanted Gareth Bale sold instead of Cristiano Ronaldo, but president Florentino Perez had other ideas.
“Zidane made it very clear when he decided to leave the club,”he told Bleacher Report.
“He insisted on keeping Cristiano and transferring Bale, and the president did completely the opposite.
“Zidane also wanted to sign some players and transfer others apart from Bale but he didn’t get [his wishes], so he decided to leave. And he was right.”
Calderon added that:-
“The point with Cristiano was not only that he scored 50 goals per season but also that he was a leader. He could help team-mates. He was always encouraging them to play better, to train more.
“For me, that is the main problem not only the loss of his goals but Cristiano’s behaviour, his attitude.”

‘Pogba Should Have Gotten Red Card In Tottenham vs Man United’- Graeme Souness
Graeme Souness has criticised referee Mike Dean for not sending off Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, for his challenge on Tottenham’s Dele Alli.
Pogba set up Marcus Rashford for the only goal of the game, as United secured a 1-0 victory at Wembley.
However, Souness believes that Pogba’s challenge in the 78th minute, should have resulted in a red card instead of a yellow.
Speaking on Sky Sports, Souness said:
“I think it’s a red card. And there’s not one ounce of doubt in my mind. He knew what he was doing.
“You step over it, you use your strength to keep the player away, but look where the ball is, look where the foot is.
“If that referee doesn’t see that as a red card, he sees it as a foul, he sees it as a yellow card, then he knows nothing about football, the referee. There wasn’t one ounce of doubt in my mind he’s gone over the ball to do him.”
