Chelsea still have both Tottenham and Leicester left to play this season, but Cesc Fabregas and Hazard have both gone on record to state that they want Claudio Ranieri’s side to win the title.
Spurs fans now question whether Chelsea’s motivation to play against Leicester on the final day of the season will be as high as it is when they meet Mauricio Pochettino’s side next weekend.
Now Hazard is talking about us! I find it strange for a player to come out and talk about another team. He loves THFC.— Ashley Braunton (@THFC_believe) April 23, 2016

Lolz @ Hazard saying he wants Leic to win the Prem; man's been so anonymous this season resorted to this to get his name in papers! #COYS— SpursForum.co.uk (@SpursForum) April 23, 2016
Hazard's comments came following Chelsea's 4-1 victory over Bournemouth yesterday.
Tottenham are currently sat five points behind Leicester, but the league table could look very different by Monday evening.
The Foxes are due to take on Swansea City later today, without their main striker Jamie Vardy.
Spurs, meanwhile, face West Bromwich Albion at White Hart Lane on Monday night, in a match which they will be expecting to win.
Leicester still remain the odds-on favourites to lift the Premier League, but the pressure is well and truly on, as they chase the three victories which would seal their success.
