Chelsea received their first major setback on Saturday as their unbeaten run ended at the hands of London rivals Tottenham following a 3-1 defeat at Wembley.

It was a below-par performance from Maurizio Sarri's men as Spurs dominated and cruised to victory, leapfrogging Chelsea into third in the mean time.

Eden Hazard was kept quiet and the Belgian has admitted that they are looking at a top four finish rather than winning the Premier League title.

Quoted by the Evening Standard, he said: "We are thinking about finishing in the top four, not to be the champions. We know City are not much better than Chelsea but they are better at the moment.

"In what areas are City better? A lot of things: possession; when they have chances, they score; maybe defensively they are better. They have top players.

"Is it due to their consistency as well, winning game after game? Yes, of course. They are in a good momentum since last year and we need to be back like this."

The 27-year-old is only stating the obvious, but let's hope we can push for more than just top four and secure some silverware.
