Eden Hazard v Tottenham
It was a strange Saturday for Chelsea star Eden Hazard.
Not long before the Blues announced their starting XI for the FA Cup semifinal against Tottenham, news filtered out that Hazard, along with Diego Costa, were being left on the bench.
In the end Antonio Conte was vindicated in his call, as Hazard came off the bench to fire Chelsea 3-2 up in the second half.

Chelsea star makes a promise
After the match finished at Wembley, Hazard gave an excellent quote to Belgium journalist Kristof Terreur in the mixed zone.
A few weeks ago, the nominees for the PFA player of the year award were announced. The players up for the award include N’Golo Kante, Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Harry Kane.
Hazard has now promised that if he wins the top prize, he’ll share the award with his Chelsea team mate Kante.
