Hazard hails Chelsea's 1-0 win over United.

The Blues secured a 1-0 win over Manchester United on Saturday to edge closer to the Premier League title and match winner Eden Hazard heaped praise on the their all-round performance against the Reds.

The Belgium international Hazard broke the deadlock in the 38th minute to hand Jose Mourinho's men a vital win at Stamford Bridge, and the 24-year-old spoke about how important it was to get maximum points on the day.

‘When you win this game it is very important for the rest of the season,’ Hazard said as Chelseafc.com reported.

‘It is always good to win against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge and we are close to finishing the season and winning the trophy but it has not finished, we have to win two or three more games.

‘It is close but it is not finished and when you play in the Premier League it is very difficult, and you never know in football.’

He added: ‘It is always good when you score at Stamford Bridge, and against Man United it is very good when the goal gives three points for the team.

‘It is my job. I try to score, I try to make assists and to create something for the team and in this game I did it very well, but we realise it is not finished.’
