West Ham fans couldn’t cope with the performance of Chelsea star Eden Hazard as the Belgian made life difficult for the Hammers in the London derby at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

During the match at Stamford Bridge, West Ham fans were taunting their Chelsea rivals by singing ‘he’s off to Madrid’.

But when asked about the chants after the game, Hazard laughed as he told Sky Sports: “They are wrong.

“For now I am just focusing on Chelsea until the end of the season. I want to finish top four and Europa League, we still have a lot to do and then we will see.

“We are in good momentum. We have won three in a row. For the mentality, it is good to keep going.

“Top four and the Europa League is our target so we need to do well in both but we can do it.”

Reports in Spain even claim Real Madrid are close to agreeing a deal with Chelsea for the Belgian captain.

According to reports, the deal will see Hazard earn at least £350,000-a-week over the next six years with Real Madrid, making him among the best-paid players on the planet.

Hazard has however said he will reveal his decision at the end of the season, and for the Belgian, he has insisted that he’s focused on Chelsea for now.

Blues boss Maurizio Sarri was impressed with Hazard’s performance, and speaking after the game Sarri said: “Hazard of course played a wonderful match. He scored an incredible goal. When Hazard is able to play like he did in the last two matches of course it’s easier. We can win against every team.”

Hazard is enjoying his best goalscoring season since his move to Chelsea, but Sarri refused to take the credit and joked that the Belgian’s mum should be the one taking the credit.

Asked if he’d take credit for Hazard’s goalscoring form, Sarri said: “Not at all. It’s a compliment to the mother of Hazard!”
