Cape Town - Chelsea winger Eden Hazard said the pressure was on ahead of Saturday’s 3-1 win over Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

The Belgian scored for the Blues after an own goal from Adam Smith had opened the scoring, and they had to take three points after Tottenham had also won earlier in the day.

"We passed a test. We knew the result of Tottenham before the game and today we deserved to win," Hazard told BT Sport.

"It's more easy to control the game when you score first but at the end of the first half we were a little bit down. But in the second half we did well to control the game.”

The Blues have now regained their seven-point lead at the top of the standings as they close in on silverware.

"We have to believe in everything,” Hazard added. "Now is one step closer to the title and we have seven games left."

The Blues next travel to Old Trafford to face an in form United side in an English Premiership clash and will be looking to complete the double over Jose Mourinho's side.
