Cape Town - Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard has stated that he is eager to claim his first FA Cup trophy this season.

The Belgium international has won the Premier League, EFL Cup, and Europa League titles, but the FA Cup has eluded him thus far in his Blues career.

Their next cup fixture is against Manchester United in the quarter-finals on Monday, and Hazard is determined to get past his former boss, Jose Mourinho, as he sets his sights on the prize.

"It is one of the targets, the FA Cup," he told the club's official website. "I am five years now with Chelsea and I never won this cup so I want it this year.

"We know it is a fight against Man United every time but we did well this season when we won 4-0 at home [against them in the Premier League in October], so we hope we can do the same."
