Former Tottenham star Jermaine Jenas told Eden Hazard he’s ‘too good’ to stay at Chelsea after the Belgian’s display in the Blues’ 1-0 defeat to Spurs on Tuesday.
Maurizio Sarri’s side dominated at Wembley but Harry Kane’s first half penalty was enough to give Spurs the advantage heading into the second leg semi-final at Stamford Bridge later this month.
Hazard was Chelsea’s most likely source of an equaliser and grew into the game when Olivier Giroud’s introduction allowed him to move back into his favoured position on the wing.
The Belgian has 18 months to run on his deal at Chelsea and is debating a move to ‘dream’ club Real Madrid.
And Jenas has suggested he should take up the opportunity because he’s ‘too good’ for Chelsea.
‘How good has Hazard been tonight? Demanding the ball, going by players.
‘I never thought I would say it, but he’s too good for this Chelsea team.’

Hazard has postponed a decision over his future until the end of the season, when he’ll only have 12 months to run on his contract.
Chelsea have offered Hazard record-breaking wages to make him the highest paid player in the club’s history but it’s looking increasingly likely that he’ll leave.
