Eden Hazard believes winning one trophy this season is a minimum requirement for a club of the stature of Chelsea, according to the London Evening Standard.
The Blues climbed to the summit of the Premier League on the weekend after easing past Newcastle 3-0 at Stamford Bridge.
Hazard scored his first hat-trick for the club in that game to mark yet another stellar performance in what has so far been an outstanding season for the 23-year-old.
And, the Belgian admits his side need to win something: "We’re at Chelsea, in a club where you’re obliged to try and win something every season. We will be involved in the title race right to the wire.
"It will be tough in the Champions League and in the FA Cup, we’re playing at Manchester City, which is going to be difficult."
Despite beating City and moving to the top of the league, manager Jose Mourinho has tried to play down his side's chances, and Hazard has agreed it will be difficult:
"No-one is getting carried away because we know there are plenty of big games ahead. We have beaten possibly the best team (City) in the league, but we have to get maximum points from the games coming up.
“It’s going to be a tasty end to the season and we have to wait and see how many trophies we can win.”
Chelsea are currently two points ahead of the 'favourites' Manchester City, and one ahead of Arsenal, who they still need to play.
And Mourinho's men will be hopeful they can progress in the Champions League. The club won the competition in 2012 and face Galatasary in this season's last-16 tie.
The Special One has certainly reinvigorated Chelsea's league form, and the fans will surely want at least one trophy in Mourinho's first season back.
