Eden Hazard has admitted he hopes that Leicester will beat Tottenham to the title this season.

The Foxes currently hold a five point advantage at the top of the table from Spurs ahead of their showdown against Swansea this afternoon. Mauricio Pochettino's men take on West Brom at White Hart Lane tomorrow.

Although reigning champions Chelsea are out of the running after a poor campaign, they'll still have a role to play as they take on Spurs in eight days' time.

Blues and former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas recently caused a stir amongst fans after admitting that he wants Leicester to beat Spurs to the title while working as a pundit on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football.

Now Hazard, who was close to signing for Tottenham before he joined Chelsea from Lille, has followed suit, and says he'd prefer to see London rivals Spurs miss out - going as far as to say that everyone at Stamford Bridge is hoping they fail.

"The fans, the club, the players, we don't want Tottenham to win the Premier League," the 25-year-old told BBC's Match of the Day programme.

"We hope for Leicester because they deserve to be champions this season. We have a good game next week against Tottenham and if we can beat them it will be good."

Hazard's remarks has caused a stir, with some questioning the Belgian's professionalism given he could have a major say in how the title race works out. You can check out the reaction below.

The Chelsea winger, who is the reigning PFA Player of the Year, scored his first league goal of the campaign in the 4-1 win against Bournemouth.

What do you think has been the problem with Eden Hazard this season?
