Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have enjoyed their weekend, as the Blues kept their hopes of a domestic double alive by defeating Tottenham Hotspur 4-2 in the semi-finals of the FA Cup at Wembley.
The victory will give Antonio Conte’s side a huge boost as they prepare for the latter stages of their title charge, having seen their advantage in the Premier League standings drop to just four-points in recent weeks.
That loss of form has opened the door for Spurs to push for success but the Lilywhites are unlikely to overhaul that deficit and win the Premier League, according to the punters in the bar that have analysed the remaining fixtures of the two sides.
Chelsea have also been handed another boost on the transfer front, as The Sun reports Real Madrid may drop their interest in Blues ace Eden Hazard – as they contemplate giving starlet Marco Asensio the opportunity to develop.
The 21-year-old has excelled for Zinedine Zidane’s side, making a bold impression during his array of first-team opportunities, and the £3.5m bargain is seen as a potential superstar for Los Blancos in the coming years.
Our landlord believes Real Madrid will still eye a move for Eden Hazard though despite these claims, as he feels they’ll prepare for the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo in the coming years.
