Winger fired up for the clash…
Chelsea take on Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16 of the Champions League Tuesday night, and Eden Hazard admits his side are determined to complete the treble this season.
The Blues are in with a realistic chance of winning three trophies this campaign, with the club reaching the final of the Capital One Cup and flying-high in the Premier League.

Hazard recognises the prestigious European competition will certainly be no easy feat, and is realistic about the quality of the sides left in the competition:
“We’re top of the league. Of course we would like to do the treble, but there are a lot of great teams in this competition (Champions League) so we’ll see,” Hazard was quoted by the Mirror.
“It’s true that we’re in good form. We’re top of the league, we’ve strengthened well.”
The 24-year-old also noted PSG’s form this season, yet isn’t getting carried away with confidence ahead of the clash:
“Since I watch Ligue 1, I’ve noticed that PSG are having a bit more trouble this season. But I think they’ll be ready. At this level you can never say in advance who will win,” Hazard continued.
Nonetheless, Mourinho’s men will be confident given their success over PSG in the quarter-finals of the UEFA tournament last season, when they grabbed a place in the semi-final late on in the second-leg through Demba Ba.
The winger also describes the eagerness for the club to get “revenge” on Tottenham Hotspur in the League Cup final after the embarrassing defeat on New Year’s Day:
“We’re in the Capital One Cup final against Tottenham, which will be a good derby. We lost 5-3 at their place a couple of months ago, we want our revenge and this trophy for our fans,” he concluded.
