Eden Hazard admits he did not celebrate Chelsea’s Champions League triumph and is keen to see Real Madrid reclaim the trophy from the blues.

After helping Chelsea win the competition, Mason Mount said: ‘We are in a final and we won it. It’s such a special occasion.

‘I can’t put it into words. It’s impossible. I’ve played in two [previous] finals for Chelsea and we lost them both. It’s all I’ve dreamt of, winning a trophy with Chelsea.
