The Blues will end the campaign without silverware for the first time in three years, but with confidence restored after a sustained title challenge.

Jose Mourinho's men also reached the Champions League semi-finals, only to lose to Atletico Madrid as the Spaniards reached their first European Cup final in 40 years.

"The Premier League is objective number one and this season we were almost in the final of the Champions League, almost champions in the Premier League," said Hazard.

"I hope next season will be better."

Hazard has been in sparkling form this term and is determined to finish the campaign on a high at Cardiff City Stadium after last weekend's goalless draw with Norwich.

He added: "It's very important because we lost two points in the last game against Norwich and we need to finish with one victory for the fans.

"I hope for a good game and we want to enjoy on the pitch."

Mourinho is also hoping to rouse his players for one last effort with Chelsea still able to finish second with a win if Liverpool lose at home to Newcastle.

He said: "You could see against Norwich it's difficult to find the right energy, the right mental approach when the season is over.

"No more objectives. You know that you finish in that position. You know that you don't finish fourth, you know that you don't finish second. The season is over.

"Some players now they turn completely to the World Cup and to the fears before a World Cup. This is a real difficult moment to be at a high level.

"But of course you put on the shirt, you go for a Premier League game, you have to find the minimum required to perform and to try to get a good result."
