Jose Mourinho on the Stoke game and Eden Hazard's new contract


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his players are ready for a tough set of fixtures during the Christmas period.

The Blues face Stoke City away from home on Monday before hosting West Ham United on Friday and Southampton two days later on December 28.

"Everybody has to play these four matches in this short space of time so everybody is in the same circumstances," Mourinho said.

"Obviously some are lucky to have easier fixtures in this period but that's a draw and you can't do anything about that. For us it's difficult: three matches away and only one at home.

"Even the one we have at home will be a London derby against one of the best teams in the competition and the three matches away are Tottenham, Southampton and Stoke so it's difficult for us but we are ready."

Meanwhile, Mourinho confirms midfielder Eden Hazard is set to sign a new contract with the club.

"He will [sign]," said Mourinho.

"My club always told me that the situation would finish with a new contract, so I was never worried about that.

"I was never worried about it, since the moment I met his father. Everything was very clear about their intentions and their happiness to stay with Chelsea."
