Eden Hazard has taken a slight dig at Tottenham, saying he is impressed with their new stadium, and not jealous because Chelsea have won more trophies.
Their London rivals marked their first competitive match at their new home with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace as they remain in contention for a strong finish in the Premier League.
Spurs still have games against Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United to ensure Champions League qualification.

Hazard acknowledges that Chelsea's ambition to finish in top four will be a big challenge while also aiming a cheeky jibe at Tottenham.
"I think Tottenham, for two or three years, have been one of the best teams in England. That is for sure," Hazard said at Stamford Bridge after beating Brighton at Stamford Bridge.
"We are Chelsea, and it is a big derby. I don’t like that to be fair, but we have to accept it. For the Premier League it is good – a new stadium, they have top players.
"But, at the end, at Chelsea, we won a lot of trophies, they have not, so I hope this continues. I think that I like that because people are not talking about Chelsea for the top four. We are quiet, fifth, sixth and then we can be ready for the game.
"We want to go game after game. We have hard games coming up against Liverpool, Manchester United, but you know Chelsea is a top club. We like this challenge so we will go to these teams and try to win because at the end we want top four."

The Blues have two option to make it through to the Champions League, winning the Europa League could be an alternative opportunity if they finish outside the top four position.
Hazard says the 3-0 win over Brighton has left his team feeling confident ahead of their next game against London rivals West Ham.
"Yes, of course. We had a hard game against Cardiff," he added.
"Today, we just had the control of the game from the beginning, we scored a great goal in the first half, and then we controlled until the end. I think we are very happy with today."
