Hazard played at Tottenham for seven years between 1978 and 1985 and has kept the club in his heart following his playing days.
Sunday’s victory has now moved Spurs within a point of City, who are currently top of the Premier League pile.
They will be buoyed by the victory against one of their title opponents, as they aim to finish in a position higher than the third place they managed in the recent campaign.
They will face Tony Pulis’ West Brom side at the Hawthorns in the next fixture after the international break, who are currently sat in ninth place.
