Hazard fancies Chelsea title tilt

Belgium superstar Eden Hazard believes Chelsea are capable of offering a strong challenge to Manchester City and Liverpool for the Premier League title this season.

The Blues have made a strong start under Maurizio Sarri with four straight victories and this sees them just behind Liverpool on goal difference at the top of the table.

As such, Hazard is pleased with how the club have begun the campaign and he has spoken about the team's prospects of securing a third league title in five season.

"We are a little bit in the shadow," Hazard is quoted as saying by Standard Sport. "That is good. We just try to do our job, win games and then we will see.

"We want to be champions, even if we know it is going to be hard because City, Liverpool and Tottenham are very strong. We will see at the end but we want to be on the top."

Hazard has been the standout performer for the Blues since the start of the season and he has contributed a goal or an assist in each of the four league games this term.

Apart from him, Pedro has been on the scoresheet on three occasions but there remains concerns regarding the form of Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud upfront.
