Hazard names club that’ll win Premier League this season ahead of Chelsea


Chelsea forward, Eden Hazard has conceded that Manchester City will win the Premier League title this season.

Hazard admitted that Chelsea are aiming for a top-four finish, adding that Manchester City are like Chelsea in so many ways.

Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri suffered his first ever Premier League defeat at the hands of Tottenham on Saturday.

The result leaves Chelsea sitting fourth in the table, seven points adrift of first-placed leaders, City.

“We are thinking about finishing in the top four, not to be the champions,” the Belgian forward told Sky Sports.

“We know City are not much better than Chelsea but they are better at the moment.

“In what areas are City better? A lot of things: possession; when they have chances, they score; maybe defensively they are better. They have top players.

“Is it due to their consistency as well, winning game after game? Yes, of course.

“They are in a good momentum since last year and we need to be back like this.”

Hazard expressed confidence that Chelsea can bounce back from the defeat to Spurs and urged his team-mates not to panic ahead of their clash with Fulham.
