Chelsea are currently nine points clear of second-placed Tottenham in the Premier League but Chelsea magician Eden Hazard doesn’t think Tottenham are Chelsea’s closest title rivals.
According to Eden Hazard, Arsenal and Manchester United are the teams that will push Chelsea the closest in the race for the Premier League title.
“I think Arsenal and Manchester United [are Chelsea’s biggest title rivals],” Hazard told Sky Sports in an interview with Thierry Henry.
“United had a bad first part of the season and I think for a couple of games now, they played well. They drew against Stoke but they have good players and the squad is very good. The manager is good, so they will be second or third.
“Tottenham also are strong. We lost there but for me it is more Manchester United. They are more experienced. That is my opinion, maybe I’m wrong.”
