This season’s title race may be the toughest we might have seen in the Premier League for a number of years now.

Chelsea, Watford and Liverpool are yet to drop points this season, while champions Manchester City are two points off, and Tottenham only recently dropped points against Watford on Sunday.

Chelsea star Eden Hazard is having a good season, and the Belgian who has won two Premier League titles with the Blues believes Maurizio Sarri’s side can fight for the title this season.

“Of course, in the end we want to compete for the first three places,” Hazard said.

“We want to be champions at the end although we know it will be hard because Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham are very strong. So we will see at the end, but we want to be at the top.

“We can improve [on the Bournemouth game], of course. We didn’t concede a goal – that’s a good point. We scored two, maybe we should have scored more – like always.

“I think we can move the ball quicker – in the first we were a bit slower. We can improve. We have the confidence.

“We have the international break now. We can rest a bit some players. We have a lot of hard games when we get back.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
