Chelsea star Eden Hazard is convinced Chelsea can fight for the title this season.
Hazard admits Chelsea’s performances against Liverpool in the League Cup and Premier League last week is prove Chelsea can fight for the title this season.
Hazard opened the scoring in the 1-1 draw with Liverpool on Saturday which ended their 100% start to the season.
“We are playing well and hopefully something good can happen this season,” Hazard said.
“I think we can challenge with Liverpool and City, who are probably the best teams at the moment.
“We’ve played Liverpool twice [having also beaten them 2-1 at Anfield in the Carabao Cup last Wednesday] and were so close to winning both games.
“So we are almost there and I think we can challenge with these teams.
“We have a new manager, with new players, but we are winning games and confidence is high at the moment.”
Chelsea left-back Marcos Alonso also believes Chelsea are title contenders after adapting to Sarri’s style very quickly.
Alonso said: “With the quality we have in the team this is a great way to play for us. We can have control of the ball, we can have control of the game like this.
“It’s a way of playing we all like and we are enjoying our football at the moment.”
