The Belgian has suggested the race for glory in England is already a three-horse race, notably omitting the Stamford Bridge outfit’s greatest rivals
Eden Hazard says Manchester City and Liverpool are Chelsea’s two rivals to win the Premier League title.
In a snub to the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United, the Belgium international only named two teams as threats to his side’s chances of top-flight glory.
Chelsea are top of the table after 13 matches and face a huge trip to play Manchester City on Saturday.
And Hazard is clear in his view that they and Liverpool are the teams who must be beaten if Antonio Conte is to lift silverware in his first season at Stamford Bridge.
“Man City and Liverpool,”Hazard told reporters when asked who his team’s title rivals are.
“They are both good. If we want to be there at the end, then we have to finish above them.
“Next week we go to Man City – a very good opponent. We want to keep going like this. We are full of confidence and want to win every game.”
Hazard’s words come despite Arsenal being the last team to beat Conte’s side in the league, winning 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium in September.
