Eden Hazard believes Chelsea are out of the Premier League title race

NO CHANCE

The Blues are seven points behind leaders Manchester City after defeat at Tottenham on Saturday

Eden Hazard has made an honest admission by saying Chelsea will not win the Premier League title this season despite it only being November.

After the Blues lost their unbeaten record on Saturday in the 3-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur, the Belgian feels the result showed they are not at the same level as leaders and current champions Manchester City.

Hazard was unable to have an impact for Chelsea at Wembley and believes the club’s ambitions are only to return to the Champions League.

“We’re thinking about finishing in the top four, not to be the champions,” Hazard said.

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

“In what areas are City better? A lot. Possession. When they have chances, they score.

“Maybe defensively they are better. They have top players.

“Their consistency as well, winning game after game. They are in a good momentum since last year and we need to be back like this.”

Rumours of a move away from Chelsea continue to surround Hazard, who is wanted once again by LaLiga giants Real Madrid.

Chelsea return to Premier League action on Sunday lunchtime when they contest another London derby, this time against Fulham at Stamford Bridge.
