Eden Hazard: Endured some rough stuff against Man United

Eden Hazard has admitted that he is happy for Chelsea to go under-the-radar this season for as long as possible.

The Blues’ carried on their perfect start to the season on Saturday, beating Bournemouth 2-0 at Stamford Bridge to make it four wins from four.

Hazard, who has amassed a combined four goals and assists so far this season so far, believes that Chelsea can win the title.

“That’s good,” Hazard said when asked about Chelsea not being considered serious title contenders.

“We are a little bit in the shadow. We just try to do our job, win games and then we will see.

“Of course, I believe, especially in Premier League, you never know what can happen. They [Chelsea’s title rivals] can drop points, we can win points.

“In a couple of weeks’ time we are playing Liverpool, which is a massive game. So if we win [we have a good chance]. Last year we won 1-0 here, so we need to repeat this.

“He [Sarri] just wants us to play football. We have good players to play football and at the moment we are enjoying games, but we’ll see [if we are] a strong team when we lose a game. At the moment we are not losing, so it’s easy to say we are good, we are beautiful.

“But if we lose a game, then we have to stay together and be better. I think with [Jose] Mourinho when we won the league, we started well also, but of course this is good to start well.”
