The Blues remained at the top of the league table with 31 points from 13 matches. They are followed by Liverpool and Manchester City respectively who are tied on 30 points from as many matches.

Arsenal are at the fourth position with a point less than the Reds and Cityzens.

After registering a smooth win in the London derby, Hazard spoke to the media about the club's performance and their chances in the current title race.

On Chelsea's title rivals, he said: "Man City and Liverpool. They are both good. If we want to be there at the end, then we have to finish above them."

Arsenal are yet to lose a game in the English Premier League since the opening day fixture against Liverpool.

Arsene Wenger's men have remained unbeaten so far and are very well placed in the title race. Eden Hazard's comments on the current scenario will surely infuriate the Arsenal fans who share a bitter relation with the Blues.

Chelsea take on 'title rivals' Manchester City in the coming game week. It will be a battle of tactics between two of the finest managers in world football, Antonio Conte and Pep Guardiola.

On their match against City and former teammate Kevin De Bruyne's performance this season, Hazard opined: "He's a top player. He didn't get his chance here at Chelsea but did very well in Germany and since he went to City he's been on fire.

"Sometimes you don't get the chance to play, or the system the manager uses isn't right for you, but now he's full of confidence. I hope next week he'll have less confidence!

"It's good for Belgium that two players are fighting for the title in England, but I hope when we go to the national team we don't fight! We're good friends."
