Chelsea winger Eden Hazard believes the Blues will be Premier League champions if they can keep producing performances like last week's 1-0 victory at Manchester City.
Manager Jose Mourinho played down Chelsea's title chances after the win at the Etihad, but Hazard reckons they have laid down a marker by beating one of their main rivals, although he is not so sure about their chances of success in Europe.
"I don't think we'll win the Champions League this season because some teams are better than we are," said the 23-year-old Belgian in an interview with French daily L'Equipe.
"As for the Premier League, we'll see. If we play all our games like we did at City, we'll be champions."
Hazard, who scored a hat-trick in Saturday's 3-0 home victory over Newcastle United, has been labelled by Mourinho as the "best young player in the world" and he returned the compliment to the Portuguese coach.
"His record speaks for itself. No team had managed to win at City. So it's clear," said Hazard.
"Those who still had doubts over his potential can stop. He has already shown he's the best manager in the world."
