Hazard: Confident Chelsea can win Premier League title

Eden Hazard believes Chelsea’s confidence will see them clinch the Premier League title ahead of their rivals this season.

The Blues currently sit seven points clear of second-placed Arsenal, having played a game less than the Gunners.

With eight matches still to play, Hazard concedes that he and his team-mates are remaining focused on the job in hand, but believes that they can win their first league title since the 2009-10 season.

"We are confident as a team - we are first in the Premier League and we are just taking it game after game,” he is quoted as saying by the Daily Express.

"We played beautiful football in our last match against Stoke, and we deserved to score three or four, but the most important thing was the victory.

"We just want to bring the trophy back to Stamford Bridge."

Chelsea face QPR at Loftus Road on Sunday.
