Chelsea superstar, Eden Hazard said he was confident that the team can confidently compete for the Premier League title this season.
The Belgian international, however, noted that the trio of Manchester City, Tottenham and Liverpool could serve as hindrances to the victory of the team.
Although Chelsea finished woefully last season, their performance since the start of this season has been exceptionally charming.
“Of course, in the end we want to compete for the first three places,” the Belgium forward was quoted by Metro UK as saying after their 2-0 win over Bournemouth.
“We want to be champions at the end although we know it will be hard because Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham are very strong.
“So we will see at the end, but we want to be at the top.
“We can improve [on the Bournemouth game], of course. We didn’t concede a goal – that’s a good point.
“We scored two, maybe we should have scored more – like always.

“I think we can move the ball quicker – in the first we were a bit slower. We can improve.
“We have the confidence. We have the international break now. We can rest a bit some players.
“We have a lot of hard games when we get back.”
