EPL: Neymar makes shocking Premier League top-four title prediction


Eden Hazard insists Chelsea have the "confidence" to rival Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham for the Premier League title this season. Watford is the second-best team in the league defensively when looking at expected goals conceded, or the number of goals they'd be expected to give up based. Now, with the global break, we can rest a bit and then we have a lot of hard games when we come back.

Hazard said: "In a couple of weeks we are playing Liverpool here in a massive game".

Speaking after his sides latest win - a 2-0 defeat of Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge last Saturday - Hazard admitted that he and his teammates have ambitions on lifting that famous Premier League trophy for the third time in six seasons at the end of this campaign. We want to go through the group.

The win, which was secured thanks to goals from Troy Deeney and Craig Cathcart and saw Watford come from behind, leaves the Hornets sitting third in the table heading into the worldwide break.

"At the moment we are not losing games so it is easy to say we are good, we are lovely but if we lose games then we need to stay together and be better".

The Blues will take on Liverpool at Anfield in the Carabao Cup just three days prior to their Premier League meeting.

Hazard believes that the new style of play helps the Blues be as unsafe as possible in the final third, and he is looking forward to testing the football against top opposition in the coming months. For sure, [against] Man City, Liverpool, when it [could be] 50-50, you never know.

"PSG are one of the most exciting teams in the world and I think their target is to win the Champions League so that will be two interesting matches", Klopp said after last week's draw. "That's why we need the ball".
