Eden Hazard believes that the key to Chelsea beating Arsenal lies in keeping Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil quiet at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues head into the game as the heavy favourites to win the Premier League title this season following their impressive form under new boss Antonio Conte.

Chelsea are currently nine points clear at the top of the Premier League table as they look to claim a win which would all but end Arsenal’s title hopes.

Arsenal, however, know that a win would cut the gap to the leaders down to six points and reignite their top-flight title hopes.

Arsenal were 3-0 winners over the Blues when the two teams last met at The Emirates back in September.

However, Hazard has insisted that Saturday’s game is not about revenge for the west London side.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Hazard said: “It’s not revenge. Revenge is more for the fans because we lost there.

“Now we are playing a different system and the game will be completely different. We are ready. Let’s hope for a good game. We just want to stay top of the league.”

Asked about the key to stopping Arsenal at Stamford Bridge, Hazard added: “The Sanchez and Ozil connection. Ozil can do everything with the ball, as we saw in the first game at the Emirates. Sanchez can score in every game. If we stop them, we have a chance to win.”
