Frank Lampard has warned Manchester City that Eden Hazard is looking like he’s back to his best form for Chelsea ahead of Saturday’s showdown at Stamford Bridge.

Hazard was named as the man of the match as he produced an impressive display for the Blues in their thrilling 2-1 victory over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The 26-year-old has been working his way back to full fitness after missing the start of the season with an ankle injury.

The Belgium international will be hoping to start for Chelsea when the Blues take on Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

And former midfielder Lampard, who played alongside Hazard during his final few years at Chelsea, believes that the attacker has rediscovered his top form for the west London side.

Speaking on BT Sport on Wednesday night, Lampard said of Hazard: “When he’s at his best, he runs so directly at defenders, and there are not many players who do that.

“His centre of gravity is so low. He’s strong, he’s not scared of anyone and he can make things happen.”

Chelsea, who won the title in Antonio Conte’s first campaign at the club last season, head into the game in third place in the Premier League table and three points behind leaders Manchester City.

It seems as though Manchester City will be without Sergio Aguero after he was injured in a car crash on Thursday night.
