Eden Hazard has admitted that he is not sure whether Chelsea’s squad is stronger than last season following their summer transfer business.

The Blues have signed a number of new players this summer but also let many stars leave the club, including the likes of John Terry, Nathan Ake and Nemanja Matic.

Antonio Conte brought in six new signings as Chelsea wrapped up deals for Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Alvaro Morata, Danny Drinkwater and Davide Zappacosta.

However, Hazard has suggested that he is not yet convinced about whether the Chelsea squad is strong than the side last season.

Hazard told Spanish newspaper Marca: “I don’t know (if the squad is stronger). We’ll see at the end of the season.

“We won the league last year, so if we repeat that this year then we can say that the team is stronger. We have lost some important players, but that’s compensated with the new arrivals.

“We will see, adapting to the new squad and trying to win games.”

Chelsea fans will be hoping to see Hazard, who has been out with an ankle injury, make his first appearance of the season for the Blues when they take on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

The west London side have won two and lost one of their opening three Premier League games.
