Eden Hazard believes that Manchester United and Arsenal will be among Chelsea’s main challengers for the Premier League title this season.

The Blues are aiming to defend their Premier League crown this term after having won the competition in Antonio Conte’s first campaign in charge at the club last season.

Chelsea made a stuttering start to the new campaign when they lost 3-2 to Burnley on the opening weekend of the season, but the Blues have since bounced back by securing victories over both Tottenham and Everton.

Manchester United have made a flying start to the campaign and are currently top of the table, Arsenal are struggling in 16th place, while Liverpool have also been in impressive form.

And Hazard admits that the Blues will have their work cut out in the coming weeks and months as they look to try and defend their title.

Hazard told the Daily Mail, as quoted by Metro: “It’s not just one team, I think all of the teams have got really good players.

“Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City and good managers as well. So we will see…”

Chelsea return to Premier League action with a trip to Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.

Hazard is in line to make his first appearance of the season for the Blues after missing out so far due to injury.
