Eden Hazard has warned Liverpool FC that Chelsea FC are flying high and full of confidence ahead of their double-header against Jurgen Klopp’s men.

The west London side have made a strong start to the new campaign under new boss Maurizio Sarri, but they dropped their first Premier League points of the season on Sunday when they were held to a goalless draw by West Ham United at the London Stadium.

Liverpool FC, meanwhile, have won all six of their opening Premier League games of the season to leave them flying high at the top of the table, and the weekend’s results allowed Klopp’s men to open up a two-point lead at the summit.

Chelsea FC are now preparing for their League Cup trip to Anfield on Wednesday night, before Klopp’s men take on the Blues at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

And Hazard says that the west London side are full of confidence as they continue to get used to life under new boss Sarri.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Hazard said: “We are all happy on the pitch.

“We just need to keep playing like we are. We are full of confidence at the moment. Liverpool is the kind of game where you want to shine and we will, I hope.”

Chelsea FC are aiming to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this season after the Blues finished in fifth place and won the FA Cup under Antonio Conte last term.
