Eden Hazard: Man City have better players and are title favourites
Eden Hazard still feels that Manchester City are the favourites to win the Premier League title this season
Eden Hazard still feels that Manchester City are the favourites to win the Premier League title – despite Chelsea’s seven-point lead at the top of the table.
The Blues extended their advantage over second-placed Liverpool to seven points thank to their comprehensive 4-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
City are still favourites as they have the better players
City, however, can move back to the top of the table should they win their three games in hand over Jose Mourinho’s men.
And Belgian playmaker Hazard believes that Manuel Pellegrini’s men still remain the front-runners to lift the trophy in May.
“Manchester City will become champions if they win all of their games. But if we get the chance, we will take it,” Hazard told Sporting Telenet.
“We have enough quality to play for first spot, but City are still favourites as they have the better players.
“It’s more difficult to be second or third with some games less as you have to win those games. We’ll see what happens at the end.
“The season is still long, I feel a bit tired, but I’m not the only one.
“If we want to win something this season, we’ll have to survive games like those against Spurs.”
