Chelsea and Belgium forward, Eden Hazard, has said that Manchester United and Arsenal are their biggest Premier League title rivals.

The Blues are currently top of the table, nine points clear of Arsenal who they play at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and 15 points ahead of United, who are in sixth place.

In an interview with Thierry Henry for Sky Sports, Hazard said: “I think Arsenal and Manchester United [are the biggest title rivals]

“United had a bad first part of the season and I think for a couple of games now, they played well. They drew against Stoke, but they have good players and the squad is very good. The manager is good, so they will be second or third.

“Tottenham also are strong. We lost there, but for me it is more Manchester United. They are more experienced. That is my opinion, maybe I'm wrong.”

When Henry asked Hazard to compare working under former Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho and current manager, Antonio Conte, he said: “In tactics and training we do more with Conte.

“We work a lot of tactical positions and we know exactly what we have to do on the pitch, where I have to go and where the defenders have to go.

“We know exactly what to do. With Mourinho, he put in a system but we didn't work lots. We know what to do because we play football, but maybe the automatisms were a little bit different.

“With Mourinho, Nemanja Matic was behind me in the season when we won the title and sometimes I stayed in front and Matic did the job.

“With Conte it's different. I close more inside because Marcos Alonso is there as a wing-back. I just need to be ready to counter-attack if we get the ball”, He said.
