At the start of the season, many didn’t consider Chelsea to be favourites to win the Premier League title this season. Consecutive losses to Liverpool and Arsenal in September had many doubting if we would make the top four this season.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte changed the formation and turned things around after the loss to Arsenal in September and Chelsea are now favourites to win the title.
Chelsea magician Eden Hazard claims everyone at Chelsea always knew we were ready to win the title this season.
“At the start of the season, everyone was thinking ‘Chelsea are a good team with a new manager in Antonio Conte but I don’t know if they can contend for the title’. But within the team, we know each other and we knew we were ready to win,” Hazard said as quoted by Daily Star.
“Maybe outside, people saw it differently. I think most people were thinking that Chelsea could be top four but not champions. Now, though, we are top of the league, so we just want to stay there. We are motivated by being in a good position but also because last season was very bad.
“So we want to be there again, to be at the top again, for the fans. This is why we are top now.”
