Eden Hazard: Thanked Frank Lampard for giving up penalty

Hazard's first hat-trick in English football was the difference between Chelsea and Newcastle on Saturday and sent his side a point clear at the top after Arsenal and Manchester City failed to win.

Jose Mourinho's side have 13 games to hang on to their lead, but the manager continues to insist City are favourites for the title.

Hazard is not deviating too far from the party line, but the Belgium international is at least allowing himself to "dream".

He said: "Top of the league. I go in my bed, I dream. I hope at the end of the season it will be the same. It's a pleasure to play for this team and to work for that."

Mourinho holds up Hazard as the epitome of the work ethic he has sought to impose since returning to Stamford Bridge, and the manager on Saturday demanded greater recognition for his in-form player.

Hazard said: "I work every day. I feel good on the pitch. I have experience now, because last season was my first. I try every game to make the difference for the team. It was another good day for me."

Frank Lampard handed over penalty duties for the third goal against Newcastle, and a grateful Hazard said: "It's a good present. Without the team I'm nothing.

"I just want to say thank you. Thank you, Lamps, for the penalty, because normally it's for him. I just said 'if you want it, take it, I don't care'. He said 'no, no'."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
