Hazard helped his side open up a seven-point lead at the top of the table on Saturday as he scored from the penalty spot in the 4-0 drubbing of 10-man Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues now hold a nine-point advantage over Manuel Pellegrini's City, but the Etihad Stadium outfit have three games in hand and boast a superior goal difference.

Jose Mourinho claimed prior to the weekend success that the title was City's to lose, and Belgium international Hazard appears to be on the same page as the Portuguese coach.

Hazard told Belgian TV station Sporting Telenet: "Manchester City will become champions if they win all of their games. But if we get the chance, we will take it.

"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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
