Eden Hazard: Hoping to play this weekend for Chelsea

Chelsea have the chance to move seven points clear at the top as they are the only one of the top-four in action this weekend, as they host London rivals Tottenham at Stamford Bridge - a game you can see live on Sky Sports 1.

Hazard, though, picked up an ankle injury during Belgium's 2-2 draw with Ivory Coast - which has made him a doubt.

Hazard only came on just after the hour mark, but was caught by Newcastle's Cheick Tiote in a challenge.

Beligan boss Marc Wilmots confirmed the injury was not too bad and said: "His boot was damaged, but Eden hasn't twisted his ankle."

Hazard played-on and completed the match, and he insists that he should be fit for the clash with Spurs.

"It hurt, but I think I can play this weekend," Hazard told Het Laatste Nieuws.

"After 20 seconds I got a kick. A nice welcome, but I'm not worried about the injury."

Hazard admits that he wants to start every match, but admits he does not want burn himself out.

"I'm not that tired. In the first half against Fulham I felt it a bit, but in the second I found my flow back. I don't need that much rest, I'm at my best when I can play a lot of games. But I've to be careful that I dont burn myself.

"I'm in super form. Something you see in the stats and in my consistency. I see

Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho believes Hazard is one of the best player's in the world, and has hailed his recent form.

"Mourinho and I have a normal relationship. He says things straight in your face and I like it. They may call him The Special One, but for me he's the Normal One," said Hazard - who insists he still has some work to do to be one of the best in the world.

"He calls me the best player of my generation and it is a huge compliment. I try to be my best. With periods I can be the best of my generation, but there will be periods when others will be.

"I still have some work to do, I have to score more goals, have to give more key passes. What I'm doing now, but then twice as much.

"The five top candidates for 'the Ballon d'Or score all the time. I hope to achieve their level one day."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
