Lack of limelight suits Hazard

Lack of limelight suits Hazard

Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard says he is happy for his side to go under the radar when it comes to the Premier League title race.

The Blues have made a perfect start to the season on four wins from four, with only Liverpool and surprise-package Watford being able to maintain their own 100 percent winning start.

Much of the talk at the start of the campaign has been about the predicted two-way battle between Liverpool and Manchester City to see who will finish top of the pile come the end of the season.

That attention on the Citizens and the Reds suits Hazard perfectly and the Belgian international is happy for his side to just go about their Premier League business under the radar.

He was quoted by TEAMtalk, saying: "We are a little bit in the shadow. We just try to do our job, win games and then we will see.

"Of course, I believe, especially in Premier League, you never know what can happen. They [Chelsea's title rivals] can drop points, we can win points.

"In a couple of weeks' time we are playing Liverpool, which is a massive game. So if we win [we have a good chance]. Last year we won 1-0 here, so we need to repeat this."
