'The last one is Eden Hazard.

The Belgium global winger has started the season in electric form for Maurizio Sarri's men, netting five times in the Premier League already this term.

They have failed to win any of their last six London derbies (D4, L2) and have lost 95 in the Premier League, more than any other side.

As with most World Cup stars, he was given an extended holiday after the tournament and missed some of Chelsea's pre-season. Liverpool and the Spurs clashed at Wembley Stadium in what ended as a 2-1 win for Liverpool.

Watford made an unexpectedly flawless start to the campaign but that was now over after being beaten 2-1 by Manchester United, which is trying to close a six-point gap on the leaders.

He singled out Marouane Fellaini and Romelu Lukaku for praise and even spoke warmly of the match officials when asked about the late sending-off of Nemanja Matic.

"Last year, our away record against the top six wasn't really good and I told the boys it wasn't because the games were away or because they were against the top six, it was because we didn't defend as good as we could", he said.

However, Hazard remained a Chelsea player and has started the season in phenomenal form.

And he drew a laugh when he joked about goal-scorer Chris Smalling's new haircut. I thought it was better to have training and rest. "I don't want to talk about the past". I think I am one of the few managers who is bored by the transfer market. City continue to charge for their defense of the Premier League title.
