Hazard: Champions League has affected Chelsea's Prem title defence

Mohamed Elneny has claimed that Arsenal still have a chance of winning the Premier League title this season.

The Blues lie fourth in the table after 26 matches, 19 points adrift of runaway leaders Manchester City, and head coach Antonio Conte's future at Stamford Bridge is in serious doubt after two humiliating defeats in succession against Bournemouth and Watford.

Both WhoScored and Sky Sports are in agreement that Chelsea's Eden Hazard is now the most in-form player in the Premier League.

Chelsea will be playing against Barcelona next week in the champions league first leg knock stage.

Mauricio Pochettino's side can move, if only temporarily up to third place with the win while victory would see Arsene Wenger's men move to within a point of their rivals and two of the Champions League qualification places ahead of the rest of the weekend's fixtures.

Elneny said in an interview with beIN Sports: "There's nothing impossible in the English Premier League. In any case I want to help the team to win titles or be in a good position in the league". We have to get diving out of the game.

The headline purchases were Morata and Tiemoue Bakayoko, but the Spain worldwide has struggled for goals after a promising start to his Blues career and the Frenchman has been inconsistent.

"You know, they have a guy who is not from this world", Hazard said, according to FourFourTwo. "You never know what's going to happen, especially in England".

"That's why we love football. I'm pretty sure we can beat them if we play together".
