    Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard has said that the title race is down to three teams.

    The Belgian international has pointed to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool as the two main threats to Chelsea winning the Premier League this season.

    Chelsea are sitting at the top of the table after ending Spurs’ unbeaten start to the campaign with a 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge.

    They are closely followed by Liverpool and City, who are both just a point behind, and Hazard pointed to the two as the main challengers when asked who could stop Chelsea lifting the title in Antonio Conte’s first season.

    “Man City and Liverpool.” he said.

    “They are both good. If we want to be there at the end, then we have to finish above them.” he added.

    Chelsea face City on Saturday, while Liverpool will host Guardiola’s men on new year’s eve at Anfield. The Reds have already faced Chelsea this season, when they came out 2-1 winners in London.
