Frank Lampard's young Blues side have impressed and now sit third in the table, a point ahead of Pep Guardiola's men.

Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League from 5pm.

When asked if he was surprised by Lampard's impact at Chelsea while on worldwide duty with Belgium, Hazard told reporters: "No, not at all".

Key to Chelsea's & England's success?

If Manchester City's owners really do want to project a good image of themselves all around the world via the fortunes of their football team, the post-Pep plan is surely becoming obvious.

The Blues have won their last six games in the Premier League to leave them third in the table. Maybe with two or three more players, they would be first.

"When I watch them, no Hazard but it's a party!"

"I still have good friends there".

"Of course they can beat Man City".

Eden Hazard was a part of that game where the Londoners were drubbed away from home, but even he believes that his former employers are in a much better position now, and can possibly even win this game.

Obi Mikel, now playing in Turkey, spent 11 seasons at Chelsea, five of them alongside Hazard, but was far from complimentary of the Real Madrid forward's work ethic, while insisting Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was the hardest working.
