Eden Hazard confident Chelsea can surprise Manchester City again next weekend and compered Higuain to Giroud

Eden Hazard believes Chelsea can repeat their surprise trick of beating Manchester City next week after beating Huddersfield 5-0 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

“It’s going to be a different game than two or three months ago,” Hazard told Chelsea TV.

‘I think they will have the ball. City have these kind of players to play together. We will defend well and then we will score one goal or two.”

“We need to be focused,” Hazard said.

“This month is going to be hard, but we are Chelsea. We can beat everyone if we want.”

On-loan Juventus striker Higuain and Hazard teamed up for the first time at Bournemouth, but there was far greater optimism following the win over Huddersfield.

Hazard added: “He’s a great striker. He’s a bit less of a target man than (Olivier) Giroud, but he can hold the ball, he can play one touches. He’s intelligent. In the box he’s unbelievable. He will score more goals.”
