GETTY Chelsea star Eden Hazard is the Premier League's top scorer

Hazard has started this current Premier League campaign in the form of his life, already notching seven goals and three assists in just eight games to help steer Chelsea level on points with current leaders and reigning Champions Man City.

The 32-year-old France striker told L'Equipe: "For me, Chelsea is the top club in England, the one that has won the most titles over the last 10 years".

"In the last month Morata has played better, and in the last three days I have seen him [play] very well in training".

The forward has suggested his best chance of being crowned the best player in the world would be improved by a move to Madrid but stressed he would not risk damaging his relationship with Chelsea to force a transfer. "So I think for his father, probably the Europa League is not important, but for us it is important".

Now the league's leading scorer with seven goals this term, Hazard has recaptured his best form under Maurizio Sarri, although he told Belgian outlet HLN during the worldwide break that he wishes to work under Mourinho again.

"I could hear all the fans pushing us".

Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck says they'll fight to keep hold of Eden Hazard.

Real Madrid have been keeping tabs on Hazard and the Belgian has done little to put the Spanish giants off lodging a bid.

The Blues playmaker netted 16 goals in Antonio Conte's first season in charge but missed out on a second PFA award after his team-mate N'Golo Kante was voted the league's best player by his colleagues.

In response to former Madrid president Ramon Calderon's claim that Chelsea are treating Hazard like a "slave" if they deny him his dream, Sarri laughed and said Hazard is happy at the club.

"As long as Eden Hazard stays fit and is playing the way he's playing I can't see why they can't win the Premier League".
