Eden Hazard insisted that his side ‘need to be focused’ in their hunt for a top-four finish after beating Huddersfield on Saturday, and also spoke on how the Blues can beat Manchester City.

​Chelsea took a big step towards reaching their goal on Saturday after a thumping 5-0 win over Huddersfield in the Premier League, with Hazard scoring a brace to send his side on course to an emphatic victory at Stamford Bridge.

Maurizio Sarri’s side will face a tougher test next time out, though, as the Blues travel to face champions ​Manchester City away next Sunday. Speaking to ​Chelsea TV​Hazard admitted: “Need to be focused… But we are Chelsea. We can beat anyone if we want.”

Asked more specifically how Chelsea can beat the champions next weekend, Hazard responded: “N’Golo [Kante] and David [Luiz]. That’s the best way to win the game.

“It’s going to be a different game. I think they will have the ball, because City have these kind of players.

“We will defend well and score one goal or two.”

January signing ​Gonzalo Higuain also scored his first goals for his new side during Saturday’s emphatic win, as the Argentine forward matched Hazard’s attacking exploits by recording a brace of his own, with defender David Luiz rounding off the result with a late fifth for ​Chelsea.

The result saw Sarri’s side leapfrog ​Arsenal once again and return to the top four, however the Gunners have a game in hand as they play Manchester City on Sunday.
