David Luiz

Eden Hazard reckons Chelsea can still retain the Premier League title. The Blues were held to a 3-3 draw by Roma in their Champions League encounter at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

Asked whether defending champions Chelsea were being left behind in the title race, Hazard said: "I don't agree with that".

Hazard thinks Chelsea, back in Europe after a season's absence, are as good as last season when they won the title in Conte's first campaign.

That knocked hometown hero Jack Miller , who had gone second quickest moments before, down to third on the Marc VDS Honda. The Spaniard clocked 1:29.225, usurping world champion Marc Marquez by just 0.005sec.

Ex-Chelsea boss Ruud Gullit criticised the club hierarchy earlier this week for selling key players like Diego Costa and Nemanja Matic during the summer and failing to buy improvements: "I think they sold some good players - Matic, Costa - and it has been hard to replace them". We will give everything, but I think we're on the same level as previous year.

"We have just two training sessions to focus on a game". Past year we had a whole week to be ready.

The draw with Roma puts more pressure on the return game in Italy.

"I think the best thing we can say about Chelsea is that they were clinical", Hoddle told BT Sport. We have to do better against Roma in Italy next time. "We will try to give everything in the next game".
