Hazard backs Chelsea to upset Man City: Youth doesn't matter

Eden Hazard has backed Chelsea to upset Manchester City this weekend.

The Blues head to the Etihad sitting third on the Premier League table, one point ahead of City.

Despite their youth, Hazard says his former side are capable of ruffling a few feathers in Manchester.

"Of course [Chelsea can beat City], I think so," he said.

"It's not going to be easy, it's hard to play there. Last time we played there, we lost 6-0, so bad memories for me and Chelsea.

"But this season I think they are really good. Still really young, but really good, so why not go there and win the game."
