Cape Town - Chelsea's Eden Hazard says he is confident Belgium international team-mate Kevin De Bruyne will prove his worth this season at Manchester City.

De Bruyne was cast out during his time at Chelsea and was ultimately sold to Wolfsburg in January 2014.

Hazard, the reigning PFA Player of the Year, says he expects the City's record signing to show the Premier League what he's capable of.

"He has the qualities to impose himself. He showed last season at Wolfsburg that he is a great player," said the 24-year-old Hazard, who scored in Belgium's 3-1 win over Bosnia on Thursday, was quoted as saying by The Daily Express.

"He has something to prove (in England) and it can only be good for the national team," he added.

Defending champions Chelsea are currently eight points adrift of league leaders Manchester City after just four games.

It does not get any easier for the Blues after the current international break when Jose Mourinho's side travel to Goodison Park to face Everton.

The match kicks off at 13:45 on September 12.
