Cape Town - Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has subtly ruled out Arsenal as a potential title candidate for this season's English Premier League.

Following the 2-1 win over London rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, the Blues kept their place at the top the standings.

Pedro and Victor Moses' goals overturned a one-goal deficit from Christian Eriksen's early strike - to break the last unbeaten record in the English top-flight.

Arsenal have only lost once all season, in their opening game against Liverpool, but when quizzed about who he sees as title challengers - he did not mentioned Arsene Wenger's side.

"Man City and Liverpool. They are both good," the Belgian told reporters. "If we want to be there at the end, then we have to finish above them."

Hazard has been performed admirably under Antonio Conte this season, with seven goals in 13 league games.
