The Premier League champions and LaLiga's leaders meet in one of the most attractive last-16 ties later this month, with Chelsea's star forward poised for his latest chance to shine on the biggest stage.

Seb and Elliott recap the weekend's action from the Premier League, including Arsenal's five-goal victory over Everton, Chelsea's collapse at Vicarage Road, and Liverpool's controversial draw against Tottenham at Anfield.

"We changed a couple of things, we lost players, we brought some new ones and every year is different", said Hazard, who was speaking at a Nike event in London to mark the 20th anniversary of Nike's Mercurial football boot.

Having won the Golden Boot in both 2016 and 2017, he can be backed at 4/9 to make it three in a row ahead of Mo Salah and Sergio Aguero who are now one goal and five goals behind him respectively.

The stats prove that, despite our recent struggles, Chelsea have the best player in the Premier League at the current time. "I just think Chelsea, Man City, I fancy Liverpool and Man United". We have to get diving out of the game.

"That's why we love football. I'm pretty sure we can beat them if we play together". I wanted to go back to England and when I had the opportunity to come to Liverpool I was very happy.

"I was also able to play with Totti, which was a dream". I learned a lot from him.

As far as his other immediate ambitions are concerned, Salah said, "I want to be in a good position in the Premier League and help my global team to pass the first phase in the World Cup in Russian Federation. We'll see." Hazard told Marca.
