PARIS (REUTERS) - Chelsea will be English Premier League champions if they can keep producing performances like last week's 1-0 victory at Manchester City, according to in-form Belgium winger Eden Hazard.

The Londoners go into Tuesday's game at lowly West Bromwich Albion holding a one-point lead at the top of the table and it was last Monday's win, the first time City had lost at home this season, that laid down a marker for Jose Mourinho's men.

"I don't think we'll win the Champions League this season because some teams are better than we are," the 23-year-old Hazard told the French daily L'Equipe in an interview published on Tuesday.

"As for the Premier League, we'll see. If we play all our games like we did at City we'll be champions."
