Eden Hazard says Chelsea should win the title by playing like they did against Arsenal - and not like Liverpool the week before.

Hazard and co underlined their status as champions elect when dispatching their north London rivals 3-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The victory all but ended Arsenal’s pretensions to the crown and was achieved with real swagger.

Hazard capped off a memorable lunchtime with a goal of real quality as he waltzed past three Gunners before firing low into the net.

Two years ago under Jose Mourinho, Chelsea all but parked the bus in getting themselves over the line after getting the jump on their rivals.

But the Belgian winger believes the Arsenal victory demonstrates how sticking it to their rivals rather than sitting back is literally the way forward.

“Against Arsenal, we were a more attacking team yes, but against Liverpool it was a little bit the same (as two years ago) where we sat back and were waiting for the team to get the ball, he said.

“But I think we should play in this situation like we did against Arsenal every game.

“We have to play, we have the players, we don't want to stay back and wait for the counter attack.”

Chelsea remain nine points clear of closest pursuers Tottenham with 42 points left to play for.
