After stuttering starts from title rivals Arsenal, Liverpool and the Manchester sides, Chelsea are now one of the three remaining sides, along with Swansea and Everton, that can boast of a perfect win record.

Hazard hopes that the Blues will be able to sustain their winning run and end the season in the Premier League with silverware.

"At Chelsea you have to win every game. The objective is win, win, win. This season I think there are seven trophies to play for," he told The Sun.

"We played the first one against Manchester City in the Community Shield. If we get two or three from the remaining six that will be great. Big clubs, whether it's Chelsea or Manchester, are formatted to win."

Hazard expressed his delight at how he has taken to life in England both on and off the pitch, having scored one and set up six out of Chelsea's eight goals so far.

"I've adapted very well to life in London. You're always a bit overawed when you arrive at a club with so many big names," he admitted, "But then you tell yourself ‘They are people like me with two arms and two legs'. Of course, I have respect for the players who are already here but it is down to me to tread my own path.

"I had already changed countries when I went from Belgium to France, so I had made a similar step before. The game goes a bit quicker here, the reaction times are maybe a bit shorter, the challenges are stronger and the fans live for football, which is what I needed to feel."

Hazard also credited manager Roberto Di Matteo's style at the club.

"Di Matteo's philosophy is more about playing football than being physical," he continued.

"We do a lot of ball work and pre-season was not as hard as I thought it would be. I was expecting it to be a lot tougher.

"But we're well prepared because we've won our first games.

"What I hope for is to keep on enjoying playing and to be decisive like I have been in the first few games."
